In January 2020, one year ago, we met the first six members of our Club in the beautiful Artima restaurant in Limassol. The innovative idea of the Club was to have private lunches and dinners in order to introduce to each other 6 people from 6 different industries each time. We also made sure that people at the table were of at least three different nationalities as we wanted to create a truly international spirit. Since that first lunch, the Business Club has had many other meetings, formal and informal.
In January 2021 we celebrate our first anniversary. This is an important milestone in the life of any organisation. The first year shows whether the concept was designed well, whether the action plan was correct, whether the members of this organisation are happy with its activities and leadership.
This entity is served to be a private club with the aim to provide a platform for leaders of the international business community of Cyprus to meet on a regular basis, arrange events, workshops, presentations, get-togethers, seminars, conferences. Together, we brainstorm innovative ideas and solutions, discuss inventions and progress on current and forthcoming developments, gain insight about the business community and news both about Cyprus and internationally.
Each member is invited to join personally by the President of the Club. The Club accepts 6 members per month from 6 different spheres of business. Only owners, founders, chairpersons, or CEOs are accepted as members of the Club.
