Are you interested in networking with professionals and enhancing your skills in the corporate world?


Join us for our second discussion and hear from two leaders in the corporate and academic world:

He also advises clients on critical disclosure and financial reporting matters, an area on which he has authored several publications.


Martin Gelter, expert in comparative corporate law and governance, joined the faculty of Fordham Law School in 2009.

Among other degrees, Martin holds an S.J.D. from Harvard Law School and an M.A. in Quantitative Methods for the Social Sciences from Columbia University.


As experts in corporate governance, Harald and Martin will speak on the importance of responsible corporate management and best practices in the field. They will share their professional experiences in the business and academic world and facilitate a conversation on this important topic that impacts all of us consumers, professionals, and global citizens. There will also be an opportunity for networking with the speakers and other attendees, as well as refreshments.
