Giovanni Giordano Speaks to Columbia Students

Thank you, Giovanni Giordano, for coming to Columbia University from London to talk to our Masters class on
Leading Cross Cultural Global Organizations.  Giovanni spoke compellingly about his experiences as a global
CHRO and HR leader for BAT, Ferrero, and Procter and Gamble.  Leading in a global environment, he said,
requires the same focus on the company’s strategic objectives as it does in a domestic business.  However sometimes,
domestic agendas don’t always translate well internationally.  He gave a number of examples of solving complex HR
problems in Asia, Europe, and the Middle-East.  His 40-minute talk, lasted 2 HOURS with never-ending questions
from the students.  So glad to have Giovanni share his expertise with the class.
