One of the things we love to do is to connect people and to give businessmen and women, who share common business interests, new opportunities.
This could be the opportunity to get acquainted, share information, exchange business cards and perhaps even close a deal with each other. If possible, at the same time, we’d like to enrich their knowledge with some insights from businessmen or women who’ve already been there and done that. Well, why not?
To this end, we created the Lichi Business Forum, a business event that takes place every few months. It lasts a few hours and highlights a different international market each time.
The beginning was humble: our forum was launched in 2010 with a modest gathering held in a living-room and attended by a few business people. Most had business interests in the Asian market. From one meeting to the next, the forum expanded and the numbers outgrew the living-room.
The forum moved its venue to various auditoriums. We began inviting guest lecturers, with each session devoted to a different area of interest: business in China, India, Vietnam, etc., and anything related to the Asian business world.
A large part of each session was devoted to networking and getting to know other participants. This included self-presentation (including via the use of PowerPoint slideshows), ‘speed-dating’ style networking and long breaks for mingling.
The long, diverse list of lecturers includes business people who share their practical experience, academics and even politicians! (such as former Israeli Ambassador to China, H.E. Mr. Matan Vilnai).
After three years of sessions, dedicated almost entirely to the Asian business world, we extended the scope of the forum to include additional fields and regions of the world.
Meetings of the Lichi Business Forum take place every few months and are publicized through our mailing list.
