European Hub Meeting 2017 Summary

The European Hub 2017 meeting held in Dublin on Thursday 6th pm July and Friday 7th am proved very successful - both in the learning, the interactions and the social events.  We had 31 meeting attendees and 8 partners - from a total of 15 countries.  The European Hub meeting was held in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road with the CMC-Global Executive meeting there on the Thursday morning.

The European Hub meeting was chaired effectively and entertainingly by Jan Willem Kradolfer with videos used to both reinforce the key messages and hold the attention.  

The first day started with updates on the CMC Firm and APCO Erasmus projects by Jan Willem and Cesara Pasini respectively.  Poul Gobel then outlined successes to date in the European Management School Program.  The day finished with a review of issues here and in the Constantinus Award.

The second day started with an overview on the International Conference by Kim Karme followed with a presentation on migration of Netherlands ROA ACPs to CMC Firms by Ronald Van Rijn.  The rest of the morning comprised updates from Sorin Caian, Dwight Mihalicz and Reema Nasser on Executive matters, and by Jeremy Webster and Robert Bodenstein on the AMCC and ISO 20700 projects respectively.  Elena Yuzkova then gave a fascinating glimpse of the attractions of the Ukraine as next year’s venue.

 A dinner on Thursday evening at 1592 Room, Trinity College Dublin was preceded by a guided tour of the campus and a whimsical history of the College’s development.  After dinner Noelle O’Connor, Director of European Movement Ireland spoke on European developments followed by an interesting Q&A session.   Many then repaired to a near-by hostelry to relax with some Irish music and dancing.  It was a busy and enjoyable evening, with the weather kind for the tour and walks between venues.

"The event highlighted that the CMC designation for management consultants is a jewel. Being professional and ethical, matters everywhere." - Sorin Caian, CMC
