The seed for Greater was sowed in The Great Room, which came to be to meet the need for a more holistic space to do business. But a physical space alone wouldn’t answer the calls of an audience hungry for knowledge and meaningful connections. Greater was born to be more than a business club, bringing leaders together to grow personally and professionally.
A Greater Beginning
The Greater membership club was launched in April 2022. At our launch event, we showcased what it means to be a part of the Greater community – a place where you learn and grow alongside business leaders, industry experts and pioneers.
From social advocacy to green architecture, we delved into the trends that are shaping the future world view.
