Bruce Rosenthal, Ph.D., dean of the College of Business at Thomas More University, held a session on April 13, 2022, entitled “Getting Your Point Across: Making Effective Presentations,” leading community partners with insight on how to engage and excite an audience while effectively conveying information.

Rosenthal gave the presentation to members of the Northern Kentucky Accountability Group at the Erlanger Branch of the Kenton County Public Library (KCPL). Group leader Natalie Ruppert, MLIS, manager of the Workforce Development/Career & Job Services praised the session, saying it “was educational, entertaining, and motivational! I received very favorable feedback, and I know we heightened awareness of Thomas More’s Credential Program. Your stories are great! I want to go back to school after listening to you.”

The Northern Kentucky Accountability Group, sponsored by KCPL, is a job search support group for professionals in career transition due to layoff, business closure, change in life situation, or a desire to switch careers. Group participants have access to KCPL job search support classes, job skill classes, weekly speakers, networking opportunities, connections to community partners, job leads, and assistance from staff and volunteer coaches. All information is based on current industry trends and community needs.

Rosenthal has had a long and varied career in business and education. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Syracuse University, a Master of Business Administration in international business at Rutgers University, and a doctorate in health policy from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. Throughout his career, Rosenthal has been a champion of creativity and innovative thinking, experiential programs, diversity initiatives, resource recruitment strategies, and business sustainability programs.
