Nov2014_Salon Conversation_EventJoin us for Salon Conversations, a unique and popular event format that brings together Alumni from different backgrounds for an evening of interesting discussion in a cultivated atmosphere.

INSEAD Salon Conversations 2015, October 22, 2015 Zurich

This year Salon Conversations takes place in the “White Rose” dining room at the historical Zunfthaus zur Saffran. If you have never attended a Swiss INSEAD Alumni event, this is one to try! It is intimate and informal: no PowerPoint slides, no microphones and no fixed agenda! Instead, you are seated at a table hosted by an Alum who speaks on a business topic close to their heart. Open to INSEAD Alumni and their spouses/partners, this event is limited to 30 places. Tickets will go fast, so book early.
