May 2019 - CEO Clubs Newsletter

Dear friends,

First of all, Hristos a inviat! I really hope you had a great Easter holiday (and still have perhaps) and took some time to push the brake, disconnect and enjoy what’s really important in life, other than work.  
 
On our last run to the end of June, where our Speakers’ Events schedule for the 1st Half is completed. Many good meetings till then and we are expecting you all there to share your knowledge and learn something new together.
 
May

We begin with our Circle on May 8th, where a true Punk-Rock Psychologist, Mugur Ciumageanu, will share with us stories and a lifetime theory on authenticity and the narrative of the self, and will share with all of us how a leader can maximize his/her influence by tapping on these realizations of “what” comes from “where”. Mugur is a true delight and has mesmerized us last year when he spoke for our Next Gen Members. Not to be missed!
 
We will close the month with our favorite discussion on a proposed TED talk. We already have received many proposals and will send you the details about this Breakfast for Thought in a few days.        
 
Meanwhile, on May 19th, we will be flying to Singapore where Google Asia Pacific will host us for a day full of learning on the latest market trends and developments. With 4 more days for fun and sightseeing, that will be the farthest we have traveled together since our Club was founded.  
 
June

In June, the time comes for our long-expected come back of Gerd Leonhard as the Keynote Speaker of our Forum on June 10th. Gerd, accompanied by Peter Vander Auwera, will help us wander through the society of tomorrow, its ethics, its political systems and anything else that may lie there. Technology is disrupting everything and that is already old news. What lies ahead is what we will try to figure out. Gerd’s last appearance at the 2016’s CEO Clubs Forum changed the course of many organizations lead by our Members and contributed to them becoming the market protagonists they are today and will continue being tomorrow.
 
On the morning of the same day, an affiliate company organizes a half-day workshop with Gerd on the future of work and how to get better prepared for the new era. CEO Clubs, Next Gen and the Owners Club are supporting the event and offer special prices for their Members’ people. More details here - Brilliant Irony.
 
On June 25th we are organizing the next episode of “The Executive Summary” and we will announce soon the topic and the speakers.
 
Last but not least, on June 28th we will have our last Breakfast for Thought.
 
NEW EXTRA EVENT (for boys)!!!: In partnership with Sportshub and FCSB, 30 of us will have the chance to relive their childhood dream and become professional footballers for 3 days! The first 30 to apply, after we send out the invitation, will sign a 3 days professional agreement with FCSB and will spend 3 days at the Club’s training center (we will sleep, eat, train, practice and play THERE!!!). We will arrive there on Friday, June 7th and will return home on Sunday 9th. Ticket/person €400. All proceeds will go to charities. Are you ready for this??? Applications to open soon!
 
July  
    
July is the month when we usually go social and relax. Enough learning… Just fun!
 
17th of July we are organizing our Open Air Cinema Night, where you can enjoy with your significant others a good movie under the starry sky. Nespresso, TIFF and Lacerta wine will help us make this night an even better one!
 
On July 8th, our cruise begins and this time we are visiting a beautiful complex of islands called “the small Cyclades”. We will start from Paros and will end our cruise back there. A must see!
 
After that, we will leave you in peace but for no more than a month. We will be back (with Schwarzenegger’s voice). And that is a threat! : )
 
Let’s have a great month ahead!
