CEIBS UK Alumni Reunion

November 4, 2017. Cambridge –  CEIBS UK-based alumni had the opportunity to meet new contacts and share business and life knowledge during a reunion organized by the CEIBS UK Alumni Chapter and held today in Cambridge.

A highlight of the event was a talk on “Why Leadership has Meaning” that was given by former CEIBS faculty member Dr. David De Cremer, who is a co-author of the book Huawei: Leadership, Culture and Connectivity.  In his talk, Dr. De Cremer highlighted the importance of leadership style in a global business environment and shared insights on the Huawei leadership technique which combines Eastern and Western leadership styles.

“The speech was very interactive and inspiring,” said Sharon Cheng (EMBA 2005). “We all really enjoyed the day in Cambridge and hope to meet up again soon as the UK CEIBS chapter increases activities here.”

Reunion participants also enjoyed a tour of Cambridge in which they learned about its history and were able to discover some of the similarities between the UK and China.  Cambridge is renowned for being the home to some of the UK’s leading universities.

The CEIBS UK Alumni Chapter welcomes all alumni who work or live in the UK, and aims to provide a communication and support network for members.
