Welcome dean Scott Beardsley (April 7)
Guess who has a new business card 
Get your interns before they're gone

The dean is making his first trip to Chicago and looking forward to meeting me.  OK, he is looking forward to meeting you too (just making sure you're still reading these newsletters), details below.  Also, a ton of us changed companies and received promotions.  See all the movin' and shakin' going on.  Plus, I've received calls and emails from FYs looking for Chicago internship opportunities - Can one help your company?  And finally, it's official - D'87 Raymond Lambert has something special for us.  The dean bumped our planned event but we'll get together again in a couple months for an interesting and entertaining discussion about his most unlikely career.

HELP NEEDED - Darden Chicago is looking for the next chapter leader to take charge and lead-on !  We need help with event ideas and planning, specifically if you have something to share (e.g. D'87 Raymond Lambert) or space to host an event - thanks again Googan for inviting us to the Racquet Club of Chicago - at your office or social club for a presentation or home for a BBQ (we can collect funds if needed). Please email with ideas or ability to help.
COMING SOON : Raymond Lambert
Would you leave your successful Investment Banking career to launch a startup in an industry you have no experience?  What if your startup helped the early careers of comedian Chris Rock, Oscar winner Jamie Foxx, the tv/radio host of everything Steve Harvey, the late Bernie Mac, the great Dave Chappelle, and dozens more...  Then a documentary was made about you that earned great acclaim.  Then you become a producer and your latest movie about Maya Angelou was just selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.  Sounds crazy but taking that risk is what D'87 Raymond Lambert did and he is sharing his behind the scenes entrepreneurial story with our Darden Chicago alumni.  Stay tuned as we're working on event details but you can order Raymond's book All Jokes Aside  or rent the documentary Phunny Business from Amazon... or, you can stay in that safe banking job.
