2016 has been a year full of important meetings for business leaders, and the events organised by the Executive Club enjoyed great interest among the representatives of leading Polish companies. “We are constantly growing. Currently the Club brings together over 180 companies from different industries. We try to meet the expectations of our members and, apart from well proven solutions, we always try to come up with new initiatives. 2016 was an exceptionally good year with its highly successful international event, European Executive Forum,” said Beata Radomska, CEO of Executive Club. Another conference year was opened by the 7th edition of ‘Polish Infrastructure’, which was attended by the largest representatives of the sector from Poland and abroad.
The year also saw the “Investment Forum & Private Equity Awards Gala” take place for the 7th time. The most distinguished representatives of the investment market sector debated the future of the industry, perspectives for the foreign expansion of Polish companies, and effective cooperation between banks, investors, and law firms. The conference part of the event was opened by prof. Dariusz Rosati, and prestigious “Private Equity Diamonds” winners included Innova Capital, Wirtualna Polska and home.pl.
The Club also organises meetings during which representatives of Polish and foreign enterprises discuss the challenges faced by management today. The industry-oriented subject matter of the meetings enables the development of solutions applicable in various areas of the work of top management staff and speeches are given by some of the finest specialists in the field. This year, two club meetings took place that focused on innovative and entrepreneurial Poland.
At the first, the debate concerned the lack of adjustment of the Polish educational system to the needs of modern business. Moreover, the members of Executive Club had the opportunity to meet in a select group and talk about the directions for Polish companies during the Economic Forum in Krynica.
The Executive Club’s main event of the year was the 4th edition of the two-day international “European Executive Forum” Congress, entitled “Age of Innovations”, and was devoted to the subject of leadership and innovation in Europe. Among the special guests were prof. Patrick Barwise from the London Business School, Chris Lowney, economist and writer, former Jesuit and managing director of JP Morgan, and Paddy Miller, professor at IESE Business School.
