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.

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.
