Malta hosted the first ever Vistage EMEA Summit, that saw 50 CEOs and business owners from seven countries learning, connecting and networking to increase cooperation between their businesses and their countries. Speakers included Neil Harris, Sustainability Strategy and Innovation lead at Amazon Web Services and his colleague David Cavenor, Senior Manager of the AWS Digital Innovation Team, who explained how Amazon teams work on innovation, sustainability, giving the participants insights into how they could run similar practices in their companies. Neil and David spent the whole conference with the participants, sharing their ideas and insights over meals and breakout sessions. We also had Steve Stivala, Associate Director at KPMG Malta, who shared his insights into the economy and the changes we expect to see over the coming months, and how our behaviour as leaders shape our decisions and influence the economy.
Vistage releases the CEO Confidence Index quarterly in partnership with The Malta Chamber to highlight this further.
Nathan Farrugia from Malta and the other Vistage country owners presented various sessions on personal development, industry specifics and leadership trends, while participants discussed their organisational issues in order to help shed light on possible solutions. Perhaps different to most conferences, the Vistage members actually work on problem solving direct participants issues in close-knit groups throughout the weekend.
It wasn’t just work however. Participants played golf at the Royal Malta Golf Club, visited Mdina, Valletta and Birgu by night, and enjoyed the grounds at the San Anton Gardens, as they stayed at the peaceful Corinthia Palace Hotel in Attard.
The next VISTAGE EMEA summit will be moving to another country next year, yet to be announced. If you are a CEO or business owner in Malta and want to join VISTAGE, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org or visit vistage.com
