The 7th Global Partners Meeting since the foundation of AltoPartners took place in Madrid on June 14th and 15th. It was also the 10th anniversary of Leaders Trust España’s establishment, whose team hosted us for this important event.
My special thanks to Sara Bieger and her team, who have worked hard to put this all together, and have brought a lot of fun and creativity. Among many nice moments, the closing Gala Dinner, in the Madrid Hipodromo (horse racetrack) was particularly impressive and pleasant.
There, we could celebrate the three winners of the Best Exporter Challenge (Albert’s Cup) for 2011: 1 - United Kingdom; 2 - France; 3 - Spain.
Since the last Global Meeting in Jaipur, AltoPartners has grown up dramatically: five new countries have joined the alliance in 2011-2012: the USA, Canada, Finland, Austria and South Africa. AltoPartners is now operating from 45 cities in 29 countries, and our global revenue reaches almost 50 M€.
Indeed this new deal and robustness should help us face the tough times we anticipate, as it did during 2008-2009 crisis.
The agenda of the meeting addressed all aspects of this exceptional change: strategy, new charter, business guidelines, practices development, circulation of information, marketing,…
The Partners have made the folowing resolutions:
- to continue the geographic expansion
- to adapt the Practice organisation in order to have a closer coverage of all economic sectors
- to increase the visibility and promotion of AltoPartners brand
