English language event followed by a drinks reception. Free of charge subject to registration.

A wind of change is blowing across the world, affecting every aspect of society: political, social and economic. For thousands of years, nations have been driven by the art of war, so it appears urgent for a new logic to be developed – the art of peace! Associating peace with the world of business, its markets, its jobs, and its investments is no longer the impossible dream of idealists, but a genuine new alternative.

Everybody can contribute to a better world; be prepared for your attitudes to be challenged!

business and conservation

François Lemarchand, founder of Pier Import and Natures et Decouvertes

A question and answer session led by Charles Waldman, MBA academic director. French language event followed by a drinks reception. Free of charge subject to registration.

François Lemarchand is the founder of the Nature et Découvertes chain of stores, and a national icon for sustainable development and the environment. Deeply marked at the age of 18 by the American wilderness (“a shock!”), and a traveller at heart, he managed to combine his passion with his entrepreneurship. With Pier Import, which he relaunched in Europe in the 80s, he introduced craftsmanship from all over the world to French homes. When he launched Nature et Découvertes in 1990, he decided to hand over 10% of its profits to a foundation of the same name.
