2010 Conclave To Feature Harvard Business School Professors



AGS announced Tuesday that two leading Harvard Business School professors will be teaching workshops that give participants not only a hands-on experience with the HBS curriculum, but will teach them bold new ways to conduct business.

Professor Rajiv Lal, the Stanley Roth, Sr. Professor of Retailing at HBS will teach "Can You Compete with Blue Nile? Yes, We Can!" In this workshop, Dr. Lal will work with participants on the decisions facing jewelers competing with Internet retailers, and will offer strategies and solutions for responding to those challenges.

Professor Guhan Subramanian, the Joseph Flom Professor of Law and Business at the Harvard Law School and the H. Douglas Weaver Professor of Business Law at the Harvard Business School, will teach "Effective Negotiations: How to Craft Win-Win Solutions." Participants will learn a simple approach to resolving customer disputes, building vendor alliances, negotiating salaries, and capturing value-creating opportunities, in order to craft mutually-beneficial, long-term relationships.

The American Gem Society Conclave will be held April 21-24, 2010 at the Westin Copley Place in Boston. For information about Conclave, please contact Jennifer Dennis at (866) 805-6500×1031.
