Jonathan Azu (L) and Louis Carr (R)

Let's DU Lunch

Event Recording

Jonathan Azu, BN’99, and Louis Carr, JO’78, met when their music industry career paths crossed, and a mutual Drake experience sealed the deal: The two Bulldogs became friends, mentors, and collaborators.

During this session of Let’s DU Lunch, Jonathan and Louis will lead a conversation about professional collaboration, mentoring, giving back, and friendship as they share about their career and leadership experiences.
