Cranes Club Europe: 2020 dinner in Paris

BY INOË  ANDRÉ, Cranes Club Europe


The 3rd Cranes Club Dinner in Paris aimed at inspiring people to improve their career and at the same time create more space for networking. There are always new participants that can always receive a presentation of Cranes Club and then know more about it. Such an event provides time and space to explain more about Cranes Club, promote all events happening in Europe and advertise coming events. Ultimately giving visibility to Cranes Club.

This dinner was held on January 18th 2020, at Espace Barrault in Paris and was attended by some 17 professionals. Many participants have a high standard academic level : engineers, doctors (PhD), one head of company. All things considered, networking session, the speaker and the dinner proved impactful, with participants rating the overall success of the event at a peak of 8.83 with 9 voters among 17 participants and some are willing to support Cranes Club.

Here was the planning of the event :

  • 17:30 : Registration

You can find more information on the speakers below.

I am very grateful that Dr Bellow and Mrs Ciacciarelli were inspired to give their message. Their thinking mixed with personal experience could really motivated people to work on themselves so that they can improve their career and their view on the society. I am also very grateful to Takayuki Wada because he supported me in the whole process of organizing it and giving ideas and conducting the event very well while being physically weak. Everyone participated wonderfully to create a harmonious, hopeful and joyful atmosphere.

I hope this event could give birth to the excitation to participate to the coming AGM April 2020 and that many people will want to go there.


The participants liked the mood, the testimony and the dinner. The messages were impactful for daily life practices. Teriyuki Wada’s menu (miso soup, yakisoba, ice cream) were indeed always noted as a point that went greatly during the event.

Missing points:

  • Lack of ice-cream.
  • Speakers had too many slides
  • Lack of conclusion/sum up after sharing time.

In all feedback forms, participants would recommend Cranes Club to a friend and agreed on the  fact they learn something new.
