 The first promotion of the EDHEC Family Business GEMBA, started last February, spent 2 weeks in Singapore, during the third module. The cohort of Participants actively works the Executive EDHEC Campus and develops their individual network through different events. First of them, arranged by EDHEC Family Business Centre with the support of FBN Asia, was such a success. Let's tell you about it. 

DesignThinking: Innovation In Action
Led by Pierre d’Huy, an innovative expert trained at Stanford University and Professor of Innovation Management at EDHEC Business School, this experiential workshop comprised lectures and global group-work with an emphasis on practice over theory.
The GEMBA Participants, with a fully international profile, was mixed with a group of Singaporian NextGen participants thanks to FBN Asia collaboration. 
All about Family Business, participants were mixed up again and 4 working groups were created. The workshop let participants share knowledge, best practices and of course, presentation cards. The key take-aways were as practice-oriented as possible:

  • An understanding of Design Thinking as a creative / innovative process;
  • Experiencing Design Thinking in small groups with various creativity processes;
  • Working on effectively communicating value creation.

After an intense day of work, GEMBA Participants were invited to the Lantern Bar Rooftop - Fullerton Bay Hotel, along with the FBN Asia NextGen members. They had a great time, sharing own experiences, visions and projects, while having food and drinks at one of the most beautiful sights on Singapore highlights.
