Led by a vision to build the world’s most influential community of entrepreneurs, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization or EO, which counts successful CEOs as members, has planned exciting sessions of ‘In The Boardroom’, an intimate gathering of members which features leading speakers who share their experience of leading their organisations. EO’s annual learning survey found that members preferred smaller events where participants could engage more closely with the speakers. Responding to the request and in compliance with post-lockdown health and safety guidelines, In The Boardroom will feature smaller gatherings of 18-20 participants at each session which will be ‘Forum Confidential’, which simply means that whatever is said in the room, stays in the room, which gives speakers a greater confidence and comfort to share their full breadth of experience.
In The Boardroom offers an opportunity for EO members to get up close and personal with business icons of Sri Lanka, such as Kasturi Chellaraja Wilson, Group CEO of Hemas; Shiromal Cooray, Chairman of Jetwing Hotels; Suresh Shah, CEO of Lion Brewery; Dumith Fernando, Chairman of Asia Securities and Colombo Stock Exchange; and Deepal Sooriyaarachchi, Former MD of Aviva NDB Insurance. The speaker will give a speech about their journey in life and business to where they are today, including their biggest learnings. This will be followed by a moderated discussion and then a question and answer session. The format of In The Boardroom event is new to EO Sri Lanka’s learning calendar of transformative events although it is common in overseas EO chapters.
