Contentive’s mission is to build a community of senior HR people leaders and provide them with learning and growth opportunities, pairing well with Columbia Business School Executive Education’s mission, to provide today’s business executives with tangible learning, that they can apply immediately and in the long term to successfully meet the challenges of their organization.

The Leadership Jazz event, taking place on October 30, 2018 at the Kitano Hotel in New York City, is an experiential learning exercise — one of many that are integrated into the Executive Education programs offered by Columbia Business School — during which executives will explore leadership and management techniques through the improvisational world of jazz. As the first in the series of planned roadshows, aimed at engaging senior people leaders across every industry vertical, it will offer Chief People Officers, Chief Learning Officers & HR Leaders a unique opportunity to experience the learning that they can disseminate across their talent bench and to engage with their peers in an exclusive and stimulating setting.

Guided by Paul Ingram, Kravis Professor of Business at Columbia Business School and Chris Washburne, Associate Professor of Ethnomusicology at Columbia University, top musicians will not only display their musical talent but also share their insights on such topics as collaboration and the importance of listening, and answer questions from participants. What emerges will be a valuable discussion of the dynamics of individual excellence and constructive teamwork.


Capacity is limited so please register at your earliest convenience. Download the full flyer here.


The Leadership Jazz evening in October offers a preview of what is to come in Boston in March 2019, when the HRD Summit’s winning formula of innovative session formats, such as the tried and tested lightning talks, fireside chats and CoLabs, brings fresh ideas to the North American market.


*Please note, this Jazz evening is specifically for Chief People Officers, Chief Learning Officers & HR Leaders. The event organizers may reject your registration if you do not fulfill this criteria.
