On February 9, 2017, FACC-Michigan was proud to host its first Young Professionals Mixer with guest speaker Ms. Françoise Colpron, President of Valeo North America, at Triple Nickel restaurant in Birmingham, Michigan. Approximately 50 members of the French-American business community gathered to listen to Ms. Colpron share her experience and career growth within Valeo from General Counsel to President. She offered various tips for success based on what she has seen and done at Valeo, including having an open mind, being entrepreneurial and willing to take measured risks, working with diverse people and teams who bring varied ideas and suggestions for improvement to the table, and learning to change and adapt to keep up with the rapidly-evolving world we live in today.
Thereafter, Ms. Colpron opened the floor for Q&A and engaged in an interactive dialogue with attendees who posed many interesting questions. Everyone finished the evening enjoying rich networking and mingling over appetizers and beverages.
FACC-Michigan would like to thank Ms. Françoise Colpron and Valeo North America for their valuable participation and support of our association. We would also like to thank our venue host, Triple Nickel, for welcoming our members and network in their swanky second floor West Deck space overlooking downtown Birmingham.
