The Kellogg Alumni Club of London caters to its diverse alumni community by hosting a variety of activities ranging from networking and professional development opportunities to presentations by faculty and industry experts.

To celebrate the launch of the club’s Women’s Chapter last summer, long-standing Global Head of Sovereign Wealth Fund Coverage at Royal Bank of Scotland Group Rebecca Manuel ’89 and Senior Vice President at Wells Fargo Hélène Alunni-Botteri ’00 shared their leadership experiences at a Kellogg Women’s Networking Event. Following in the footsteps of that highly successful event, the club, in partnership with INSEAD, co-hosted an alumnae panel with Deborah Fuhr ’89, managing partner at ETFGI, and Kerstin Mogull ’87, director of strategy and business growth at Clear Channel International. Both alumnae shared their work experiences and offered advice on effective networking and career development.

Continuing to showcase Kellogg’s accomplished alumni in 2014, the club hosted Kai Hammerich ’84, co-author of the book, “Fish Can’t See Water: How National Cultures Can Make or Break Your Corporate Strategy.” More than 60 Kellogg alumni and friends gathered to hear Hammerich discuss how national culture, through its influence on corporate culture, has a powerful but often invisible impact on the success of global companies. BusinessWeek recently named Hammerich one of the most influential headhunters globally.
