On December 19th, Vlerick Business School hosts its Global Alumni Winter Reunion in Brussels. Leading up to this event in Belgium, some of our alumni chapters across the globe host their own Alumni Winter Reunion events.

The Vlerick chapter in the United States of America invites all Vlerick alumni living in the US to the Collibra offices in New York, for a reception with drinks and light food. 

At 7 PM we welcome Peter Vanham. Peter Vanham is Lead Writer and US Media Lead for the World Economic Forum, the international organization for public-private cooperation.

In his writing, he explores the world economy and the people that shape it, often reporting on emerging markets like China, Latin America or India, on the ground or from his base in New York. His articles appeared in media including Axios, Business Insider, CNBC, CNN, Financial Times, Forbes, Harvard Business Review, and Quartz. 

Peter is also author of “Before I Was CEO” (Wiley, 2017), a book on the life stories and lessons of multinational CEOs before they reached the top. The book features 20 global leaders, including the CEOs of Nestle, Heineken, and Tupperware, and was translated in Korean and Vietnamese. Peter will approach this topic in an informal way, while opening it up to the audience as well.

Peter received his M.Sc. in Commercial Engineering from the KU Leuven, and his M.A. in Business and Economics Journalism from Columbia University. Born and raised in Belgium, he now lives with his wife in New York.
