Leadership means change and change demands leadership. Never have we had the need for skillful change leaders as we do now. Being one requires alertness, openness, flexibility, persistence and, frankly, guts. Many of the changes we are witnessing today would have been unthinkable just a year ago. Is change so - mething you thrive with? Or does it scare you? Change is not popular; most often it comes as a surprise, out of the blue and without warning. And worse still - we do not have control over it. For the 2nd HSG Alumni USA Conference we have been able to commit outstanding personalities who each have been in the eye of this change cyclone. They are leaders in business, politics, journalism, academia and diplomacy. Each of them will share their views and experiences with us. The conference will take place in an informal setting with ample opportunity to get to know each other, discuss the topic and ask questions. These are unique times. Times that pose challenging risks but also provide unprecedented opportunities. Either we are pushed about by the external forces of change and find ourselves taking a backseat or we rise to the challenges harnessing it and reinvent ourselves and our businesses to become leaders. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from others’ experiences, have fruitful discussions and get inspired - right in the heart of New York City. We are also opening this year’s event to the members of the New York City Swiss American Chamber of Commerce. This means even more networking and more opportunities for exchange of ideas. Please register today - your HSG friends and the Big Apple are waiting for you!
