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.
