We would like to extend our thanks to the NAA of the Netherlands who did a fantastic job of hosting the Europe Alumni Forum in June. A sold-out event, the forum gathered a great crowd of INSEAD alumni, faculty and inspirational speakers. The forum addressed a number of major themes facing business leaders today, including the changing geopolitical landscape, the growing demands on our environment and new technologies. Watch the highlights here.
