La Experiencia

 

En las reuniones de GRI no hay conferencistas, ni presentaciones. En su lugar, tenemos una selección de discusiones, a puerta cerrada, donde todos participan. Es muy parecida a una conversación en la intimidad de la sala de tu casa, un ambiente muy dinámico que te permite relacionarte de una manera natural y coloquial con colegas de negocios. En un ambiente interactivo e inclusivo organizamos reuniones con altos directivos provenientes de empresas internacionales y locales de infraestructura, inversionistas, holdings de concesiones y entidades financieras. De esta manera los participantes pueden identificar rápidamente a los potenciales socios de negocio, comenzar a construir relaciones claves, y seguir la conversación después.
