For its third edition, Audencia Around the World continues to innovate
With 30 events on the agenda, the School's alumni ambassadors rivalled with one another to bring creative -online and offline- solutions for some light relief and an antidote to working behind a computer screen. Open to the whole Audencia community, these events shared the same objective of connecting and re-connecting alumni.
In a nutshell, here's what the past week looked like:
- 30 events in a single week on all 5 continents – 10 offline / 20 online
- 45 alumni & student organisers involved
- 2 professors co-hosting (thank you Camilla & Uwe)
- 450 registrations
- 1 dedicated website
- 50 packets of coffee for the tag challenge
- 20 yoga mats in Mexico
- 4 bottles of wine in Geneva (opened and tasted by the sommelier - not counting those opened and consumed by participants!)
- Lots of cherry blossom in Tokyo
- 19,072 calories burned in Shenzhen
It's still not too late to drop by the online photo booth where you can create your avatar and take your picture and have it sent to you!
