Knowledge and Study Tour NYC

In partnership with NYU Stern, we’re taking a group of women to New York City for four days/five nights of exceptional world-class learning and knowledge sharing. You’ll get access to world-class learning at the distinguished NYU Stern, go behind-the scenes at FDNY and head into carefully-selected NYC-based companies where you’ll have the opportunity to directly talk with the executives from these businesses to garner their expertise and take this knowledge back to the company where you work.

Why New York City?

As Frank Sinatra taught us, ‘if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere’ and with more than two million businesses operating in the greater New York area, this statement still rings true today. New York is harsh. It’s fast. It’s unforgiving. It is, without a doubt, one of the most competitive landscapes in the world and just to be able to make payroll, rent, and health insurance, let alone really make a go of it, you have to be doing something extraordinary to survive.

Some of the world’s most established companies – NBC Universal, IBM, JBMorgan Chase, Verizon, Avon, Deloitte, American Express – are headquartered in this incredible city and for good reason. The talent pool is huge, the clientele seems endless, the pace is fast and there’s a certain clout that comes from being domiciled in this iconic city.

Your time in New York City

15 – 19 September 2019

Day 1

15 September

You can check in at our accommodation hub, The Standard East Village, from 3pm. Settle in, and that evening, our team will be on hand to greet and welcome you for an amazing week ahead.

Day 2

16 September

This will be your first full day on campus at NYU Stern. Facilitated by one of NYU’s leading professors, we’ll cover two courses: ‘Disruptive Thinking: Sparking Transformation’ and ‘Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship: From Ideas to Action’.

Day 3

17 September

Today we take you behind the scenes to some of the New York companies who are truly innovating and looking to the future. Drawing on the lessons learned the previous day, we’ll give you access to areas usually closed off to the public and give you the chance to meet with senior executives, ask questions and get fully immersed in the world of business in New York.

Day 4

18 September

In the most quintessential of New York experiences, we’ll spend the day at the New York Fire Department’s state-of-the-art training academy. This will challenge everything you think and know about team building, problem solving and leadership development. You’ll navigate through a series of problems to learn first hand how NYFD leaders manage pressure and command their teams not only in emergency situations, but in the everyday ones too.

Day 5

19 September

During our final day on campus at New York University, we’ll head back to the classroom for a full day’s session on ‘The Agile Organisation and Future of Work’.

Seven reasons to experience
The Business Chicks Knowledge + Study Tour

1. Learning and growth, on a new level.  

This Tour will push you to experience new learnings and concepts that you’ll be able to bring back and apply to your work, but it does require your openness and commitment.

2. Exceptional education.  

Through our partnership with NYU Stern School of Business, we’ll provide you with access to world-class learning. We’ve handpicked exceptional faculty members who will help you identify immediate strategies to take home to your jobs and businesses.

3. The people you’ll meet.

You’ll start the Knowledge + Study Tour thinking you’re here to learn from the businesses and from the lecturers, and walk away having learned just as much from the conversations you’ll have on bus trips or over dinner with your fellow participants.

4. Money-can’t-buy experiences.

How many of your friends can say they’ve trained with the Fire Department of New York? At the Knowledge + Study Tour, we’ll learn from the FDNY about the leadership strategies they implement to create teams that thrive and deliver under extreme pressure.

5. The location  

We’re going to The Big Apple! Think Fifth Avenue! Central Park! And did we mention the shopping? Basing ourselves in one of the biggest and best cities of the world, it would be remiss of us not to sneak in some sights and dine at some of New York’s premier restaurants, enjoying all the city has to offer.

6. We open our black book to you.  

One of the highlights of the Study Tour is visiting local American businesses to see how they’ve scaled, attracted talent, solved problems, built brands, achieved market share etc etc. You’ll see how some of the top companies of the world really operate and learn how they motivate their teams to achieve success.

7.  Life is too short.

You could wait until you have more money. You could wait until the kids are a bit older. You could say you’re not experienced enough. You could make hundreds of excuses about why this isn’t the right time to go, or you could just listen to that little voice inside your head and just say yes.

Ready to book?

Whether you’re a business owner, business leader or manager, or just a damn amazing person who might be seeking more, this educational experience will spark something in you, open your eyes to new levels of possibility for yourself and your business and leave you with bunch of life-long friends and connections too.
