L'Experience Transformatrice d'Alain Brunet

Thu, 2016-09-29 11:44

Employé de la Société des alcools du Québec (SAQ) depuis 35 ans, Alain Brunet a gravi les échelons un à un jusqu’au sommet. Déterminé à ne jamais stagner, il est retourné sur les bancs d’école en 1997 pour suivre un programme accéléré d’administration de l’entreprise à HEC Montréal. « C’est un programme conçu pour les gens dans l’action. Il m’a permis de prendre du recul, après une dizaine d’années comme gestionnaire. J’ai toujours été ouvert à l’idée de me former davantage. J’aime apprendre. Ça alimente ma vie ! », dit-il.
