Will O’Brien Guest Lectures at Miami UniversityApril 11, 2016 Topics: Announcements, News
Sedlak President Will O’Brien was recently invited to be a guest lecturer for the Logistics (MGT 431) course at the Richard T. Farmer School of Business at Miami University. The course is taught by Dave Wheeler, Senior Vice President, Global Supply Chain & Fleet Management at Cintas, whose approach is to mix classroom learning with real world scenarios to provide the students with a more holistic learning experience.
“Cintas’ experience with Sedlak, a leader in supply chain consulting specializing in distribution consulting, made me feel this would be a great fit,” Wheeler said.
O’Brien presented on the subject of distribution network planning, types of distribution centers, and innovative warehouse technologies. The students provided very positive feedback, Wheeler said, and all “valued the practical examples that brought these concepts they learn about to life.”
“Miami University is a great school,” O’Brien said after the presentation. “I have had the pleasure of working with a number of their alumni through the years, so I was excited to have this opportunity. The students were engaged and very impressive, and I hope that I was able to provide a view of the practical applications of what they are learning in Miami’s curriculum.”
