Eighth Gathering of the Polish Business Club


Dear Members and Friends of the Polish Business Club in Jakarta.

At our last gathering we have been able to socialize and exchange experience within 36 professionals coming from 10 different countries, and 13 of them came for the first time.



As usually the atmosphere at the Eastern Promise was fantastic not only because of the delicious food and fantastic service but also because the manager, Lens Ter Wee, joined us for some time that evening.

Thank you Lens and your staff. I would like to thank also our sponsors for that night The Asian Tigers.

During that night we have managed to recruit our member no. 80 – Michael Olsson, a Swedish citizen who is the owner of the

BMOlsson Group in Indonesia,



and also one Polish member and one from UK.

As you know, we are trying to make our gathering a little bit different from the other clubs and associations not only by serving free flow of Wyborowa but also by organizing for you short presentations which would give you some extra knowledge about life in Indonesia and its unexpected daily attractions.

Those of you who are with us since September / October 2011 will probably remember presentations about Polish – Indonesian Trade Exchange, corruption, its types and methods, which can be sadly encountered while doing business in Indonesia, “ Lessons Learned ” about due diligence work and cheating on the CVs, “Water for Life” – drinking water in Jakarta and also “New Mystique Program “ delivered by the Ritz Carlton Kuningan.

This time Michael Sargent, an information security specialist, presented to us “ Managing the Weakest Link “ which was about the security of our computer systems at work.



People have enjoyed it and probably will implement his advice in their daily routines at work.

Talking about presentations, I would like to ask you all for participation in our gatherings by giving me some ideas for the next gathering presentation.

I know already when it is going to happen ( 15th of April / Monday ), on a day when the Polish Business Club together with the Trade & Investment Promotion Division of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Indonesia will host a group of representatives from the Warsaw School of Business and Sekolah Tinggih Manajemen.



I will keep you informed about future happenings related to our activities.
