2019 Latin American Conference

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 8:30am to 5:30pm

Klarman Hall Boston, MA 02163 Soldiers Field Rd, Boston, MA 02163

Transforming Latin America: creating, managing and investing in change

We are thrilled to continue the tradition of inviting speakers from diverse fields and backgrounds with inspiring success stories and demonstrated leadership.  Past Latin American Conferences consistently feature a group of successful government officials, business leaders, actors, actresses, entrepreneurs, social leaders and faculty members that, like us, share a deep commitment to fostering social and economic growth in the region.

This event will provide the attendees a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges of doing business in Latin America as well as the opportunities and challenges of being a successful Latin American abroad. We expect that the conference will inform and inspire students and professionals, while positioning Latin America as an area of interest for academic, political, artistic and professional communities.
