The AIC runs very successful forums at which selected company CEOs can exchange views and opinions with eminent personalities on political, business and socio-economic issues. Public figures such as Swiss President Pascal Couchepin,
Jean-Pierre Roth, President of the Swiss National Bank, Nicholas Negroponte, Stéphane Garelli, Xavier Comptesse, Claude Béglé, Professor Xavier Oberson and just recently Tibère Adler have been recent guests at these meetings.
CEO Forum 2014
Mr. Tibère Adler, the new head of Avenir Suisse, was welcomed at the offices of Edmond Rothschild in downtown Geneva on November 6, 2014 for an intense day of discussion, highlighted by a comprehensive overview of Geneva as a place of business and pleasure and accompanied by a delicious working luncheon. Exchanging views candidly with a public of some 25 senior business representatives, international civil servants and interested individuals from the American International Club of Geneva, Mr. Adler acknowledged the negatives affecting Geneva – for example, the high cost of living and the heavy car traffic. At the same time, he noted the impressive assets that Geneva enjoys, including its political stability, its privileged location as host of so many international organizations, and its unique physical setting near to the major centers of commerce and trade.
