On 5 October, The Force for Good Conference kicked off with over 600 INSEAD alumni, faculty, students, staff and friends on our Europe Campus.
Attendees included the CEO of Unilever, Paul Polman, who delivered a powerful keynote that was met with a standing ovation.
This was followed by an afternoon of presentations and conversations about aligning business with the urgent environmental, economic and social needs of society today. Alumni, faculty and guest speakers brought interesting thoughts and realistic ideas to a resourceful day that culminated with the inauguration of The Hoffmann Global Institute for Business and Society.
The event featured a students’ performance of Beethoven Romance in F to honour the generosity of donors André Hoffmann MBA’90D and his wife Rosalie.
At sunset, guests strolled to a brightly lit Château de Fontainebleau to celebrate the launch of The Campaign for INSEAD: A Force for Good with speeches from MBA’18D students, Dean Ilian Mihov and more!
Fireworks brought the incredible day to a breathtaking end.
