“Refreshing way to learn from conversations with professors, practitioners and amongst ourselves. Highly recommended.”

Dan Li, Associate Professor and Assistant Dean, School of Economics, Fudan University (China)

 

 

“I felt that the material covered was relevant and easily crossed borders. The format was the best I have encountered...the relatively free-flowing conversations were, to me, the highlights of the course.”

 

Ed Sheehy, President, Southeast Toyota Distributors (USA)

 

 

“A good week of thinking through new concepts and occasionally, different paradigms.

It was a useful investment of time."

 

Peter Lim, General Manager – Legal & Corporate Affairs, Caltex Australia Group (Australia)

 

 

“I thoroughly enjoyed 20 Conversations. The mix of faculty members, topics and fellow delegates in an informal setting was an excellent way to connect and discuss the concepts tabled. Overall the program gets a huge endorsement from me.” 

 

David Farr, COO, Commonwealth Bank Australia (Australia)

 

 

’I am most impressed with the discipline of structuring 20 conversations around relevant and important topics in 5 days. It enables rapid learning and reinforcement of shared experience.

Congratulations and thank you!
