Philadelphia, PA –The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania will hold its 44th Wharton Global Forum in Paris on October 10 – 11, 2013 on the theme of “Talent.” At the Forum, Wharton faculty, alumni and business leaders from France and around the globe will encounter multiple opportunities to examine topics such as negotiation strategies, dynamic environments for talent, optimal leadership structures, and creativity in the workplace.

“We are very pleased to gather in Paris again and address this vital global business topic,” said Wharton School Dean Thomas S. Robertson. “Throughout the history of Wharton’s Global Forums, these exchanges have served as a catalyst for innovation, allowing best practices to be shared on an international scale and inspiring leaders around the globe.”

“The Wharton School stands at the forefront of talent development through its renowned undergraduate, MBA and doctoral programs, Executive Education offerings and Lifelong Learning programs,” said Antoine Dréan, WG ’92, Founder and Chairman of Triago, and Chairman of the Global Forum Paris Organizing Committee.

“Some of Wharton’s leading faculty members are investigating issues related to this area – such as the skills gap, the employer-employee divide, executive development, and many other pertinent topics – and we are pleased to have them here in Paris to share that knowledge, added Nicolas Topiol, WG’91, Chief Executive Officer of Christian Lacroix SNC  and Co-Chairman of the Organizing Committee.
