ESCP Europe, French Chamber Intercultural Trophy Winners 2015, hand over the prize to Boulle International and win Cross-Cultural Quiz

ESCP Europe Business School handed over the prestigious French Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain's Franco-British Intercultural Trophy to property search firm Boulle International at a ceremony and quiz evening at PwC's headquarters in London on the 14th January.

The trophy, designed by Cartier, graced ESCP Europe's campus in London for the past year. Any sadness at having to hand it over was made up for by representatives from the School being part of the winning table (named 'Oh La La!') at the Cross-cultural Quiz, hosted by intercultural management expert (and guest lecturer at ESCP Europe) Peter Alfandary

Some 110 guests from a range of companies, including EDF Energy, AXA, Maison Maïlle, Veolia, PwC and Vinci Construction put their heads together to answer questions on French and British culture, literature and history.
The ESCP Europe members of team (pictured) were UK Director Simon Mercado, Faculty Dean Beatrice Collin, former UK Director and Marketing Professor, Chris Halliburton, and Director of Academic Quality & Student Services, Florence Mele.
