“[Gordon-Conwell] has given me a more solid foundation with which to approach the people who I lead and collaborate with, and the systems, processes and initiatives we seek to improve upon. I have continued the dialog with my classmates and a few of the industry professionals who we connected with along the way, [which has been] extremely helpful to my profession.”
