Standing Tall in an Upside-Down World
Kent Noble will be providing an overview of a principled-leadership program that uses the Code of the West
as its organizing concept. The program, Standing Tall in an Upside-Down World, was created by the University of Wyoming College of Business and the Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership and is marketed to Wyoming’s business community through the Wyoming Chamber Partnership.
By design, this program is as much about motivating
as it is about educating
. To that end, we created this initiative with the goal of inspiring business people to become principled leaders in their companies, industries, and communities at large. While Wyoming is a long way from Wall Street, surveys show that Americans don't think businesses or business leaders can be trusted. Therefore, we feel there's a real need for the "good guys" in the business world to stand up and show what exactly it is they stand for and believe. Through this initiative, the Wyoming business community has a unique opportunity to be viewed as a leader in this area.
Kent Noble is the Assistant Dean for External Relations at the University of Wyoming College of Business. During his tenure, the college has secured approximately $25 million in gift commitments and matching dollars. Other responsibilities include the college’s marketing, outreach, and media relations efforts. Kent has spearheaded the development and delivery of Standing Tall in an Upside-Down World, a statewide principled-leadership initiative for Wyoming’s business community, and he has coproduced the award-winning film, The Code of the West: Alive and Well in Wyoming. Kent is currently a member of the implementation team for two new energy tracks for the college’s MBA program and he will soon be overseeing the launch of the Wyoming Business Hall of Fame, a fall 2013 initiative. Prior to joining the UW College of Business in 2007, Kent was the Senior Associate Athletics Director at the University of Wyoming where he supervised the department’s fundraising, corporate sales, marketing and promotions, ticket office, and media relations. Kent sits on the board of the Laramie Downtown Clinic, the Cowboy Ethics Steering Committee, and the Wyoming Youth Initiative. Kent and his wife Leslie have three children: Lindsey (13), Tate (11), and Ella (7).
