LinKSlabs@Wharton G2 – 14-19 September, 2014 – A Splendid Success
LinKS@Wharton G2 top executive programme 2014 has just taken place last week and brought together Scandinavian C-suite executives and board members from public, private, and political sectors. A five day top executive program held in Washington DC and at the Wharton School of Philadelphia. The program’s main themes were governance and strategy, challenging governance, and creating dynamic strategies.
During the first day of LinKS@Wharton, our group of participants visited the Danish Embassy in Washington D.C., where they were greeted by Ambassador Peter Taksøe-Jensen. Our honorary guest of the Washington day was Secretary Cohen, who led a Q&A session on current events around the world. He tackled issues such as Syria, Ukraine, Iran and the upcoming elections, bringing insights from Washington’s perspective.
The following 4 days were spent at The Wharton School of Philadelphia. Amongst the very inspiring professors that we had the pleasure of learning from in Philadelphia, we should mention: Jerry Wind, Mauro Guillen, Mike Useem, Paul Shoemaker, Tom Donaldson, Barry Libert, David Bell, David Robertson, and Jeremy Rifkin. Apart from providing insights from world-leading professors and thinkers, the program facilitated networking and challenging of the mental models across the different sectors represented.
