IMPACT Series Kicks Off Jan. 25 with Give Smart Author Tom Tierney

Georgia Tech will kick off the Spring 2012 IMPACT Speaker Series on Wednesday Jan. 25 with Tom Tierney, chairman and co-founder of the Bridgespan Group, who will discuss effective philanthropy.

Tierney, author of the book Give Smart: Philanthropy that Gets Results, will speak at 4:30 p.m. in LeCraw Auditorium of the College of Management (800 West Peachtree Street).

Tierney is a recognized leader in serving the nonprofit sector. In 1999, he co-founded the Bridgespan Group, an independent, non-profit organization designed to provide professional services to philanthropists, foundations and other nonprofits.

After graduating from Harvard Business School with an MBA in 1980, Tierney joined Bain & Company, where he rose to chief executive. However, he stepped down from that role in 200 to focus on Bridgespan-related activities.

Free and open to the public, the IMPACT Series brings notable business executives, high-tech entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and intellectual leaders to the College.

Other speakers in the spring 2012 series include Daryl Dulaney, CEO of Siemens Industry; Meredith Rentz, CEO and president of Medshare; and Randy Olson, author of Don't Be Such a Scientist: Talking Substance in an Age of Style.
