“Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.”
At the beginning of November, Cyrus Fazel, our founder, gave a lecture on the principles of branding to a group of bright and aspiring students from Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne, one of the leading and most prestigious hotel schools in the world. According to him, the best recipe for teaching students is to, “smile, joke, make it as participative as possible, explain fundamentals, then apply them to recent case studies instead of examples from the 1990s. At the end of class, embark your audience in a fun and entertaining Kahoot quiz.”
The Finance Club of NEOMA Alumni Switzerland hosted an event on November 14 at Oncle Edouard Restaurant in Geneva. At this occasion, Cyrus Fazel (BBA EDHEC 2007) presented his views on "Decentralizing Finance: In which hands will money be held” followed by drinks and networking.
HEC Lausanne co-organised an event with Start Lausanne, a student-led society, "Financing in the age of crypto: all about SwissBorg ICO". Our Chief Business Development Officer, Christophe Diserens and Cyrus Fazel, our Co-founder, gave a talk on the impact of ICOs and how to attain financial freedom.
Adrien (9th grade) spent an exciting day at our Lausanne headquarters. As part of JOM (journée oser tous les métiers) program in Vaud, for a 1-day internship at SwissBorg, the high school student explored the world of a fin-tech startup. Cyrus Fazel tutored him on blockchain technology and digital assets throughout the day.
