Strategy Forum at the Hermitage in Amsterdam, 25 November 2021

On Friday 12 November, the Dutch Government announced new COVID-19 restrictions, given the sharp increase in infections and hospital occupancy. Unfortunately, the INSEAD Strategy Forum at the Hermitage does not meet these new restrictions in its current form.
The Organizing Committee has therefore decided to move the event to Thursday 16 June 2022.

We invite you to participate in the final edition of the IAA NL’s series on the theme of Dutch Force for Good, a two-part event  focusing on finding concrete ways to create positive change in the community.

Business as a Force for Good was introduced as the raison d’être for the INSEAD community, and this forum aims to galvanize our community into action. Through the course of the event, we will highlight stories of impact from doers and introduce
opportunities for you to contribute personally and professionally.
Eminent speakers include Peter Bakker, Hein Schumacher, Ilian Mihov, Marjolijn Klaver, Wouter Kolk and many more!

Global INSEAD Day 2020 Digital Edition

On September 11th, 2020, more than 7,000 alumni and friends from 74 countries around the world registered for one or more of the 22 interactive webinars held that day. We began in Sydney and ended in San Francisco – with 24 hours of continuous programming!

The INSEAD Alumni Association in the Netherlands organized a talk show themed Using tech to impact communities with a variety of speakers. Among them were Teresa Fogelberg (Deputy Chief Executive of the Global Reporting Initiative and Chair of the Transparency Benchmark), Ingo Uytdehaage (CFO of Adyen) and Maurits Schönfeld (General Manager Northern Europe at Uber). Annet Aris (INSEAD professor, author and executive board member) also contributed to the show, which was moderated by Rens de Jong, a radio and TV anchor.

The 60 minute-show saw a lively discussion, covering a range of subjects, including how tech companies perceive their own role as creating positive impact in their local or global communities. The panel also discussed why tech companies should or shouldn’t integrate impact strategy into their business operations, and the consequences of such choice on their various stakeholders.

In case you were unable to attend the live event or would like to re-watch the talk show, please find the link here or watch any of the other Global INSEAD Day recordings here.
