Tonight, for the first time Simonites from Greek/Romania, India and France, all resident in London shared a number Gin Tonics (and a Diet Coke) in The Folly with a Simonite from Switzerland. Meeting up was a great experience. At the heart of it, we found, we share the same concerns and ambitions. The ambition to progress in career and make good use of the network of Alumni is a shared value despite distance and residency. Also, we found shared concerns about the ever deteroiating ranking of the Simon business school in Business Week and Financial Times rankings. The next get together shall take place before the end of the summer, in the month of August. We are looking forward to connect again with Rochester alumni from all over Europe in The City.
