VISION

IN everything we do we believe in creating meaningful relationships - we believe in celebrating what makes each of us unique and bridging gaps.

We do this by designing experiences that bring bright minds together to help them build meaningful relations. We connect the dots between individuals and businesses understanding what makes them tick. We believe in the power of the relationship in an era of digitalisation.

We are the essence of global leadership; we are minds connected shaping the future; together, we generate economic growth, we move economies.

Being a leader is having the ability to translate ideas into attitudes, transform thoughts into new projects, bring the future to the present, forge new paths where they don't exist. That's leadership, that's your GRI Club.

PRIVATE WHATSAPP GROUP

GRI Committees use a dedicated WhatsApp group to keep in touch with industry leaders. Topics are restricted to business and this can be a great tool to make the most of our special network.
RUNNING OUR COMMITTEES

OUR Committees eMeetings will also have one of our members moderating the discussion (Chairperson). In the absence of the chairperson, one of the 2 vice-chairs will ensure the conversation is fluid and everyone can join.
