The University of Washington Bothell School of Business has formalized a collaboration with Nintex to sponsor the school’s prestigious Leadership Breakfast Series, now entering its fourth year.

The Nintex™ Leadership Breakfast Series assembles influential business leaders in the Puget Sound region to share their lessons in leadership with MBA students. Students learn from the actual experiences of visionary leaders. Brett Campbell, co-founder of  Nintex, says it is critical to create a strong culture of leadership. “Good leaders are people who inspire trust in their team and never become unapproachable. Being able to make decisions and set directions is key, but so is bringing your team on the journey to make those decisions. Good leaders invest time and energy into their teams to the benefit of the whole business.” 

“We want our students to learn from those who actually lead successful ventures,” says Sandeep Krishnamurthy, director of the UW Bothell School of Business. “We strive to create not just great analysts, but leaders who can drive results. The partnership with Nintex will help us achieve this.” Mike Dusche, Corporate Leadership Liaison, UW Bothell School of Business, says, “Our MBA students are fortunate to have an opportunity to meet leaders who have achieved so much. Brett has inspired us by committing to support our efforts in leadership education.”

Nintex is a group of specialist information technology companies focused on Microsoft SharePoint technologies, including software products, services and cloud based solutions. As co-founder, Campbell brings more than twenty years of experience in the IT sector combined with strong retail background across a variety of responsibilities including finance, franchising and leasing. He now directs Nintex Global Sales and Alliances.

The Nintex Leadership Breakfast Series meets three times a quarter at City Hall in Bellevue, WA.
