Student testimonials on conferences:
Feedback of Kevin S., current student of the programme and Project Management Assistant at Takasago, on the conferences given by Delphine Vitry, Partner and Founder of MADnetwork, and Anne Debard, expert in French etiquette, hospitality management, commerce and Luxury sectors:
"Mrs Vitry's vision of the luxury retail market was particularly astounding and relevant. Not only did she share her enthusiasm for luxury, but she also shared her passion for retail and merchandising, which are areas that can sometimes be left aside by companies when they actually need them most. Her intervention was highly insightful, and from what I've discussed with other students, it gave us something to reflect on for a long time."
"Conducting business in the luxury industry requires a knowledge that goes beyond what we could possibly learn in books or traditional classes; there are implicit rules that you might discover throughout your career. But being aware of them very early in the programme thanks to a hands-on workshop [like Anne Debard’s conference] enables you to quickly understand the specificities of the industry and its "do's" and "don'ts"."
Feedback of Yu H., current student of the programme and Corporate Communication Intern at Reuters, on the conference given by Delphine Vitry, Partner and Founder of MADnetwork:
"I Love her! She is charming and professional. She really understands how this retail business should be run and what she is talking about. I would love to talk to her again about retail business in Luxury to gain more ideas about this industry."
