A Wall Street Tale

From Silicon Valley to Suzhou, from Stanford University to Dulwich International High School, Mr. Jeffrey D. Brown, Wall Street Executive and Stanford University lecturer, has spoken to students on the 26th of September.

We were very pleased to welcome Mr. Jeffrey Brown to Dulwich International High School Suzhou. Mr. Brown spoke about his experiences as a student at Harvard, where he completed his undergraduate studies, and later, an MBA from Harvard Business School. He then went on to work at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch. Mr. Brown is currently working on a project which aims to help protect the jungles of Borneo.

Mr. Brown’s enthusiasm for Finance was infectious and many students asked questions related to bonds, infrastructure investment and insurance. The session highlighted the importance of certain skills and traits that employers look for in an increasingly competitive job market. Mr. Brown encouraged students to focus on their projects, developing interpersonal and tackling complex tasks, all of which are skills sought after by employers.

Our students actively engaged in the question and answer session at the end of the talk and Mr. Brown was very kind to stay back for over an hour to speak to our students in small groups.
