THE EXECUTIVES' ASSOCIATION OF GREAT BRITAIN
CREATING BUSINESS TOGETHER SINCE 1929
The EAGB exists to help each other. If that sounds like a philosophy you can support, come to a meeting.
Meet other business leaders in a relaxed but professional environment to forge the relationships that will help you to grow personally and professionally.
After more than two decades of meeting at The Dorchester on Park Lane, we pleased to announce our move to 10 Trinity Square, the Four Seasons Hotel near The Tower of London.
Please join us for our first meeting in our beautiful new home.
We know how hard it is to enter a room where you don't know anybody so we make it easier for you.
Renee Wallen will be our host this month. As well as getting us all talking, she'll be giving some ideas of how to make the most of meeting new people.
