Event description

Description

Pulling from excerpts in his newly released memoir, Out of the Gobi: My Story of China and America, Weijian Shan will speak on his fascinating journey from a young boy growing up during the Chinese Cultural Revolution to his ascent to Chairman & CEO of private equity firm PAG, where today he oversees $30 billion in assets. Sent to dig ditches as a farm laborer in the Gobi desert at age 15 and denied schooling for 10 years, he ultimately earned a scholarship to study in the US where he went on to earn an MA, MBA and PhD.

***Note this ticket is for viewing the live-stream in Spieker Forum. Audience members will be able to participate in the Q&A.
