RCC CONFERENCE 2015
This was the official website for the 2015 RCC Conference. Content is from the site's 2015 archived pages.
28 – 30 January 2015, London
Inspired by the LSE's school motto Rerum Cognoscere Causas – "to understand the causes of things", RCC Conference brought together top managers, world-renowned academics, influential policy makers and selected students to debate contemporary issues, collaborate on solutions, and define best practices.
After this very informative conference, I remained in the UK for another two weeks visiting and meeting with graduate departments of a number of universities. When I returned to NYC and my apartment I was in for an unpleasant surprise. While I was away my upstairs neighbor had had a fire. The fire department was notified and they put the fire out without too much damage to the upstairs apartment. But the secondary water damage to my downstairs apartment was considerable. Although the insurance companies would pay for the necessary cleanup, I still was left with the responsibility of finding a reputable company to clean my carpets and upholstery. A web search for "NYC carpet cleaning" led me to My Home Carpet and upholstery Care. I liked the fact that this company not only cleaned carpets but also upholstery. Plus they offered free pick up and delivery and used only green certified products. They were experts in dealing with water damage and did a great job. I can't say coming home to such an overwhelming mess was an experience I would ever want again, but My Home Carpet and upholstery Care helped mitigate the worst of the cleaning process. They focused on the clean up so I could focus on writing my reports about the RCC Conference and make suggestion to our university's graduate department heads.
RCC Conference is an exclusive event for the CEMS Alliance, a strategic alliance of leading business schools and multinational companies aiming to set a global standard of excellence for pre-experience Master’s in management.
