PATCHOGUE, N.Y. – October 4, 2016 – St. Joseph’s College (SJC) was selected by BDO International (BDO) to conduct a workshop on emotional intelligence last week in Dallas, Texas. 

After submitting a proposal, Kathryn Frost, Ph.D., professor of psychology at SJC Long Island, was chosen to provide a three-hour workshop to emerging leaders at BDO, specifically persons hired for their consulting expertise who have been identified as having potential leadership skills that the company would like to cultivate.

“SJC is always working to create new partnerships with businesses, both locally and nationally,” said Gail Lamberta, Ph.D., associate dean for community development; professor and chair of the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies; and coordinator of experiential learning at SJC. “Dr. Frost’s latest workshop was the result of a great proposal from our Department of Continuing Education that led to a successful partnership with a national company. These partnerships are a great benefit to all SJC students.” 

The workshop focused on the role of emotional intelligence as a key component of effective company leadership and was held at the Hilton Anatole Hotel. 

BDO is an international consulting firm of approximately 6,000 employees providing accounting, consulting and litigation services to a wide range of companies.
