Assemblée Générale 2018

L’Assemblée Générale 2018

C’est toujours avec un grand plaisir que nous avons accueilli près d’une centaine de membres pour notre Assemblée Générale.

Pour la première fois, nous étions accueillis par la Banque Richelieu France que nous remercions chaleureusement.

Au programme de cette Assemblée Générale, les accomplissements de l’exercice 2017-2018, première année de mandat de notre président Thomas Bittner, et les projets de l’exercice à venir.

Cet exercice a été marqué par 200 événements et 4099 participants. Nos clubs, très actifs grâce au travail acharné de nos bénévoles, font la fierté de notre association et nous espérons vous (re)voir sur l’un de leurs événements très prochainement.

Autre fait marquant, et un peu moins heureux : la baisse du nombre de cotisants. Avec une perte de 50 membres sur l’exercice, le comité stratégique de l’Association est à pied d’œuvre pour travailler sur l’expérience des Alumni et notamment des plus récentes promotions. C’est également la mission de notre nouveau comité Young Alumni, dirigé par Hicham Aber.

Concernant les projets de notre association pour 2019, l’année sera animée par le lancement de Business & Society. Cette chaire, créée par l’INSEAD il y a quelques mois, nous invite à travailler sur l’impact du Business sur notre société. Tout au long de l’année, des événements seront créés pour accompagner cette thématique.

A l’ordre du jour également, une offre plus conviviale. Nous développerons tout au long de l’année des événements INSEAD Alumni ouverts à vos familles et amis pour partager des moments de convivialité.

Enfin, pour les membres 2019, vos compagnes/ons peuvent désormais s’inscrire au tarif membres à tous nos événements

Welcome to Florence Larigauderie, new Executive Committee Member!

In order to enrich the club events offer and to address the current business trends we are creating more cross events. Florence is an enthusiastic team player and has long been active in the IAAF. She is the Hacking Growth Club’s co-President and actively participates in the creation of “Vertical Mobility” events in partnership with the Energy, Auto and Economy clubs.
 
Florence studied archaeology and led teams working on an excavation site in Syria, creating at the same time a cultural tourism business locally.

Over the course of her career she joined Steelcase, American Express GBT, BNP Paribas and Edenred, developing business and defining new strategies in several areas, including Travel and Payment means. She is also the Treasurer of the Orchestre Atelier Ostinato, a center of excellence training high potential young musicians to play in a symphonic orchestra. 

The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society

On October 5, The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society, which aims to transform leaders, change the world, was inaugurated.

The Institute brings together business leaders, INSEAD’s world-class faculty and staff, researchers, alumni and students from different countries, disciplines and experiences. The goal is to create new knowledge, curricula, and outreach opportunities to equip tomorrow’s leaders with the tools necessary to address our global challenges

Our Dean, Ilian Mihov, told us : “The greatest challenges of your day cannot be solved with old ways of thinking. They require the ingenuity of bold leaders who can champion business as a force for good. INSEAD is committed to develop these leaders.

President of this Institute is Katell Le Goulven. We already have celebrated this Institute at our Global INSEAD Day in her presence.

Working effectively in a French Cultural Environment-New Workshop

New Workshop : Working effectively in a French Cultural Environment – NEW IN ENGLISH

So many of us are delighted when we hear we’re going to be taking on a role in France – it’s an exciting, challenging, complex and dynamic market that we may already know having lived or studied here before.

Initially it seems relatively easy to navigate and we can use our skills as international executives and leaders to integrate successfully. However, the challenge is that in the French culture what you see is not always what you get and it’s only later that we become aware of the subtleties and how we may not have been as successful as we thought.

This session is an interactive session where we will:

  • take an in-depth look at the French culture based on models including the latest work from Erin Meyer at INSEAD;
  • translate these insights into how we can be more effective at an individual, managerial and organisational level;
  • come away with some actions that we can put into practice straight away to enhance our effectiveness but also our enjoyment of our work in the French environment;

The session will be lead by Jane Aubriet-Beausire, an expert in leadership development and coaching who designs and runs learning events for multinational companies world-wide. She is specialised in cross-cultural career management having been involved with INSEAD for several years as well as teaching this subject at HEC business school. Having lived and worked in six different countries with France being her permanent home since 2002, she will also bring perspectives, laughter and stories from her own experience.
