Random Dinners are looking for Hosts

Do you love to cook? Meet new friends?

Our upcoming 3 December Random Dinners need hosts. Please contact Lydia at the NAA if you would like to host a group of  INSEAD Alumni to you home and show them what you’ve got in the kitchen. 

Read on to find out more about our Random Dinners.

Spend an enjoyable and convivial evening, getting to know new and like-minded people over food and wine in a relaxed small-group setting. A Random Dinner is essentially a dinner party hosted by an INSEAD alum in his/her own home where dinner guests are fellow alumni who will most likely not have known each other before. We typically have between 8-10 hosts on that evening and total group sizes of between 6-8 people at each dinner. 

There is a suggested contribution from each guest, of which the bulk will go towards helping the hosts cover the costs of providing a sumptuous 3-course meal and non-alcoholic drinks. Guests are welcome to contribute wine.
Hear what past participants have to say:
“The dinner was great and we really bonded with our guests. The smaller interaction format is quite effective.” – Priya Rath, host (MBA 08D)
We had so much fun and people left at close to 1am! It was quite some work but I absolutely enjoyed hosting it. Please let me know when the next dinner is and I am happy to host again (as long as I’m in singapore)!” – Peng Zhang (MBA 09D)
“Nice food, nice company,  nice conversations, (and nice wine from our very hard-selling host ;p). Great way to spend my Saturday evening, thanks everyone!  ” – Bernice Lin (MBA 13J)
“I love INSEAD random dinners; I walk in knowing no one, then leave with a new group of friends!  A very fun relaxing night. ” – (Ryan Benner, MBA 10J)

Wedding Bells for INSEAD Alumni

The past weekend saw some of our active INSEAD Singapore Alumni wed across the world.  Jean-Francois Legourd (MBA12D) married Serene Toh at the Singapore Botanical Gardens Burkill Hall. Whilst Gabor Hava and Ana Blanco (both MBA13D) tied the knot in Miskolc, Hungary.

We wish them all the very best for their happy futures together.
