On the 23rd February we held the ESADE Alumni Annual Conference at Barcelona’s Fórum Auditorium. This year’s ESADE Awards were awarded to Mikael Ohlsson, CEO of IKEA, and Pablo Isla, CEO of Inditex, for the business successes achieved in heading their two organisations. During the conference, Javier Santiso, Director of ESADEgeo, gave a lecture on the opportunities of the new world map.
More than 3,000 people attended the event and we filled the Auditorium. Being an ESADE alumni, the ESADE Alumni Annual Conference is a must, an event that none of us can miss. To be one of thousands of people, who all share a close bond with ESADE, and who all gather under one roof, is an intense experience.
The professional achievements of the executives and entrepreneurs who meet at the Annual Conference are irrefutable proof of ESADE’s contribution to our country’s future. To belong to the ESADE community, either as students, faculty or alumni, is something to be proud of, but at the same time it obliges us to honour our values: personal integrity, professional rigour and social responsibility.
