Alumni for Alumni - San Francisco Stories Event as iCalendar

04 May 2017


Join us to hear from Kiwi alumnus Ben Anderson, as he shares his story of how he founded a leading executive search and leadership advisory firm in Silicon Valley. He is a student of performance in leadership, and with his colleagues teaches a development model at MIT and Stanford Business School. Ben will discuss this method with the group.

San Francisco Stories is the first-ever event in our “Alumni for Alumni” series to hit California, where you can hear first-hand from fellow Auckland graduates on their career endeavours and aspirations. Come along and be inspired!

Light appetisers/Hors d’oeuvres and New Zealand wines will be served.
