Alumni Forums: An exclusive MIT Sloan Alumni Club of Boston program
Description: It is our pleasure to announce to you the launch of the Alumni Forum Program at the MIT Sloan Alumni Club of Boston. Offered in conjunction with Alumni Forum Services, the Club’s exclusive Forum contractor, the Alumni Forum Program is a proven peer-group model for enriching the work, family and personal lives of its participants. Although offered through the MIT Sloan , participation in an Alumni Forum is open to all MIT alumni who are in a business or managerial position and would benefit from participation in a business school peer alumni peer form.
To learn more, please register for a special “Taste of Forum” on Tuesday, June 19 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Sloan School. At the Taste of Forum, you will be able to experience firsthand the power and value of the Forum experience. The session will be led by the co-founders of Alumni Forum Services, Mo Fathelbab, author of “Forum: The Secret Advantage of Successful Leaders” and Bob Halperin, former Chief Education Officer of Young Presidents Organization. If you can’t attend, reply here and we will send more information.
In order to participate in this program, alumni to complete a brief profile to join one of the Forums being created in June. Only alumni who complete the profile will be contacted with the next steps.
To support this initiative, the Club is offering a $100 subsidy for the Orientation fee for all MIT Sloan Club members who join in this initial round of Forum formation. Members of Young Presidents Organization (YPO), Entrepreneurs Organization, and Harvard Business School Alumni Clubs have experienced the power of Forum firsthand. They know that a Forum of peers can help them grow their businesses, make tough decisions, and build stronger relationships, personally and professionally.
"My Forum experience with other Sloan Fellows has made me both a better leader and a better person. The ability to share experiences and benefit from peers who have my interests in mind is invaluable. My forum experience has also substantially enhanced my business school alumni experience.” Jeff Behrens (Sloan Fellow 2007)
An Alumni Forum is composed of 8-12 MIT Sloan alumni, matched by criteria such as organization size and level of responsibility, who come together regularly for exchange and discussion. Topics and issues are as varied as the Forum’s members and may range from the effect of the economy on one’s business to the challenges of sudden success to finding a healthy work/life balance.
“Forum has helped me in business in many ways. It’s been a terrific resource for those hard multi-faceted decisions that involve money and markets but also people and reputation. Forum training has also given me an additional set of communication skills around listening and getting to the core of an issue inside the company and with customers and vendors.” John Macomber (YPO Member)
