Virtual Taste of Forum: Navigate Life Issues with Trusted HBS Peers

Mon, 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM Zoom Meeting (Information to be sent to Registrants)
Alumni OnlyOther


At this fragile and uncertain time in the world, we may question our competence, priorities, or decisions. We need a place where we can take off our masks (at least figuratively), be vulnerable, and discuss what really matters.

For the last eleven years, HBS Club of NY Alumni Forums have offered members that kind of safe port in a stormy world. Current forum members appreciate their monthly meetings now more than ever, and this special program invites all greater New York-area alumni to a “pop-up” one-time, virtual forum meeting on Monday, Dec 12. from 6:00PM – 7:00PM.

In this session, you will learn key forum principles and participate in a Zoom breakout forum meeting with a small group of fellow alumni. All conversations will be governed by forum principles of confidentiality, no judgment, and a willingness to share challenges openly so all may benefit. This is a complimentary event for all NY alumni.

Inspired by similar programs at Young Presidents Organization and Entrepreneurs Organization, hundreds of HBS alumni have participated in HBS alumni forums since 2009. These small peer groups offer each member a personal “board of directors” to help guide you through difficult decisions, grow your business, and build stronger relationships.
