Yves de Talhouet, Special Advisor in charge of Summer University


“Put people back into the heart of the company.”

Feedback on the first Summer University conference series organised along with Pierre Gattaz was very positive. “On the first day, we had 3,600 entrepreneurs and almost 4,000 on the second day, which is more than in previous years,” says Yves de Talhouet. He already has a few ideas for the next Summer University. He wants to give entrepreneurs a louder voice. This University will also be a chance to do an initial review of the fledgling project “2020 - Make France a Winner.”

Companies in the city

Alongside this planning mission, Yves de Talhouet also intends to advise the president on a topic he is passionate about: companies in the city. For now, this mission is in the preliminary planning stages and will be an enormous undertaking. What is society's responsibility for companies? How should it portray itself? In what areas? The goal is to draw up recommendations to put people back at the heart of the company and the company at the heart of society. Yves de Talhouet will be talking about it internally. The objective is for the MEDEF to become a driving force for these ideas so these recommendations open a dialogue with the government.

Medef position on Brexit

The French and British economies are intricately linked. Our primary trade surplus is with the

United Kingdom. Around 400 000 French people work in the UK. Every sector, each individual

company, has specific and unique interests regarding Brexit. Everything possible must be done in

the forthcoming negotiation to avoid lessening the quality and the strength of this relationship.

French companies must continue to be able to trade with the UK without supplementary costs or

restrictions. A level playing field must be ensured so that French companies can continue to invest

and create jobs.
