EO Turkeys season of abundance

The last season, starting from the autumn of 2016 and lasted until the season closing party on May, passed pretty fast for EO Turkey because there were many topics on our agendas. On the fifth year anniversary of EO Turkey, the number of family members reached 44 with 9 new members just in one term. We are happy to grow bigger with them, Timuçin Oğün, Ali Ağan, Bekir Aktaş, Ebru Arikan, Ahmet Faik Bitlis, Okan Arikan, Doruk Uslu, Gürkan Karagöz, Sibel Engin, all valuable and inspiring people.


This season, EO Turkey members again had the opportunity to improve themselves with EO benefits such as forums, global trainings, university events, Healthnetwork Foundation and MyEO Youth Exchange as well as receiving advantages from the partnerships on global and local level, with Sixt Rent a Car, Emirates, Fed Ex, Beymen, İnci, Yatsan, Rebul, Sarar, Damat Tween, E-lab, E-fit.


EO Turkey members and the board attended international events such as GLC Bangkok, Quantum Leap Europe, Lisbon Presidents’ Meeting and Moderator Summit and GLC Frankfurt. EO Turkey chapter administration was also working hard to offer a productive ground for the members. Season opening and closing parties, cultural tours in Istanbul, professional meetings like “Breakfast with Champions”, behavioral finance, regional analysis briefings, and personal development trainings such as storytelling, movie making, walking on glass were just some of them. These events created opportunity for members to grow stronger bonds with each other, and to improve themselves and their businesses.


Besides all these activities, EO Turkey reached another milestone this season. Young entrepreneur Hasan Zafer Elcik has been named ‘the best social entrepreneur of the year’ by winning the Social Impact Award with his project Otsimo at Global Student Entrepreneur Award (GSEA) Global Finals. This was the first global achievement of EO Turkey finalists in GSEA.
