Havas Group Chairman and CEO Yannick Bolloré gets candid at this year's BPI France Inno Génération conference.

Centered on the theme “Tomorrow,” Havas Group Chairman and CEO Yannick Bolloré opened up to a room full of entrepreneurs about his anxiety in taking over the family business, his five words of advice for building a future-proof business, and how the Group’s “Together” strategy came out of an investor’s suggestion to sell the company.

“On my way back from London in the Eurostar, I did some serious thinking,” he said during his keynote address at last week’s BPI France Inno Génération conference in Paris. “And I remembered Charles Darwin and the theory of evolution. And I told myself, that’s it: Make the most of being strong and be able to adapt much faster than our competitors. This is when we decided to transform Havas.”
