Event Report - Shanghai Chapter: We Read For You

KU Leuven and Vlerick Alumni hold successful ‘we read for you’ event in Shanghai with Prof. Dr. Dirk Buyens

Ever read a management book in 30 minutes in good company with beer and Belgian food in Shanghai? We did

On November 16 2016 the KU Leuven Alumni and Vlerick Alumni Shanghai Chapters jointly organized their first ‘we read for you’ event. Prof. Dr. Dirk Buyens, Professor of Human Resources Management and Director Open Exec Education at Vlerick Business School, led an academically driven discussion around Adam Grant’s inspiring and revolutionary book ‘Give and Take’. He passionately discussed with the audience why our interactions with others hold the key to success.

After the inspiring book discussion alumni mingled and enjoyed the dinner reception with an extensive selection of Belgian beers. More than 60 alumni attended the event at Shanghai’s Kaiba bar, making it yet another successful event!

We were very honoured with the visit of Professor Buyens and we would like to thank him for reading and discussing this inspiring book with us! Special thanks go out to our sponsors AkzoNobel and De Wolf Law Firm for making this event possible. We also would like to thank our fellow KU Leuven and Vlerick alumni and friends for making this event a great success, and hope to see you all again at our next events!

The KU Leuven Alumni and Vlerick Alumni Shanghai Team.
