This week, the Friday Faculty Spotlight is focused on School of Business faculty member Yolanda Shields, Ph.D. Aside from working at the business school, she’s also a global business adviser/strategist who owns her own business, Yes Builds Coaching & Consulting; an author; and a sought-after speaker and trainer in the areas of business startups, human capital management and entrepreneurship. In addition, she’s a mentor/sherpa at the Tony Elumelu Foundation; Vanderbilt University’s Wond’ry innovation center; and TheStartup.com. She’s currently a board member of the Shenandoah Valley Workforce Development Board and the Shenandoah Community Capital Fund, as well as a GO Virginia Region 8 Council member.
She’s also a scheduled presenter at the School of Business’ 2023 Business Symposium next week.
In her Friday Faculty Spotlight Q&A at su.edu, you’ll learn about how initiative and curiosity brought her to Shenandoah, how she manages her wide-ranging obligations, her teaching style, and her musical career!
