In a tribute to the families who have given Malta some of its foremost entrepreneurs and the country’s leading business names, the Malta Chamber celebrated what it considers the beating heart of the economy – family businesses.
Titled ‘A Family Affair – Safeguarding Malta and Europe’s Beating Heart’, the national conference was headlined by world-class international speakers as well as some of Malta’s leading household names.
As the year comes to a close, the Chamber looks back on this event and the speakers who shared their thoughts and vision with the audience who packed the hall at the Chamber on 1st October.
International names Ferrero R&D Chief Briano Olivares, Buffa Founder Paolo Buffa, and Grimaldi Lines Director Eugenio Grimaldi addressed the conference, as they were joined by Mr Joseph Zammit Tabona from Infinitely Xara, Ms Denise Xuereb from AX Group and Mr Benjamin Tabone Grech from Engel & Völkers Sara Grech.
The speakers shared their experiences running some of the world’s most recognisable business brands, and how they managed to reinvent themselves to maintain and consolidate their market share.
The event was led by Deputy President David Xuereb and featured addresses by the Hon Minister Christian Cardona, as well as officials from Bank of Valletta plc, HSBC Bank Malta plc and RSM Malta, together with Dr Nadine Lia from the Family Business Office.
