On May 3rd 2018, the annual gathering of the Singapore emlyon forever community took place at the JW Marriott hotel.

The objective of the event was both social and informative: to gather the local alumni & students network, but also to share information regarding the emlyon business school development. Two representatives of the school traveled all the way to Singapore to come meet the population:

  • Christèle Fernand, former emlyon forever alumni network Director, based on the Ecully campus, who passed the torch to Fabienne Clérot – emlyon forever alumni network Director, based on the Paris campus;
  • And Aurore Poirier – International business development & alumni network manager, based on the Ecully campus.

Indeed, since the election of Guillaume Touze (MSc in Management 1994) as new President of the alumni association (ADEM), based in London, in July 2017, the alumni network has enhanced a new path of development, strongly correlated to the strategic plan of the school. The focus will be given to 5 strategic axes:

  • Segmentation;
  • Benchmarking;
  • Digitalization;
  • Internationalization;
  • And fundraising.

The school and the alumni network both have the project to develop activities around the world and the best way to achieve it, is to involve local alumni. A short-term action was notably, to recruit two new ambassadors for the community of Singapore to help Emmanuel and Florent animate the local network. Welcome to Maud Zeller and Thomas Tricart!

During the event, participants also got the opportunity to learn more about two innovation topics, important to the Singaporean market, thanks to two guest speakers:

All in all, it was a great gathering and we would like to thank again all attendees. Check out the photos of the event here.

Do not hesitate to share your ideas with your ambassadors and we hope to see many of you at our next event!
