On the 15th anniversary of the Pierre Péladeau Chair of Leadership, we were honoured to receive Jean-Marie Zeitouni, conductor and artistic director of I Musici de Montréal, and Normand Laprise, Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux and co-owner of Toqué!

Cyrille Sardais, Jean-Marie Zeitouni, Normand Laprise and Josée Lortie at Le Cercle at HEC Montréal.

In the form of a round table moderated by Cyrille Sardais and Josée Lortie from HEC Montréal, the speakers delivered a wide range of stimulating reflections, drawing a parallel between the leadership of the chefs, whether orchestras or cooking.

The chiefs surprised and captured our attention through multiple themes: the importance of the progress of the team and the individual, humility and the notion of family, constancy, responsibility of the leader and companionship, even philosophy, to name a few.

The evening was crowned with the 2016 nomination for the first award in leadership case writing. The Chair paid tribute to Réal Jacob and Hatim Fassi-Fihri for writing their case ‘Youth Fusion’.
