Louis Hébert, the EMBA McGill-HEC Montréal’s co-director, was invited as a guest speaker during the last conference organized by the members of the Cercle des présidents. The event took place on the 27th of April at the Club Mount-Stephen. The host, Gérard Geoffrion, the President and CEO of Van Houtte, lead the discussion around the theme of “The New Business Reality: 2. Redefining a Company’s Strategy”. The issue of how CEOs must react quickly with their team to deal with an increasingly competitive environment, mobile technologies and instantaneous communications was central.
