Sep 17 | #Share : PWN Paris International Hub - International Inspirational Talks
From Sep 17, 2020, 7:00 PM CEST to Sep 17, 2020, 10:00 PM CEST


We’re back with the first in-person event to launch the new PWN Paris season!

Get inspired for your international career!


Do you work in an international environment? Do you plan to do so? How does covid-19 change prospects for your international projects? Join us for our International Hub event with Chloé Clair (Vinci Construction) and Paolo Codazzi (GE Grid Solutions), who will share their insights as international top managers in a lively, interactive discussion.

Join us for an inspirational evening on September 17th at Le Sénat!


PWN VP #Share Marie-Laure Barreau and the International HUB team are pleased to bring you an evening of International Inspirational Talks.

We have two special guests for this evening:

  • Chloé Clair, Chief Technical Officer at Vinci
  • Paolo Codazi, Executive HR Technology & High Voltage Products at General Electric Grid Solutions

They will share their experience and expertise as top international managers through a discussion mediated by Mais Najib, Former Director, Global Head of Health Economics, Stallergenes and PWN Paris member, on how to successfully navigate the world of international business. Coming from different industries, they will offer both a woman and a man’s perspective on questions such as how to overcome obstacles as a woman in a male dominated industry; how to manage multicultural teams during times of transformation and upheaval; what are the key success factors to an international career.

In yet another approach to learning about multicultural facets, our speakers will engage in a rich exchange both with each other and with the audience.

Participants will learn how to drive an international career – what challenges to expect and how to overcome them, but also the immense benefits that we can reap from international experience. 

This International Inspirational Talk will get us excited about the perspectives for our careers and provide the opportunity to taking the next steps toward embarking on or developing our international projects.

A light dinner cocktail will be served in the beautiful setting of Le Sénat for a much appreciated networking moment.

Join us for an evening of insights, knowledge, and networking.
