December 20, 2017

Join us for our January 2018 Fuqua Faculty Conversation as Sanyin Siang ’96, MBA ’03, Executive Director of Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership & Ethics, presents:

Sanyin SiangThe Launch Mindset

Self-doubt, fear of failure, lack of time are some of the major obstacles to launching your next idea, business, or career. Successful launches have as much to do with mindset as they do with talent or skill set.

In this talk, Sanyin Siang draws on insights from her new book – The Launch Book- and gives you some ideas and actionable tips for taking the next step forward. From Tribe building to Next Play, Sanyin also draws on her experiences working with serial launchers such as being an Advisor to GV (formerly Google Ventures) and Sports Innovation Lab.
