Earlier this year our forum was lucky enough to have its retreat was based in Manilla ( Philippines).
Whilst we had an enriching forum experience, and an amazing day of an amazing race in Manilla, the highlight for me was connecting with the local Philippine EO chapter 3 times. Once at a rooftop bar opening, once for a learning event/ evening meal, and once at a long brunch where we met with another forum to share our experiences across our diverse cultures and landscapes.
This is the hidden knockout punch that EO delivers, unrivalled access to understanding real challenges and benefits in different countries. Having access to the best contacts in the business world in those countries to assess any Global opportunity that arises is a necessity given that we all operate in a world that increasingly has no boundaries.
