HBS Professor Deepak Malhotra on “The Peacemaker’s Code” and Lessons on Negotiations, Strategy & Diplomacy
Time & Location
About the Event
The HBS Club of Toronto, in collaboration with the HBS Club of Pittsburgh, will host a conversation with Deepak Malhotra, Eli Goldstein Professor of Business Administration at HBS, about the negotiation, strategy and diplomacy lessons in his recently published debut novel, The Peacemaker’s Code. While The Peacemaker’s Code has elements of sci-fi, thriller and drama, it re-examines the human condition and blends in real insights and learnings.
Professor Kilmer, a renowned historian of war and diplomacy, is collected from his home and whisked off to Washington. Thrust into the highest levels of government as an adviser to the President, the young historian must come to terms with the seemingly impossible, figure out how to navigate a world where not everything is as it appears, and use all the skills and knowledge he has acquired in his life to help save humanity from a conflict of truly epic proportions. A genre-breaking novel that re-examines the human condition and masterfully blends some of the most compelling themes in literature: war & peace, strategy & serendipity, love & friendship, courage & fear, the bounds of possibility, and the limits of imagination.
