The College of Graduate and Continuing Studies welcomed Vinh Giang to campus as the 2018 Residency Conference keynote and Todd Lecture Series speaker on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 7 p.m. in Plumley Armory.
As a magician, Giang is both a “surprising and provocative speaker,” in keeping with the Todd Lecture Series’ mission. His experience and message supports Norwich University’s goal to be a learning community that is “global in perspective, engage in personal and intellectual transformation and dedicated to knowledge, mutual respect, creativity and service.”
Giang’s drive as an entrepreneur and his methods for constant self-improvement reinforce the week-long Residency Conference theme of Build on the Past. Lead into the Future. His presentation will cover a wide range of topics: influence, perspective, goal setting, and thinking outside the box. Giang will use magic to illustrate how these topics have affected his life and business practices. His personal experiences align with Norwich’s focus on experiential learning and its values of teamwork, leadership, critical thinking, perseverance in the face of adversity and personal responsibility.
