In our final episode for season one, we’re joined by a special guest, Executive Director of EDHEC Alumni, Martin Barbier, himself an EDHEC alumnus (1988). He joins our UK and Ireland Country Manager Cassandra Pittman to open up about job hunting at senior levels, France's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, what resources EDHEC is providing alumni during this and his time leading EDHEC's world famous sailing cup, the Course Croisière EDHEC.
Before graduating Martin served as the President of the 20th Course Croisière. He then went on to have a 20-year career in Consumer Goods, including senior management roles with Kraft Foods (now Mondelēz International) and e-health pioneer Medissimo. We’re now fortunate enough to have him back in a leading role at EDHEC, helping to direct our global 46,000+ alumni community.
