Columbia Professor Rita McGrath To Kick Off BBVA Compass' Business Strategy Forum

HOUSTON, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- BBVA Compass announced today that influential author and Columbia Business School professor Rita McGrath will headline the bank's Business Strategy Forum series, which is designed to put entrepreneurs and senior executives face to face with the leading business thinkers.

The series, which begins June 18 in Jacksonville, Fla., and includes stops in six other cities in the bank's Sunbelt footprint, will combine public appearances and private speaking engagements for the bank's clients.

"We want to provide our clients with value-added insights that help them grow their businesses and strengthen our relationships," said Rafael Bustillo, head of commercial banking for BBVA Compass. "We're doing that in a big way by joining with Harvard Business Review Press to give our clients direct access to Rita McGrath. She's one of the world's leading authorities on business strategy and has a unique perspective on how to compete in a world of constant change and uncertainty."

Harvard Business Review Press is publishing McGrath's latest book, "The End of Competitive Advantage: How to Keep Your Strategy Moving as Fast as Your Business," which was released this week. The book advises executives to learn how to exploit short-lived opportunities with speed and decisiveness in order to win in volatile and uncertain environments. Fortune 500 companies and international organizations have sought her advice, and she has been recognized as one of the top 10 business school professors to follow on Twitter (@rgmcgrath). 

McGrath will also speak in Birmingham, Phoenix, Denver, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth. The series ends on June 27.
