The LSESU French society has decided to launch the first edition of the French Forum, a whole day conference which will take place at LSE on Saturday, 16th of March 2019.

The French Forum aims to bring together some of the most accomplished and inspirational contributors to France’s soft power; businessmen, entrepreneurs, academics, and politicians, to share their experience and knowledge in their respective fields.

The underlying theme of the Forum will be French Momentum with a focus on soft power. This topic was inspired by France topping the Soft Power 30 index in 2017, thus becoming the most influential nation in the world.

The conference will include individual speeches, panel discussions and 1-to-1 conversations.

We passionately believe in the power of ideas to challenge beliefs, change attitudes, and transform people’s lives.

Speakers will be released progressively over the next few weeks so stay tuned to discover who they are!

NOTE: If you are not an LSE student, you will need to create a “guest” account to purchase a ticket.
