Nov 22, 2012
Only available in English

IE is delighted to invite you to its event Opportunity Amidst Uncertainty: Critical Challenges in the Eurozone on the 22nd November 2012 at 7pm at the Centre de Conférences Edouard VII in Paris.

At this event, a panel of high-level experts will explore the possible outcomes of the crisis and opportunies within the Eurozone. Our panel speaker guests will be joined by an audience of economics experts, opinion leaders, international press, non-governmental organisations, amongst others, to provoke thought and awareness of innovation in the current Economic climate.

Ranked as the 3rd Business School in the World in Corporate Social Responsibility by the Aspen Institute, IE believes that the corporate world has an important role in re-shaping the Eurozone economy. As a top Business School, we not only have the power to influence the times in which we live, we also feel it is our responsibility to lead such a currently important debate and to evoke positive change in this economic climate. Following 40 years of hosting worldwide conferences, IE has developed its reputation as a global leader and think tank in Economics.

This event will be free of charge. Places are limited and will be confirmed by email on your registration.
