We're dedicated to making warm connections that lead to business.
Sometimes those connections are a little unusual, but they are value-adding none-the-less.
Our San Francisco chapter of Global Chamber® has been active in creating valuable business-to-student interactions that have created connections within the global tribe.
One example is the recent 2nd Annual International Student Symposium held this summer at Sofia University in Palo Alto, California. The event was inspiring, open, insightful and fun with attendees representing a multitude of nationalities ranging from USA, Canada, China, Singapore, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Nicaragua and Saudi Arabia.
Attendees gained valuable insights on the global talent marketplace trends, opportunities, and related best practices from an excellent HR and recruiter panel, moderated by GCSF Board of Advisors member Dorien Woudenberg (Randstad), to include Alex Mentele (Tesla), Rona Petroni (Bank of the West), and Linda Spencer (Randstad).

Special thanks to Sanjit Singh Dangh (Intel Capital), MK Li (UpHonest Capital), Olina Qian (SVACE), Fyodor Ovchinnikov (IEL), and Andrew Wasserman (STRIVR) for speaking at and providing attendees with timely guidance, advice and important lessons learned.
We're dedicated to creating and sharing new opportunities for executives seeking grow to find and capture.
