Ryan Blanchette, LGO '98, tells China LGO students and alumni about the power of the LGO network

The China Leaders for Global Operations (CLGO) program began in 2007 at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. It is a dual-degree MBA and SM in Engineering program affiliated with the MIT LGO program. The first gathering of CLGO alumni, along with current students, faculty and industry partners, took place in Shanghai on January 20, 2011. A featured speaker was Ryan Blanchette, LGO '98, who worked from 2009-2011 as the General Manager of the TRW CTCS Braking joint venture in Chongqing, China. Ryan spoke eloquently about the value of the MIT LGO and MIT Sloan network, which he said was responsible for all seven of his jobs since graduating from MIT and had provided him with lifelong friendships. Referring to a "positive reinforcing loop" (inspired by his Systems Dynamics course at MIT), Ryan urged the alumni of the CLGO program to create their own network so that they could also enjoy the inflows of energy into their careers, relationships and lives that he and MIT LGO graduates enjoy.
