Leader Connections Executive Forums
These evening events offer an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of a leader who shares, inspires and gives-back. It's an opportunity for our members - leaders and emerging leaders - to connect with similar-minded C-level professionals after work. Our members include Chairmen, C-level professionals, President and Vice Presidents of public and private and companies within a wide range of industries, including old and new media, retail, information services, manufacturing, executive recruiting, financial service firms, and sales and marketing. The Forums are held in mid-town NYC.
See clips of previous Executive Forums with leaders from companies like Verizon, Virgin, Marvel and Platts. Click here for details on "The Investment Summit" for the President of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili.
Join us and other business leaders at Leader Connections Executive Forum featuring the Vice Chancellor of Global Affairs for the State University of New York (SUNY), Dr. Mitch Leventhal.
A "serial entrepreneur," Dr. Leventhal may seem to be an unlikely choice to head global affairs at the largest comprehensive university system in the world. But appearances can be deceiving.
Dr. Leventhal's career, up until 2005, focused on many industry verticals, including shipping, chemicals, finance, insurance, information technology, and technology transfer. He is widely recognized as a leader in global markets for higher education, enterprise-wide data systems, consortium-based initiatives, and public-private partnerships.
SUNY offers 64 unique campuses for every type of student, every stage of life, and every kind of passion. The largest university system in the world, it enrolls nearly a half million students annually. Its Office of Global Affairs coordinates strategy, oversees international agreements, manages governmental relations, and creates programs to benefit students, faculty and the business community. It is positioning higher education as a leading export earner in an era where exports of durable goods radically declined.
Dr. Leventhal served as vice provost for international affairs at the University of Cincinnati, with responsibilities for global strategy, institutional collaboration, international recruitment, and curricular internationalization. Previous positions include founder and president of the Microstate Corporation, founding CEO of the Intellectual Property Technology Exchange (a spinoff from Yale University), and co-founder and vice president for strategic initiatives at Planet Payment, Inc., a multi-currency payment processing company (LSX:PPT).
Dr. Leventhal is a founder of the American International Recruitment Council (AIRC), a Senior Advisor on Academic Affairs to the United Nations Global Compact and sits on numerous other commissions and boards, including those of two Confucius Institutes. He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Chicago.
In his presentation, Dr. Leventhal will discuss global entrepreneurship, and will focus on how it can be relevant to organizations of all sizes and non-profits.
