To celebrate “INSEAD Giving Day” you are warmly invited for our annual alumni dinner at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. This event will be hosted and is generously sponsored by Royal Dutch Shell.The speakers on this special occasion will be Prof. Andrew Shipilov, the John H. Loudon chaired Professor of International Management at INSEAD, and Mrs. Jessica Uhl (MBA’97J), Chief Financial Officer at Royal Dutch Shell. Prof. Shipilov will speak to us about “Partnerships & Ecosystems”.
Why are we celebrating INSEAD Giving Day? As a not-for-profit institution, INSEAD greatly benefits from alumni who give back to the school. For this reason the international alumni and the school organize INSEAD Giving Day: the annual time of year for alumni, faculty and staff to jointly show their support for the school and its mission of “Business as a Force for Good”.
In the Netherlands we traditionally celebrate INSEAD Giving Day through a sponsored alumni dinner with an INSEAD professor as the keynote speaker. Because of the kind and generous support of (this year) Royal Dutch Shell and Prof. Shipilov, the ticket price for this event will fully serve as a gift to INSEAD. At the dinner itself there will not be a fundraising appeal.
If you would like to read more about the importance and impact of alumni giving, the website of the school’s “Force for Good” campaign here provides a good overview.
The event will start at 17.30h. You will receive a confirmation of your registration with all necessary details. Capacity is limited and seats will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.
On behalf of the board of the Alumni Association the Netherlands and on behalf of the school, thank you in advance for your support, and we look forward to seeing you on March 20! Should you not be able to attend the event, your financial donation will still be much appreciated.
