Q & A with Sir Winfried Bischoff – Leadership in times of financial crisis

On February 12th Sir Winfried Bischoff will speak to the INSEAD alumni community to share his insights and 50-years’ experience working in the highest echelons of the Financial Services industry. As Chairman of Lloyds Banking Group, Sir Win managed the company through its challenging post-2008 recovery phase. Sir Win will speak at an event of the INSEAD Alumni Leadership Group. “It is an enormous privilege for the INSEAD alumni community to benefit from the personal insights of a successful senior executive like Sir Win in a direct Q&A session” says Gaby Glasener-Cipollone, Sector Head of the INSEAD UK National Alumni Association Leadership Group.

Although not an INSEAD alumnus himself, Sir Win holds close ties to INSEAD having recently established the INSEAD Bischoff Family Endowed Scholarship to support future INSEAD participants from Southern Africa and South-East Asia.

The UK alumni association is the 2nd largest alumni association worldwide with 6,000 alumni. “INSEAD graduates now run many of Britain’s largest companies, major banks, private equity houses and financial services companies”, says Paul Skipworth, President UK National Alumni Association.
