“After 20 years working in both corporate structure and as an entrepreneur, I always tried to give priority to emlyon business school juniors as I believe it is part of the game when joining this type of business school. I‘ve never been disappointed and even more I was always amazed by the energy, the creativity while demonstrating strong organization skills. I have numerous emlyon graduates in my team on which I strongly rely, including my partner on Ubudu Asia.
In addition, when you live abroad and you are looking for a job in a place very far from your former network, the emlyon forever alumni network can be a great asset. I did experience this situation in 1997, and I can still remember pieces of advice which were given to me by emlyon alumni working in HK.
Last but not least, I believe that connecting people is crucial in today’s world. Some people are funding companies or would like to find a partner in their venture, others are working in private equity and are willing to invest in new venture but connecting all those profiles is not that easy. The emlyon forever network could be a good platform to start with.
All those reasons have pushed me to become an emlyon forever ambassador to give back and try to improve the connection among alumni in the dynamic area.”
