BEIRUT NEEDS YOUR HELP

Dear alumni,

I assume that all of you have seen the shocking footage of the devastation caused by the unprecedented explosion in Beirut. Our alumni friends of the IAA Lebanon have started a fund raising campaign to support the Lebanese Red Cross. It would be great if we could all help a bit by donating to their cause.

Please have a look at iaalebanon.com, where you can easily make your donation. The IAA Lebanon will donate this to the Lebanese RedCross in the name of all the INSEAD Alumni Assocations: A Force for Good.

Any support would be greatly appreciated!

On behalf of the board of the IAA The Netherlands.

INSEAD SIN & IN-BOARD Golf Tournament

The traditional annual INSEAD SIN & IN-BOARD Golf Tournament was held on Thursday 9th July 2020 under superb circumstances of the Dutch summer weather. Last year’s winner, Manish Kumar Singh (MBA 2009), hosted a field of contenders at the Eindhovensche Golf, which is one of the leading golf courses in the Netherlands. In spite of, many twist and turns in the organization of the event due to COVID19 pandemic, thanks to the great support from IAA board, the event went on to keep the running legacy.

INSEAD | COVID-19

Dear friends,

In light of the recent COVID-19 developments and further to recent communication from the school, the INSEAD NAA in the Netherlands feels compelled to cancel all alumni events for the time being. This includes the Young Alumni Drinks scheduled for March 12th, the INSEAD Giving Day Dinner scheduled for March 17th and the Healthcare & Life Sciences event scheduled for April 9th.

We’ll continue to monitor COVID-19 carefully and in close cooperation with the school. Once the circumstances improve and events can be held safely again, we’ll let you know.

For now, we wish all of you stay healthy and be safe.

Best regards,

Sven Cobben
President INSEAD Alumni Association The Netherlands

INSEAD Random Dinner, February 6th, 2020

On Thursday Feb 6th, we had the pleasure to organize a new edition of Random Dinner in Amsterdam.

Dinners took place in 2 different locations, and it was a great opportunity to connect with other alumni, some new to Amsterdam, some others here for a long time, in a nice and cozy setting.

We managed to get 50% women – 50% men in both locations, and 100% of satisfied people.

We’re looking forward to the next edition, in a bigger scale with more hosts!
