30th Annual Dinner Meeting – Our guest of honor for the event was The Rt Hon David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (2010-2016), one of the most prominent global influencers of the early 21st Century. He led Britain’s first Coalition Government in nearly 70 years and, at the 2015 General Election, formed the first majority Conservative Government in the UK for over two decades.
The evening was a great success with over 1600 business and community leaders in attendance and supported by more than 116 corporate sponsors. Members and guests gathered to hear 30 minutes of remarks and 30 minutes of moderated conversation with Club Chair, Dick DeVos, as Mr. Cameron offered his perspective on principled leadership, Brexit, globalization, terrorism, the U.S. role in the global political landscape and more.
The invitation to Mr. Cameron for this event continues our tradition as a venue for some of the most influential thought leaders in the world.
