Chamber staff spent a day away from their desks, this week, to contribute their views and ideas on the future of the Chamber. The fruitful discussion provided management with valuable insights on the operation of the Chamber from the individuals who run the show on a daily basis.
Perit David Xuereb, Chamber President spoke about the ambitious restructuring plan currently taking place at the Chamber, and emphasised the significance of change in order to keep up with the ever-shifting economic scenario of the country, for the benefit of the members of the Chamber.
Director General, Kevin J Borg then presented an overview of the restructuring plan. Mr Borg underlined the importance of an open discussion, featuring the participation of as many individuals as possible, for the process to be a successful one.
Board of Management member Liz Barbaro Sant also joined the discussion and gave a presentation about her first-hand experience dealing with leading European Chambers in Dublin and London.
A group discussion followed during which the staff had the opportunity to provide their thoughts and feedback. Ideas were put forward by the staff members themselves relating to the needed changes that would equip the organisation with the necessary tools and infrastructure, to better serve its members in the years to come.
The day then proceeded with a tour of the Malta Maritime Museum, and was followed by historical lunch at the same venue. The lunch comprised of a menu of dishes made from 200-year-old recipes which were rediscovered from records from the times of the Knights, and made with specially sourced ingredients for the purpose.
