On Thursday, March 24th, emlyon forever United Arab Emirates gathered at Mercury Lounge-Four Seasons Jumeirah-Dubai hotel. Almost 20 alumni were present which is very promising for the upcoming events.
We also had the pleasure to welcome Bintou who just arrived in Dubai a month ago as a VIE at Bioderma as well as Gregoire Post, Wealth Management Director for UBS in Switzerland as he spends 10 days in Dubai every two months.
As a first official gathering of 2016 with the new emlyon forever ambassadors team, Sara and I were aiming at reactivating the feeling of belonging to “emlyon business school”. Beyond just being alumni from the same business school, most of us are friends, cheering up and supporting each other’s. The main objective of the new team that was presented during the evening is to organize different kind of gatherings depending on the UAE community’s expectations in order to involve as many alumni as possible on a regular basis, reinforce professional solidarity and create business opportunities … always in a very convivial atmosphere.
The top-ranked roof-top venue was really nice with a great view on Dubai skyline and the atmosphere was very friendly, a great occasion to all catch up on news, professional and personal situations. Lots of laughs, jokes and nice stories were heard. News from our School were given to those who were not present when Christèle Fernand, emlyon forever Director came to Dubai last January to update us on the ambitious emlyon business school 2020 strategy.
