Dear Hesselbein Global Academy Alumni –


If you cannot make it to Pittsburgh in person for the Hesselbein Global Academy 10 Year Celebration on July 20-24, 2018, do not worry – there are many ways to be involved from a distance!


Please see the options below for ways to get involved with the Hesselbein Global Academy alumni community:

  1. Be a featured alum at the 10 Year Celebration Dinner! Throughout the event, we will showcase Hesselbein alumni from all over the world.  To become a featured alum, just fill out this brief survey to tell us about your current occupation and upload a photo of yourself.
  1. Send us a brief video of yourself to be included in the commemorative 10 Year Hesselbein Global Academy Alumni video! Here are some guidelines for how to film and upload your video:
  • What kinds of videos are accepted?  Videos can be filmed on your mobile/cellular phone.  We recommend videos that are 2-3 minutes in length.
  • What are some tips for filming?  Choose a quiet place and make sure that the light is in front of you (for example, avoid sitting in front of a window).  Please speak as clearly as possible.
  • What should I say in my video?  We recommend that you start by saying your name, your home country, what year you attended Hesselbein (2009-2017), and your current occupation or area of study/work.  Also, we would love to hear your thoughts on the following questions:
    1. What impact did your participation in the Hesselbein Student Leadership Summit have for your leadership journey?
    2. What message do you want to share with young leaders?
    3. What message do you want to share with Frances Hesselbein?
    4. What is your favorite memory from the Summit?
  • How can I upload my video? UPLOAD YOUR VIDEO HERE
