MEDEF's Summer School 2009

There will be a record number of participants at MEDEF's Summer School. By the end of August 5,000 people had signed up, and 250 speakers were attending from the worlds of business, politics, science, religion and intellectual endeavour. This year's theme is "Researching New Times". "Faced with a deeper crisis and more violence than ever before, we have a collective responsibility: to renew, re-design, discover, even invent something new. And there probably isn't one single answer, one single vision of the future", said MEDEF organiser Laurence Parisot.
