    Transforming Novartis Culture: Inspired, Curious, Unbossed
    November 29, 2018

    With the appointment of the new Novartis CEO Vas Narasimhan in February 2018, culture transformation has been defined as the strategic priority number one, critically enabling delivery on the other company priorities, such as breakthrough innovation, operational execution, data/ digital leadership and trust & reputation. Steven Baert, the Novartis Global Head of HR, will share his perspective on the Novartis journey with focus on the company’s cultural transformation. An apéro riche will follow. This Swiss INSEAD Healthcare club event begins with a guided tour of the Novartis Campus with buildings of several renowned architects, including F. Gehry, T. Ando, Herzog & de Meuron. The event is open to Alumni from Insead, Harvard, IMD and guests and is free of charge thanks to Novartis.
