New York Networking and Guest Speaker event 

Wednesday 14 September 2016

Despite an unfortunately-timed thunderstorm, a group of New York area alumni got together on Wednesday evening for a local networking and guest speaker event.

The event was hosted by University of Sheffield in America Board member, Chris Cheetham and his wife Gemma Hart, at the Park Avenue Head Quarters of Anheuser Busch International Beverage.

Guests enjoyed appetizers and a broad selection of international beers, courtesy of our hosts, then welcomed guest speaker Professor Tony Ryan, who spoke about his research at the Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures at the University of Sheffield. We were very fortunate to be able to invite Professor Ryan, who has been undertaking a visiting professorship at Cornell University this summer, and the group enjoyed a lively and informative question and answer session with him.

We would like to thank everyone involved, not least Professor Ryan, Chris Cheetham, Gemma Hart and our generous hosts at Anheuser Busch. Thank you!
