For people who are not familiar with JCI, it is the Junior Chamber International. It is a global organization that encourages young people to improve their leadership skills. An annual membership is £96 (£8/month). There are guest lectures, social events, a public speaking and debating academy and national conventions.
My wife introduced me to JCI London and after speaking to a couple of their members, I realised it was a good place to improve myself. It would also be the perfect place to meet like-minded people and entrepreneurs of the future.
Since joining, I am talking with a couple of directors about organizing events combined with social media and location based networks like Foursquare. Having organized a few events recently that proved to be a big success, I am confident I can raise the bar at JCI and do some great things.
Maybe I will find business partners and follow in the footsteps of famous pioneers (Howard Hughes and Bill Clinton have been members).
