Wharton Dean Listened, Ready to Share
- by Matthew Brodsky
The Global Conversations Tour left attendees wondering what would happen next. At each of the 13 stops, Dean Geoffrey Garrett took the stage with a Wharton grad or two (sometimes three). Sometimes, these alumni asked the questions. Other times, the dean did the interviewing. Often, what transpired was an off-the-cuff back-and-forth among business leaders wise to the current ways of the world.
In all its formats, the live event series was part of Garrett’s mission to embrace Wharton alumni around the globe, all while outlining his core priorities and vision for the School.
Watch the video below to get a sense for what the tour was like … and for what is next.
To cap off the 13-city live tour, Garrett is meeting virtually with alumni and students from around the world in a live, interactive webinar. Moderated by Wharton students—sophomore Dylan Adelman and second-year MBA Andra Ofosu—the webinar will feature Garrett sharing what he learned during the Global Conversations Tour, as well as engage in dialogue with attendees.
The event takes place tomorrow, Feb. 3, at two times—8 a.m. and noon. Register for your choice now on the Wharton Alumni Relations site.
