Lcg consulting summit
An Annual conference aimed to foster networking between lehigh Students, Alumni, and professionals in order to inspire and empower young leaders
Inaugurated in the Fall of 2017, the LCG Consulting Summit started off as the offspring of the idea to expand LCG's outreach in the Lehigh University campus. Some of the goals that sprouted from this idea were to host a large consulting-focused networking event and to reach out to more students outside of the College of Business and Economics and expose them to opportunities in consulting that they can pursue.
2017 Inaugural LCG Consulting Summit
The Inaugural Fall 2017 LCG Consulting Summit successfully accomplished both of these goals. With an attendance of nearly 150 students, professors, alumni, and professionals, the Summit hosted company information sessions, for both IBM and PwC, in addition to consulting panelist sessions that encompassed experiences from both large consulting firms and small, entrepreneurial consulting firms. The keynote speaker for the event was Jennifer L. Mann, a Lehigh Alumna, a former Democratic member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives for the 132nd District, and a founder and president of her own consulting firm, JL Mann Consulting, LLC. She spoke extensively about both her professional experiences and her networking skills and how professionals, both prospective and current, can utilize networking and communication to further develop their success in whatever profession they desire. The event finished off with lunch served alongside an open and interactive networking hour, where attendees could touch base with old contacts and even meet new ones.
