« My profession, my passion »: great discussion in London!

May 31, 2017

On April 27th, about twenty alumni from emlyon business school gathered at the offices of UBS Asser Management in the center of London to discuss the theme “My profession, my passion”.


The local ambassador of the emlyon forever alumni network, Tany-Laure Lu presented the alumni network in the UK, its projects and the different events that are organized throughout the year. As an alumnus, if you have any ideas of events or topics you would like to share with the network, do not hesitate to get in touch with Tany or Marie! Both will be more than happy to hear you out!


Alumni also got the opportunity to discover the new projects and the achievements of their school, over the past three years, thanks to the presentation of Aurore Poirier, International business development & alumni network manager for emlyon forever. New campuses, globalization, new teaching methods, digitalization and more – great achievements for emlyon business school! Furthermore, she presented the alumni network and the benefits of lifelong membership, especially for alumni who live abroad. For more information, read this article.

The second part of the evening was dedicated to a roundtable on the topic “My profession, my passion”. 6 alumni had the opportunity to share their vision and how they relate to this theme:



It was interesting to discover the diversity of professions represented by the panelists, but also that the word “passion” has a different meaning for each and every one of us. Some people find their passion in the variety of tasks they have to accomplish each day, some in the challenges they need to face, and others in the satisfaction of associating what they like to do with their work. We would like to thank our guest speakers for taking the time to join us.


Finally, the participants had the chance to pursue the conversations around a nice cocktail served at the UBS offices. This event was a great opportunity to mix different groups of alumni.


On a final note, we hope you will join our next event, scheduled on June 13th: a panel and cocktail “Entrepreneurs for a sustainable economy”!
