On 26 February and 5 March, Essia, Daniel, Emma, Mehdi, Antoine, Louise, Arij, Thomas, Souheila, Mathilde and Vincent were invited to lunch with Jean-Luc Bélingard and Jean and Hélène Peters at the Château, HEC Paris.
An inter-generational meeting of minds at which the donors were able to observe the progress made by the students at HEC.
It was also an opportunity for the students to pick up some valuable advice from the donors regarding their future careers.
" It really is just a joy to see how well-equipped these young people are to make a bright start in life. "

" I have met some truly inspiring people in the course of my career. Today I feel it is my duty to extend this dynamic. By contributing to the development of foundations in which we believe, we get to meet some extraordinary people. By offering my support, I hope that I in turn can inspire the younger generations.. "
