* This aperitif/conference will be organized on Zoom: make sure you have downloaded it.

The round table will be followed by a networking session during which participants will be randomly divided into pairs or trios, for a quick presentation and exchange of contacts, in 15-minute sessions. An opportunity to make unexpected and enriching encounters!


📆 Program:

- 6.30pm: Round table
- 7.15pm: Networking

A few reminders to help you make the most of this moment of exchange:

  • Prepare a short brief to introduce yourself (profile, sectors and companies of interest) and get straight to the point ✔️
  • For the networking, you will be invited to join a room to meet one or two other alumni. Click on "accept" to start networking. Play along, don't leave your fellow alumni alone
    with their drinks ;) 💬
  • Once you're in the networking room, start by exchanging contacts, to avoid being disconnected first! The administrator disconnects the rooms every 12 to 15 minutes, so it would be a
    it would be a shame to have exchanged with someone and not have taken their email... A message will warn you 60 seconds before the automatic disconnection, but better safe than sorry. ⏱️
  • Every 12 to 15 minutes, you'll change rooms to meet other alumni, until 8pm. 🔄
