The event, which is sponsored by the nationally recognized CPA and advisory firm of Frazier & Deeter, will take place at noon at the Nashville City Club, located at 201 4th Ave. N. in Nashville.

Tatum is a recognized expert on capital markets and entrepreneurial companies, having testified before Congress on issues faced by growing companies. His ideas on small business growth have been cited by leading news media, including Inc., Financial Times, The New York Times and MSNBC.

As chairman and CEO of Tatum LLC for more than 17 years, Tatum grew the company to the largest executive-services consulting firm in the United States with more than 1,000 employees and professionals in 30 offices. He later served on the firm’s board and as chairman emeritus until the company merged with Spherion Corp. in early 2010.

In 2011, Tatum was tapped to head concentrated research for the Institute for Exceptional Growth Companies to investigate the performance of exceptional growth companies through economic cycles and how they contribute to job creation and economic prosperity.

He teaches in the Department of Business and Entrepreneurship in MTSU’s Jennings A. Jones College of Business.
