New Event Format : INSEAD Salon Conversations November 13


INSEAD Salon Conversations, November 13, 2014, Zürich

Salon Conversations is a new event format bringing together Alumni from different backgrounds for an evening of casual discussions in a cultivated atmosphere.

If you have never attended a Swiss INSEAD Alumni event, this is the one to try! Join us at the stylish Brasserie Lipp, just off Bahnhofstrasse, for an evening of stimulating discussion over a three-course meal – with no PowerPoint slides, no microphones and no fixed agenda! Instead, you are seated at a table hosted by an Alumna or Alumnus invited to animate the table talk on a business topic close to their heart. Open to INSEAD Alumni and their spouses/partners, this event is limited to 30 places, so register early. More
