Conference: When tech giants take control

Join the debate on Tuesday 21st February! Jeremy Ghez, HEC Paris Professor of Economics and International Affairs, will introduce his research on the rise of the tech oligopoly comprising Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple (GAFAs). The presentation will be followed by a conversation with LSE Professor Saul Estrin.

  • These giants are not only profoundly shaping the tech industry, but also redefining the notion of governance. Taken together, GAFAs generated $433 billion in revenues in 2015, putting them at the same level as a medium-sized economy in terms of financial weight and economic might.
    During the session, Profs. Ghez and Estrin will discuss what their sheer financial weight means to the global economy and society, from influencing personal behaviours to fostering new geopolitical trends.

    How are GAFAs influencing rules and priorities in our daily life?
    How do they reshape our perception of space and relationships?
    What role do they play in the emergence of worldwide geopolitical trends?
    Are GAFAs redefining the whole notion of power?
    ​The conference ​will take place at the London School of Economics and will be followed by a networking reception at The Marquess of Anglesey (39 Bow St, London WC2E 7AU)​.

    18.30 – 19.00 – Welcome & arrival
    19.00 – 20.30 – Conference and Q&A
    20.30 – 22.00 – Networking reception at The Marquess of Anglesey

Luxury Reloaded: Master Class by Prof. Gachoucha Kretz in NYC

As part of the 3rd HEC Paris Alumni American (East Coast) Gathering, HEC Professor Gachoucha Kretz will deliver a masterclass on luxury.

  • Luxury Reloaded: Why Artisans are not enough to preserve luxury luster anymore

    The luxury industry is facing unseen challenges: digital disruption (new forms of intelligence, big data, innovation, digital vertical brands), sustainability concerns, drive by fashion (accessories, sportswear, conceptual fashion, ugly designs), exponential technological growth, changing consumer trends (younger generations, Chinese wealth, influencers).

    Together, let us review how those challenges are shaping the luxury of tomorrow and explain why craftsmanship and artisans by themselves cannot save luxury anymore.

    Gachoucha Kretz is a marketing strategist with a strong expertise in brand management. She holds a PhD in Marketing (HEC Paris), a Master's degree in Finance (EDHEC), a Master's degree in Corporate Communication and Change Management (CELSA) and a Master's degree in Marketing and Strategy (Paris IX Dauphine). Before taking her PhD, she worked as a consultant at Arthur Andersen and as a marketing associate at TNS Kantar and L'Oréal Paris.

    Gachoucha's research and case study interests revolve around offline and online strategic brand management applied to fashion, luxury and beauty and online influence management.
    Gachoucha received the Vernimmen Best Teacher Award in 2018.
