JCI London is planning to launch a new chamber in Canary Wharf. For all members, partners and guests who work and live around the area this will be a perfect opportunity to be part of this movement in a thriving centre of Business and Commerce.
Why Canary Wharf?
Canary Wharf has 90,000 employees and is home to the world and European HQs of numerous major corporate organisations: Barclays, HSBC, JP Morgan, Citigroup, Cliiford Chance and many more. The local and international links are very strong, and this new chamber is an opportunity to bring various individuals together from various companies and countries providing a platform to network, learn and inspire each other.
Canary Wharf has excellent transport links, with close proximity to London City Airport, as well as over 100 hundred prestige bars and restaurants; it is an ideal location to establish a presence and build a Jaycee community.
Canary Wharf is also located in the London borough of Tower Hamlets. This borough is one of the most deprived in the UK, with high unemployment and child poverty. A chamber in Canary Wharf will also enable Jaycees to branch into the neighbouring community to undertake sustainable projects and create positive change.
A JCI chamber in Canary Wharf will provide a platform for promoting active citizenship by establishing a bridge between corporate, governmental, local businesses and the local community.
As one of London’s two main financial centres alongside the City, we look forward to a strong brother-and-sister alliance between JCI London and JCI Canary Wharf in the future.
Be Part of the Movement
JCI Canary Wharf is hosting its first ‘Meet the Members’ event in Canary Wharf. Featuring Questions and Answers with JCI London members, it will be a chance to gather and brainstorm ideas on projects/events to host in and around the area with the intention of hopefully building a team to officially launch this chamber.
