One of the best things about being a member of JCI is the opportunity to have new experiences and to do something really different.
On Tuesday 28 May I and two fellow JCI Portsmouth members were up at the crack of dawn to board a flight to Nice. Why? We were off the JCI European Conference in Monaco. The conference was a complete sell-out with 2,749 young professionals in one city.
Upon arriving into Nice, we were whisked away to another part of the airport to board another flight. This time, it was a helicopter which took us directly into the heart of Monte Carlo. I was sat at the front of the helicopter and I loved every second of that 7 minute journey! We arrived into Monaco in style that day.
The conference was simply amazing. You have the opportunity to meet fellow UK delegates – all 80 of them no less and all from different parts of the UK, plus you get to meet so many keen, enthusiastic and fun people.
During the day you get to attend lots of different training sessions or workshops aimed at helping you improve yourself and to learn new skills. At night, the parties start around 9pm and go on to the late hours of the morning. There is usually an after-after-party somewhere to go to and meet more people if you have the energy! Check out the photos from the conference.
If you have not yet experienced a JCI European Conference I urge you to try one and you won’t look back. The 2014 conference is in Malta and it’s by the sea with promised sun and heat, too. Check out the JCI European Conference in Malta.
