Event details:"Before I Was CEO"A One-on-one conversation and book discussion with two I-House alumni on journalism, writing, and how to become CEO

Date: Wednesday, November 15th

Time: 7pm-9pm

Location: International House Home Room

Join I-House alumni Santiago Wills (Colombia, '12) and Peter Vanham (Belgium, '13) for a fireside chat on careers in journalism and writing, and the untold stories from "Before I Was CEO", Peter's recently published book on the lessons of leaders before they reached the top.

Santiago Wills is a freelance journalist from Colombia and Columbia, whose work appeared in Vice, Slate, The Atlantic and many leading Latin American magazines. He recently returned to New York from Bogota to become a Fulbright fellow.

Peter Vanham is US Media lead for the World Economic Forum in New York, and author of "Before I Was CEO", a book on the lessons of leaders before they reached the top, including Nestle, Bain, Heineken, American Red Cross and Wharton.

Santiago and Peter studied journalism at Columbia Journalism School and lived in International House together. As their writing paths have taken them in different directions, they now reconvene their lessons learned and discuss the findings of Peter's book on careers and leadership.

This session is open to all residents and alumni, especially those who are contemplating which course to take in their life after I-House.

*The first 30 guests will receivea copy of "Before I Was CEO"
