HBLF 25th Anniversary Week
The Hungarian Business Leaders Forum has come to a significant milestone this year, celebrating its 25th anniversary. HBLF was founded by the personal support of HRH the Prince of Wales in 1992. HRH Prince Charles initiative was joined by 11 visionary business leaders. Our mission is the same since the foundation, namely, to encourage companies to integrate corporate and social responsibility and the principles of sustainable development into the everyday business practice.
During the HBLF 25th Anniversary Week (October 9-13, 2017) we organized several professional programs for the business, public and civil sector representatives to summarize the past 25 years successes, lessons learned. In partnership with our members and stakeholders, we would like to use this opportunity to identify the focus and activities for the next decades to come.
The 25th Anniversary Reception was the flagship event of the Anniversary Week. During the Jubilee Week, we organized high-level occasions, such as, an Extraordinary HBLF Summit at the Constitutional Court hosted by President Tamás Sulyok; an Exclusive CEO Forum at the invitation of Minister János Lázár in the Parliament; an occasion for the 202020 Club members at the Canadian Embassy included with the EU Diversity Charter Signatory Event hosted by HE Isabelle Poupart, Ambassador of Canada. The transparency work stream organized a conference titled “In the Web of Business Relationships,” and the sustainability work stream held an event titled ‘Europe Ambition 2030’, hosted by Dr. Gyula Bándi, Ombudsman for Future Generations. The diversity work stream organized an unconscious bias training for c-level executives. During the Jubilee Week, HMA Iain Lindsay held a celebration dinner for HBLF.
