Alumni Affinity Groups

First meetings for Affinity Groups

For the first time, the RSM Leadership Summit added a morning programme to its schedule when the School’s newly-formed and industry-specific Alumni Affinity Groups held their first face-to-face meetings, which attracted high praise from attendees.

The Affinity Group for Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship, also meeting for the first time, organised five short presentations from two of its alumni and three of its ‘best and brightest professors’ with five strategic entrepreneurship views of the Summit’s theme, value creation.

The Affinity Group for Sustainability was attended by RSM alumni now working in a range of disciplines whose roles are connected by the theme of ‘sustainability’. Their inaugural meeting inspired a sense of collaboration and possibility, it was reported. RSM’s new Executive Fellow of Business and Ecosystems Willem Ferwerda presented a view of the world’s biodynamic systems before the group discussed the potential for future collaboration.

The Alumni Affinity Group for Energy met to discuss their agenda for subsequent meetings in 2013.
