The Business of the Yankees: Insights from Hal Steinbrenner

Thursday, September 20
6:00 pm reception, 7:00 pm program
$10 for members, $20 for guests/non-members

Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera may be gone but a new generation of stars has again made the Yankees one of the hottest tickets in town.  From exhilarating wins to crushing losses, Yankees fans live and die with the product on the field – but owning and running the Yankees is not so simple.  Far from fantasy baseball, the Yankees are big business.   So it’s with great pleasure that we’ll hear from Hal Steinbrenner, Williams ’91, the managing general partner and co-chairman of the New York Yankees, as he opines on the complexities of running one of sports’ most significant franchises – from roster construction to stadium and media economics.  Please join us for an exceptional evening with this second generation Williams grad to learn about The Business of the Yankees.

This program will be conducted interview-style, with interlocutor, Tom Morgan, Williams ’91, Head of Strategic Capital at Magnetar Capital & Williams Club board member.

 

The College Application Process & Getting into Top Colleges

Tuesday, September 25
Free to attend

What does the college application process look like today?  What do top colleges look for?  How can my child build the best foundation for college admission?

Paisley Kang, Williams ’12, director of Awaken Education, a New-York based college consulting and test prep firm, will provide perspective on what the college application process looks like today.  She will review the long- and shorter-term steps families can take, starting well before junior or senior year, to optimize chance of admission to top colleges.  This seminar is open to parents and students of any age in high school, middle school, or elementary school.

A former public school teacher, Paisley aims to bring pedagogy into the test prep and tutoring landscape, in which the art of teaching and thoughtful curriculum planning is often overlooked. Her team has helped students from New York, New Jersey, Westchester, Long Island, Boston, and Seoul gain admission to top colleges like Princeton, Swarthmore, and Duke.  She is Williams ’12 and received her M.A. from Teachers College,  Columbia University. 

 

Infrastructure Redefined: Digital Transformation in Real Estate

4th in a continuing series
Monday, November 26
6:30 pm reception, 7:00 program
Free for members, $10 for guests

The real estate industry is not typically viewed as a leader in technological transformation.  However, the emerging field known as “PropTech” – which seeks to offer innovative tech-based products, models, and applications for real estate markets – is rapidly redefining the industry, and benefitted from $12 billion in venture investment in 2017 alone.  Today, digitization is impacting an industry naturally characterized by brick and mortar in a multitude of ways.  This panel will discuss the effect of these developments on different aspects of the industry, and ask: how is technology changing what we know about a space, and how we use it?  How are computing as well as other technologies affecting decision making, investment criteria, use of office space, construction, ability to scale?

Moderator, Katrin Zimmermann, Managing Director, The Americas, TLGG
Panelists to be announced by Oct 1.
