After months of planning, The Face of Talent officially kicked off today with Final Project Presentations at Wieden+Kennedy and the Leadership Development Forum powered by McCann Worldgroup.

Fifteen cross-national teams have been working tirelessly this summer to compete in the annual MAIP summer project.  Partnering with Wieden+Kennedy, fellows were tasked to work on a Nike project.  To say they were excited is an understatement.   It's come down to four teams and the stakes are high.  The winning team will be announced at The Face of Talent Diversity Leadership Luncheon tomorrow. While we wait, check out some behind the scenes images below.

In the afternoon, fellows participated in the Leadership Development Forum powered by McCann Worldgroup and led by Carolyn Ou, MAIP Alum and Executive Leadership Coach at Sandbox Consulting.  The interactive workshop took fellows through a series of activities to learn how to get out of one's own way.  You know the age old saying, "You're your own worst enemy."  Well, our fellows learned how to fight (and occasionally) work with their "Gremlins" - fellows you know what we're referring to.
