Congratulations to NYIT Class in Multinational Business Management!
Students in the class followed the Global Leadership Program outline to create a US market entry strategy for Cascade’s Aqua Gratis product (https://lnkd.in/eZW3pMvU). They did a terrific job in the class and made their final presentation to Carolyn Hogg, Managing Director, and Robert Parry-Jones, Executive Consultant.
Ten students from China and the US worked on the project and completed the assignment in two weeks…. All received top grades and will certainly go on to leadership positions in global business.
Thank you Shelie Gustafson, Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer of Jacobs for taking the time and making the effort to talk to our class on Leading Cross Cultural Global Organizations. Jacobs is a Fortune 250 multidisciplinary engineering firm (https://www.jacobs.com/) delivering impactful global solutions from intelligence to infrastructure, space and cybersecurity.
Shelie’s advice and counsel stood out as she talked about employee engagement, strategic objectives, and global business. She talked about the finer points of engaging with employees through group discussions and individual talk sessions. Her advice and suggestions made a big difference to the business and HR professionals in the class. Thank you, Shelie!
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.

Dr. Walsh stepped onboard the Blue Origin space capsule for a simulated trip into space thanks to Jeff Bezos. The capsule was featured at the Explorers Club
annual dinner in New York City. Images show the capsule as it appears on the launchpad; Dr. Walsh entering the capsule; the view from inside the capsule looking toward the adjacent passenger;
the individual electronic monitors showing the capsule nearing touchdown. Dr. Walsh reports that you don’t need to bring your purse (nothing to buy!), and she does not recommend high
heels and long gowns-too difficult to gracefully get into the reclining seats!
