Coffee Chat with Cassandra Chambers
Cassandra Chambers, Professor at the Department of Management & Technology at Bocconi, is the last guest of the ‘Coffee Chats’ series, a FT Talent and Bocconi initiative. Six meetings, informal chats, with Bocconi professors and alumni, who are leading managers and entrepreneurs, giving advice and personal insights for young talents.
In this interview with Virginia Stagni, Business Development Manager at Financial Times & FT Talent Director, Chambers talks about what it means to be a leader, how this changes when working in a virtual space, and her tips for building resilience and dealing with failure.
FT Talent teamed up with Bocconi in 2019 to organize the global competition FTxBocconi Challenge. The second edition last February saw 150 talents from all around the world compete online with ideas on reshaping the business world leveraging on human capital, sustainability, diversity and inclusion. Cassandra Chambers was among the guest speakers of the event.
