WITH INSIGHT: Shai Reshef, President of University of the People
Between beliefs and markets, imagination and data, you’ll find Insight. In our dynamic times, adaptation is constant because growth and the status quo do not coexist. It is WITH INSIGHT that your vision becomes clearer, learning becomes systematic, understanding is conceivable.
WITH INSIGHT is a fireside chat series hosted by Insight Partners Managing Director, Deven Parekh, and thought leaders across the world. For this special event on February 23rd, Deven spoke with Shair Reshef, President of the University of the People.
