The 2018 STBI (Small Talk Big Idea) Brown Bag Series is built upon the success of the STBI Seminar. This year, the organizing team has decided to experiment with a new format to make the event less formal and more open. It is held from 11:30 a.m to 12:15 p.m. and the speaker and audience will have 10 minutes to mingle and complete their lunch of bánh mì which is normally wrapped in brown bags. The School of Economics will provide free coffee and water for everyone and a sandwich/bánh mì lunch for the speaker. If the weather permits, the presentation will be held in the lobby area at the School’s venue on Hoang Dieu Street, Phu Nhuan District.
You are encouraged to bring your own bánh mì for lunch and mingle with the speaker at the beginning of the session.
