Pinault cited perfectly sound business reasons for the rebranding – chief among them that only 5% of the group’s sales now come from France.

Hurtling through the icy tundra north of Tromso in Arctic Norway, with a team of six dogs in front of you and an awful lot of nothing all around, is perhaps not the first place you might choose to do a spot of business education.

When managing talent, you’re better off thinking like a hunter-gatherer than an economist.

Family businesses have a primal appeal. They’re as old as human history, and people have always worked and lived together in family groups. Why are they so successful? Evolutionary biology can shed some light on the question.
