The next edition of the Octave Program will be held from Tuesday March 31st to Thursday April 2nd 2015


Change across the generations


The 2012 edition as if you were there…

Octave Program...

The Octave Program was created through the intention to better understand the company’s transformation and to allow both young people and seniors to play a full and beneficial role in the company.

Octave, because the company is like a piano, whose two central octaves are played (the generations of 30 – 50 year-olds in power), while the lower and higher octaves tend to be disregarded. For the first time, a seminar has been designed to bring all generations together and to take into account the impact that new technologies have on organizations.


The 2014 edition... if you were there!


This is, once again, with pleasure and in the sharing that more than 180 international participants and 20 speakers had this three days seminar on the theme “intergenerational at digital era”. The 2014 Octave Program has delighted by the quality of its content, its exceptional environment near Geneva’s lake and a communicative cheerfulness. All this positivity enabled everyone to discover, learn and exchange in order to share this knowledge and “best practices” within the companies that we have had the pleasure to welcome this year: Danone, Airbus Group, L’Oréal, GDF Suez, Orange and Société Générale.
