Every year, INSEAD alumni are invited to a Meeting in Asia where they are updated on what’s happening with the school, ask questions and network.
I surreptitiously took some photos, sans flash (not wanting to look like a tourist, but still a blogger at heart). Let me give you a glimpse into the life of an alumnus:
Prof Ilian Mihov, who taught many of us J09ers and also won the best teaching award, gives us an update on the state of the economy.
Dean Frank Brown speaks.
I was moved by a current P2’s speech on how important it is that we keep alumni scholarships going. Many students in my batch gave to the Robin Hood fund, breaking the previous year’s record if I’m not mistaken.
It was nice seeing one of my INSEAD interviewers, SA, speaking next. It’s been over a year since we first met, and she looked and sounded fabulous.
Unfortunately I had to dash off for an appointment, and missed the rest of her panel as well as the final talk by Prof JC Larreche on the Momentum Effect, which seems to be the next big thing after Blue Ocean (at least, from the publicity it’s been getting). Time will tell…
Then in the evening we headed to the Ball. But that is worthy of a separate post in itself!
