Business Diplomats & Executives Lunch Valencia
Tuesday 20 October, The Westin Valencia
The Netherlands hosted the Global Entrepreneurship Summit from 3-5 June 2019 in The Hague. To enhance the output of the GES summit a conceptual model to boost the cooperation among nations and societies around the world through entrepreneurship and innovation was created, by means of an Excellencies & Executives dinner.  

The event in The Netherlands was a splendid success, attended by H.E. Mrs. Sigrid Kaag, Dutch Minister of International Trade and Development Cooperation, together with 45 Ambassadors and 280 executives and entrepreneurs from 88 countries.

Spanish companies are currently surpassing their EU peers in finding ways to international markets. Besides the advantageous position in Latin America, there are many opportunities in Europe, Africa and Asia.

Since Valencia is developing very well as a base or hub for international business, we have decided to organise an Business Diplomats & Executives Dinner in Valencia as well. The concept will be the same with Valencia based consuls to head the tables.

Date: 20 October 2020– Location: The Westin Valencia


18:00 – 19:45
Executives will brainstorm in a Masterclass of their choice:

Entrepreneurial Economy Societies – Prof.Dr. Dewanand Mahadew
The transformation of the industrial economy to an entrepreneurial economy is affecting nations and societies around the world in many ways. More than ever before, there are opportunities for local communities to become integrated in (global) value chains, thanks to technological advancements. Technology is driving globalisation of the world towards a new era, characterised by mass-customisation, co-creation and co-innovation. Topics include entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, entrepreneurial economy, economical dynamics and 21st century skills

Value Proposition (re)Design – Rob van Nes MBA CIBDE
During this Masterclass, Rob van Nes uses The Wheel of Value, which he developed and published in his book of the same name, to discuss why value propositions are extremely vulnerable to disruption and why they are not obviously relevant in new (foreign) markets, as well as models how to effectively redevelop the value proposition.

19:45 –20:30
Reception of the Ambassadors and guests not attending the Masterclasses

4-courses dinner with interactive sessions between Ambassadors and Executives.
Each table will be headed by one of the Excellencies. After an introduction about the business opportunities in their country the ambassador will moderate the discussion between executives about their experiences and questions.

The executives will shift to another table of their choice. The previous cycle of information exchange will be repeated.

After 22:30
Free seating & informal networking
