Saying goodbye to Monaco

Sunday was a day to visit the highlights of Monaco.

Gala Night at the Café de Paris

The gala night in Monaco has to be some special and JCI Gala Night was fantastic. This Gala was held at the Café de Paris, just in front of the famous Monte Carlo Casino.

It was a night of glamour and enjoyment, finished in the famous Monte Carlo disco Jimmy Z.

General Assembly at work

Representatives of 30 countries meet in Monaco to work together to define the future of JCI Europe. Cracow was elected as the site of the next EPM in 2008.

There were exiting presentations of the EC 2007 in Maastricht, EC 2008 in Turku and World Congress in Antalya in November 2007.

The great new was that Robbie Williams, yes that one, will be performing at the welcome party in Maastricht.

So see you in Maastricht, where I will be giving training in Networking, Self-Knowledge and you will find me as JCI Presenter assistant trainer.

The “Invasion” of France

A small but strong group of Greek, Turkish and Portuguese decide to “invade” France between breakfast and General Assembly.

It was a swift operation, it start leaving the headquarters hotel (Le Meridien Beach Plaza) and walking 200 meters to the right, arriving to French territory and making the traditional conquers photo.

Friday Night is Party Night in Monaco

A great reception at one of the most hip places in Monaco, three words define the night we had the opportunity enjoy: FUN, FUN and FUN!!!!

A true Monegasque evening

JCI Monaco provide to all delegates a traditional Monegasque evening with a fabulous experience of local cuisine and a walk trough medieval Monaco finishing at the Prince’s palace where the “traditional” photo with World President and Secretary General was made.

First day of work

The emphasis of the first day of work was how to increase membership using as benchmarking JCI Switzerland, which is, with out any doubt, an example to follow.

The greatest arrival in Monaco

Arriving in Monaco by helicopter is one in a life time experience. JCI Monaco exceeds it self in giving the opportunity to all delegates to go from Nice airport and Monaco in a six minutes trip with a stunning view of the French Riviera.
