No matter how big or broad, individual efforts undertaken to alleviate poverty or reduce conflict will only be effective and sustainable if appropriate policies and efficient delivery systems are in place.

The Club de Madrid aims to work with current leaders to help improve decision making processes and establish suitable policy frameworks, respectful of human rights, the rule of law and democratic values, creating the most suitable environment possible for the pursuit of sustainable development actions.

To better achieve our objectives, we seek to identify and work with individuals and corporations who, like the Members of the Club, are committed to our mission and would like to make a difference in advancing development and leadership where it is most needed.

The President’s Circle 

The ‘President’s Circle’ is composed of a select group of business representatives, policymakers and philanthropists who share our values and are key in helping us support and promote democratic governance and leadership, thus forging local and global progress for the well-being on human kind.

We value greatly the qualified advice from the private and public sector on key issues to help us improve our activities and above all guide us to make them sustainable. The President’s Circle will meet at least once a year preferably on the sides of our General Assembly and Annual Conference. The President’s Circle may present recommendations at any time to the Club de Madrid leaders on existing or future projects/initiatives. This provides a unique opportunity to share their views among peers, offer advice to the Club’s leadership from their perspective and engage with our Members and other relevant personalities who attend our Annual conferences each year.
