The Harvard Business School Club of Houston invites the Wharton Club of Houston to participate in its virtual career coaching event with Bruce Peterson of Korn Ferry.


Career Management from An Executive Recruiter’s Perspective

Please join the HBS Club of Houston Career Coaching SIG on Tuesday, September 29th from 5:00 - 6:00 PM as we welcome Bruce Peterson, Senior Client Partner in the Houston office of Korn Ferry International. For the fourth consecutive year, Korn Ferry  has been recognized in Forbes Magazine as America’s best executive recruiting firm. 

In this facilitated Q&A session, Bruce will give us his insights on the status of the energy industry globally and in Houston.  He will de-mystify the executive recruiting process generally, and field our most pressing questions  – whether we are currently in transition or interested in understanding the executive recruiting process to support our career management.

You will benefit from this virtual session if you are:

  • a  leader interested in continuing to build you career in the energy sector;
  • in transition and interested in exploring opportunities in a different industry;
  • an investor seeking a leader to help in the restructuring of a portfolio company;
  • putting together a new executive team as a result of a merger, combination, or restructuring; and/or
  • interested in understanding the executive recruiting process and its role in your career management and networking strategy.

The session will be an interactive Q&A format. Please email your questions in advance to Lisa Walsh, Chair of the Club’s Career Coaching SIG, at [email protected]
