During the past several days, one thought leader had a book published in Chinese while another was named editor of an academic journal.
Read on to see what else our thought leaders have been up to:
Celebrating the Graduates of Cultivate Small Business
Babson, Santander Bank, CommonWealth Kitchen and the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City celebrated the graduates of the second cohort of Cultivate Small Business on April 23, led by Vice Provost of Global Entrepreneurial Leadership Candida Brush.
