Sophisticated Bermuda
Young execs find adventure & culture in a European-inspired paradise
Planner: Emilie Samet
Co-Chair, Young Presidents'
Organization Southern 7 Fall
Chapter Meeting

W

here do you take a group of
young execs with a sense of
adventure? For the Young
Presidents' Organization (YPO) Southern 7
Chapter, that would be Bermuda.
The YPO network is made up of
more than 23,000 business leaders in 130
countries, all of which are under 50, are the
chief operator (or president) of a company,
and were accepted into the network before
turning 45. While the group is well traveled,
many attendees had never visited Bermuda
and were blown away by all it had to offer,
according to Emilie Samet, co-chair of the
event. "Bermuda offers the tropical feel
of other island destinations and has the
sophistication of European influences and
downtown Hamilton," says Samet. "It's safe
to say [there's no place] like Bermuda."
About 160 attendees and their spouses
participated in the meeting's educational
sessions. "[The group] doesn't just come
together for business development, but for
personal development, to learn about health
and wellness, as well as business," says
Samet. "The philosophy behind it is that 'as
better people, we're better business leaders.'"

The country's leader (or premier)
attended the opening night event to
welcome the group, tell them about the
history of Bermuda and give insight into
what was happening on the island. The
evening continued with a traditional dancing
demonstration by the Gombey dancers
and music played by a children's steel pan
band. "A Taste of Bermuda," with seafood
chowder and British cuisines, rounded out
the cultural experience.
Between meetings, attendees were
encouraged to sign up for activities that
explored the more active elements of the
island. Samet remembers three activities
that stood out for the attendees. One
involved repelling into a cave located on the
Rosewood property, while another involved
either jet skiing or taking a catamaran
around the island to some of the various
cliff-jumping spots-some that were 40 to
50 ft high. Attendees also had the option to

"Bermuda offers the tropical feel of other

of European influences."

Full Sail Ahead
At the recently renovated Rosewood
Bermuda, the theme of the event was
"Go Full Sail," playing off the island's sailing
influence and the fact that it recently hosted
the America's Cup. The overall goal of the
meeting, however, was for members to "let
their sail up and experience all that they
could," according to Samet. "We brought
in speakers that could push them in the
way of business and personal development
and health, and provided opportunities that
allowed them to explore Bermuda, which
included a lot of adventurous activities to
get them out of their comfort zones."

experience a regatta (or sailing race) at the
exclusive Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, where
sailing specialists split the group into teams
to compete in a race that culminated in an
awards ceremony.
"Sailing from the Royal Bermuda Yacht
Club is a big deal, not only because it is
exclusive and boasts a rich maritime history,
but it also puts you in the heart of Hamilton
harbor where there is great energy and many
other boats coming and going," says Samet.
The group loved the island so much
that some attendees were looking at real
estate at the airport before their flight home,
according to Samet, who shared yet one
more reason to return to the island. The
airport does customs on the Bermuda side,
so when attendees arrived back in the US,
they didn't have to go through the lengthy
process.-Jessie Fetterling
