Taking action in the search of meaning 

Not a day goes by without hearing it mentioned in the media, in conversation or from one of your friends: the concept of a “search for meaning” is of course not new, but the health crisis linked to COVID has brought it to the forefront. Successive lockdowns have given many people the chance to take stock  of their aspirations. We have seen many alumni of all ages change careers - the perfect embodiment of “changemakers for a better society”.

Some of them have chosen to leave the office for an entirely new venture in the crafts and manual trades. It is becoming more and more common to come across IÉSEG alumni who have taken a CAP cuisine diploma or who have moved into the "food" sector in the broader sense. You can read about some inspiring examples in the pages which follow and also in our Christmas catalogue which accompanies this issue. Why not think about supporting our plucky entrepreneurs by giving “Made by IÉSEG” gifts  this Christmas! 

The end of the year is approaching, and with it an opportunity to take stock of the last few months and celebrate our School's place in the rankings (see p.4), but also to prepare for the future. The Network is drawing up its roadmap for 2025 and is in collaborative mode: don’t hesitate to share your suggestions for improving what we do and our services.

Enjoy the rest of the year and this issue!
