In Paris, there was business speaker Florence Servan-Schreiber; in London, there was EDHEC alumna and e-commerce entrepreneur Béatrice de Montille; and in Vevey, Switzerland, there was EDHEC alumnus Laurent Freixe, Executive Vice President of Nestlé.

EDHEC RDV venues exemplified the innovative spirit and diversity of the EDHEC alumni network. While alumni in Paris opted for a nightclub, alumni in Lyon held their event at the local rugby stadium. In Nice and Montpellier, the obvious choice was to share a meal by the water’s edge. Other alumni groups looked skywards: in Dublin, New York and Dubai, rooftop gardens and restaurants were chosen to host the event. EDHEC’s Belgian alumni met in a renovated Airstream caravan!
