This fall, the Darden community gathered in London for a series of events that included the Thinkers50 Distinguished Achievement Awards, where Professors Jeanne Liedtka and Mary Gentile were nominated for awards and Professor Bobby Parmar led a panel. Darden’s Armstrong Center for Alumni Career Services (ACS) also held London office hours to provide coaching services, led by ACS Executive Director Jen Coleman.

An alumni reception with a spectacular view rounded out the London itinerary, thanks to Littleton Glover (MBA ‘00) who opened the doors of the River Court Offices of Goldman Sachs, which hosted the event. Goldman Sachs also generously sponsored the reception that brought together Darden alumni, senior staff and faculty members. The event was a wonderful example of the Darden network’s international presence and engagement with the School.
