Professional Leadership Certificate

Focused on assisting emerging leaders to accelerate their careers by differentiating their leadership skills and business acumen through education and self discovery, the professional leadership certificate will generate high-value returns and practical results for organizations while preparing leaders for today's ever-changing business environments. You will gain a broader understanding of core business operations while enhancing critical leadership skills to navigate business environments driven by innovation and global markets. Required courses are segmented into three focused areas of learning: leading from within, leading others, and leading organizations.

Leading Well Workshops

Do you want to take your leadership skills to the next level? Leading Well is a workshop series designed for tomorrow’s leaders. This high-level leadership training will prepare participants in a variety of areas. Executives want middle- and upper-level managers who are trailblazers – individuals who connect with people, deliver consistent results, drive innovation and much more. It’s a tough role to fill and finding time to fine tune these skills is scarce.

That’s why Georgia Tech-Savannah developed the Leading Well series – a collection of workshops that help professional pacesetters develop leadership skills within a time frame that is manageable. The workshops were built to delve into developing outstanding leadership skills, foster visionaries, and tool executives with actionable goals.

Some of the topics include working with a multigenerational workforce, apply project management fundamentals, leading change and maximizing innovation, and improvement.

Learners & Leaders Breakfast Series

The Learners & Leaders Breakfast series provides established and emerging Savannah-area leaders the opportunity to gain knowledge on current, relevant, and interesting topics relevant to the local business community. Designed with input from the Savannah business community, the leadership trainings reveal ways companies can maintain a competitive edge to survive in today's economy. Each session includes breakfast, networking, and special guest speakers exploring topics such as technology, innovation, safety management, coaching and mentoring, as well as larger topics like port sustainability.

Past speakers have included:

  • Melissa Furman, assistant dean for the James M. Hull College of Business at Augusta University
  • Don Wiggins, president of Business Valuation & Heritage Capital Group
  • G'Sean Williams, executive director of the Supply Chain and Supplier Performance at SMS Advisors


The Learners & Leaders series provides opportunities for members of the local business community to learn from experienced professionals. I was excited to serve on the business panel for the Succession Planning breakfast. It allowed business leaders to understand the different models used to plan for the future of their company from local experts.
