INSEAD artgenève Tour&Cocktails, January 28, 2016

Visit artgenève and enjoy the INSEAD artgenève 2016 package. It features entry to the exhibition plus cocktails at 19:30. You can arrive at anytime to visit the art displays and then join fellow alumni and guest for cocktails at 19:30. In fact, we encourage you to come early and see as much of the exhibition before joining in the tour or networking cocktails.

Guided Tour: INSEAD alumnus Andrea Bastreghi will share his passion for art and knowledge with participants on a tour of the exhibition at 18:30. Indicate when registering that you will join the tour. The size is limited. Allocation is based on a first in, first served basis. We’ll notify you if you are in the tour allocation.

VIP Cards: Like last year, the artgenève director, Thomas Hug, and the VIP Relations Director, Anne-Shelton Aaron, are providing some free VIP cards for INSEADers to experience some very exclusive art events taking place in Geneva downtown during the artgenève exhibition. We will have a draw for the free passes during the cocktail event!

Is Gmail ‘Hiding’ Your Swiss INSEAD Alumni Association Event Invitations?

Some alumni haveGmails-new-tabbed-inbox-scrennshots reported that event invitations are not arriving in their inbox. If you’re a Gmail user, it is probably because the invitations are being automatically filed by Google into your Gmail “Promotions” folder. (See screenshots to see how the tabs appear on mobilephones).

Gmail is set up to organize all your incoming email under three tabs: ‘Primary’, ‘Social’, and ‘Promotions’. Invitations and reminders typically get filed under “Promotions”. This is similar to what a server does or email programme (e.g. Outlook or Thunderbird) do when they automatically shifts emails based on content or sender into a Spam folder.

If you have not seen an email invite from us in a while, try clicking the Promotions tab. If you need any further assistance, send us a note [email protected]

PS. You can turn off the Gmail tabs feature. It’s very easy. See instructions on How to Remove Gmail Tabs
