Fireside Chat with Howard Behar | September 30

| September 16, 2021 (LIVE)
Submitted by Emily Cestra for Student Experience

Global Student Voice is a student community focused on personal development and the collective issues of students and the planet. Each session, individuals hear from leading thinkers, give feedback and influence policy decisions where relevant. The organization is delighted to have Howard Behar for their next event.

Howard was kind of a big deal at Starbucks. He joined when they were 28 stores young. 21 years later, after progressing to President of North America and International, they had experienced some growth, it’s fair to say (15,000 stores, over 5 continents). But Howard’s story isn’t one of growth at all costs and by any means, it’s people over profit and a style of leadership – and indeed life – that focuses on serving others, not serving oneself. In our time of COVID-19, many of us are looking for purpose and meaning in our work and lives. Howard has been living it for decades, and he calls it Servant Leadership. He’s written books and trained CEOs, so Global Student Voice is delighted he’s coming to speak.

What you need to know:

  • Only open to undergraduate students who are 24 years old or younger
  • Session will be repeated twice (attend the one that fits best with your schedule)
