Virtual Town Hall

On May 26th, John Chambers, founder and CEO of JC2 Ventures, joined the Center for a virtual Town Hall to discuss “Leading Through Crises.”

John Chambers Town HallThere are few great leaders in our world today who have had the breadth and depth of business experience as John Chambers, Chairman of Cisco, VC Investor, and author. In his prolific 20+ year career, John has led through 5 Financial, 5 Health Care, and 5 Supply Chain Crises.

John is well-known and appreciated for his commitment to mentorship to innovators worldwide. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how he is approaching his work and investments today, why mentorship is catalytic as a leader, when and how to ask for help, and when to listen to others. John will share his playbook on how to not just survive, but how to “connect the dots” in ways you may not see today.

This interactive town hall session was hosted by Jeff Thomas of Nasdaq, SVP, Head of Western US Listings & Capital Markets.

Topics we explore include:

  • Leading through seismic challenges
  • Planing for the short-term while building for the long-term
  • Seeing opportunity, especially in times of adversity
