Patti Tenenbaum is a Program Manager on our team; she recently assumed a leadership role among program managers that involves coordinating their common activities such as distributing the programs among them to assure a reasonably fair workload. Here, in her own words, is what Patti wants you to know about her.
As Program Manager with Cox Executive Education custom programs, I am fortunate to have the best of both worlds. I work with many talented individuals within the university’s academic setting as well as outside in the business sector of top companies and organizations. In Executive Education, we collaborate and draw together the business and academic environments to provide exceptional client programs and experiences.
With previous experience in corporate, advertising and customer-focused professions, I integrate, execute and deliver the program vision of the client and ensure their satisfaction with the results. Retaining client partnerships and offering high-level operational excellence is an especially important customer focus for Cox Executive Education.
As an SMU masters degree candidate in Organizational Dynamics, I appreciate the importance of adult education and leadership development. This point-of-view has given me an added element of understanding and perspective toward helping to create and plan the best client curriculum that matches the logistics. It also is important in building and maintaining a trusted relationship that keeps the client’s needs fulfilled.
Originally from South Carolina and the southeast, I have been a resident of Plano for the past 19 years. I enjoy swimming, gardening, and currently hold a purple belt in Tang Soo Do karate. My husband and I have enjoyed raising our two children in the Dallas area and watching them enter into a world where professional, lifelong education and development will be an ongoing and valued endeavor.
