Fall Campaign 2019

This fall, join us as we recognize and celebrate the IMPACT that AIESEC has had on all of us — shaping careers, creating leaders, building life-long friendships. It’s both rewarding and important that we are able to continue doing the same for today’s AIESEC youth by providing a strong alumni network. 

Alumni and LC members will gather in major hub cities across the country to share
 the IMPACT of AIESEC Life. Hear from interesting and engaging speakers who will cover an array of topics including building your own personal brand, community activism, international finance and more!  Click on this link and check back in the coming weeks for more details on the local hub events.

Alumni Spotlight:  Barnaby Wallace Benefiting Consumers, Innovating & Growing Brands: A CAN-AM AIESEC Perspective

Barnaby Wallace, the head of Global Commercial Packaging at Mars Petcare, explains that “consumer goods companies can’t save their way to prosperity. You have to innovate and grow brands and products.” Through his many years working in procurement for international consumer products companies such as Kraft Foods, Clorox, Coca-Cola and Proctor & Gamble, he has worked to strategically innovate the function, noting that “the procurement function typically impacts 70% of a company’s cost structure so being more effective in the discipline benefits companies and ultimately consumers.” Barnaby explains that in this business, “it is fast moving and always changing which means embracing change is part of life.”
