The Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc in New York

The day before yesterday, 90 guests gathered in New York to present and celebate the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc. Christine Lagarde (longtime Rallye supporter and president of the Rallye's Ethics Committee from 2009 to 2011) came to express her admiration for the Rallye and the performance of the women who take part.

She lauded the quality of the competition as well as the Rallye's charitable works and the many steps it has made to protect the environment.

Dominique Serra was moved and proud to welcome the guests to this event, which paid tribute to the host country of Morococ, the mythical land where Gazelles from around the world come to experience a fantastic adventure.

Notable guests included Mardochée Devico, CEO of Aïcha, Chakib Ghadaoui from the Moroccan National Tourist Office in New York, and Hassan Safraoui from Celliers de Meknès.  A number of former and future Gazelles, sponsors and media were also in attendance.

It was a lively evening enjoyed by all.

Special thanks to Aïcha, the Moroccan National Tourist Office, Les Celliers de Meknès, R20 and Cœur de Gazelles for making the evening possible.

The Rallye in the spotlight with Gan Assurances

On October 9, close to 2,500 Gan Assurances employees and insurance brokers - a historic first! - came together at the Carrousel du Louvre for a plenary session on the theme: "Projections for the Future" (*)
This exceptional day was a perfect opportunity to turn the spotlight on the company's main partners. Dominique Serra (for the Rallye des Gazelles) and Marina Vrillacq (for Coeur de Gazelles) spoke about their relationship with Gan Assurances, and were warmly thanked for their implication in the projects that Gan Assurances has been supporting for almost 6 years.
For the past two years, Gan Assurances has sent two teams of employees to the Rallye; three teams will compete in the 2016 edition.

(*) Participants took a look at the company's evolution over the past 15 years, and had a glimpse of the future with major project projections until the year 2020: adapting to progress, new modes of consumption, and meeting the expectations of tomorrow's clients, with the support of the men and women of Gan Assurances.

Gazelles at HEC Paris

Bravo to all the courageous Gazelles who rose to the challenge and embraced a new approach to finding sponsors: that of getting sponsors to buy in, rather than selling themselves!
Thank you for your active participation in this workshop, which we could easily have continued for a second day!
I wish you all the best of luck: for you the Rallye has already begun, and the dunes of sponsorship are shifting in the wind! Be sure to set the right course!

I'm sure I will see you all in Essaouira!
Once a Gazelle, always a Gazelle!
