Leadership Series - Calvin Kang, “Past, Current, and Future of Uber and Mobike”
On Wednesday, October 17th, Calvin Kang, the former head of Uber Korea and current head of Mobike Korea, gave a lecture at GSIS as part of the CDC’s Leadership Series. The series is meant to give students a chance to listen to leaders discuss their career paths in the public and private sectors. Mr. Kang provided a very interesting narrative about his involvement with Uber and Mobike in Korea. He focused on both the greatest rewards and difficulties during his time with the two companies. Throughout the presentation, we learned about his life and experience in Hong Kong and Singapore before he started working in Korea. Sometimes, roadblocks in life make us want to quit, but Mr. Kang’s story left the students in the room feeling more inspired, knowing that they can succeed despite unexpected challenges. Thank you to the CDC for providing the opportunity for GSIS students to listen to an inspiring person.
