    That was fun! Thank you to our hosts Tiffany & Bosco, to ALL our speakers and to everyone who attended the Global Chamber® event last night.

    Below... Dean Sanjeev Khagram is shown with all the Thunderbird students and graduates present. Dr. Khagram gave a stirring introductory keynote about Thunderbird, the opportunities, and listening to the global tribe in developing his next steps. The school is looking for more great students, too.

    Also below... May Lu of Tiffany & Bosco kicks things off! The theme of the event was supporting companies that are going global as they land, and those already landed, too.
