Leadership during Conflict w/ General David Petraeus & Dr Andrew Lo
May 01 - Virtual Event

Join General David H. Petraeus and Dr. Andrew Lo in a fireside chat as they discuss "Leadership during Conflict" in the context of deteriorating international relations, political pressures, and recession fears. The event will focus on the challenges that leaders face in navigating tough times and guiding their organizations to great outcomes. The conversation will explore the role of leadership in crisis management and conflict resolution, drawing on the extensive experience of General Petraeus in the military and as Director of the CIA, and the expertise of Dr. Lo in finance and healthcare finance.

The fireside chat will take place online with Q&A in the last 20 minutes.
