Our new podcast
Not everything we learn as we’re assembling the Bulletin makes it into print. Our alumni interview subjects often have more to say—additional perspectives or personal observations that deserve to be heard but just don’t fit on the page. Our new alumni podcast series, Skydeck, will be the place for that. Beginning this month, we will give listeners deeper insights into their fellow alumni—not just their careers, but how they live their lives. Our inaugural episodes feature one-on-one conversations with three alumni featured in this issue: A talk with Clay Christensen about how his business theory has affected his home life, Jennifer Raiser on the business of Burning Man, and Bill Tai on his accidental ascent to kiteboarding entreprenuer. You can subscribe to Skydeck or listen at alumni.hbs.edu/podcast. And be sure to let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Re: Alumni Achievement Awards
Alan [Horn (MBA 1971)], what a great success story. It certainly isn’t a surprise; you showed great leadership ability while we were in school.

It is not often that one can actually improve the quality of life for those in need. But SecondBite does that and more. Well done, Ian.

Re: Peter Cummings (OPM 13, 1988)
[I’m] so happy to read of these efforts to move Detroit forward. Having grown up and gone to college in northwest Ohio, Detroit was a magnet for us. I want to see it thrive.

Detroit needs people like Peter Cummings to inject new blood into the city. I would be glad to help with this project.
