Statewide, exempt employees and/or those who have supervisory responsibilities are welcome to register for this conference to be held in Knoxville at the Crowne Plaza downtown. The day will consist of facilitated small-group sessions, an Executive Leadership Panel, and large group discussion.

The concept of the “best man” has its origin in medieval Germany when the best man was identified as that trusted individual who had your back, supported you, who would go to battle with you and for you. The BEST Man Forum is designed to connect and meet the needs of the UT men that serve our campuses and institutes. The forum serves as a catalyst to unite UT men system-wide, to learn, network, and contribute to embodiment of the Be One UT Values in performance, behaviors, and relationships.


Internal Price: $200

External (non-UT staff) Price: $300

Location: Crowne Plaza Knoxville Downtown
