Our Events

The Centre Heads Call is organised monthly for members to share learning on current challenges and opportunities.

Each session begins with a live poll to check what’s on people’s minds, a first look at the results of the ASPIRE Tracker, our monthly benchmarking survey of our members, and open discussion on one or more hot topics.

The call is hosted on Teams and free to all members to attend.

Thursday Lunch

Named after the famous ‘Thursday Lunches’ organised by Polish King, Stanisław August Poniatowski in the 18th century.

Thursday Lunch is our way of thanking all those who go the extra mile to help build our communities. Bringing together people from across the ASPIRE and wider Kraków community, the Thursday Lunch serves to promote the cross-fertilisation of ideas and strengthening of relationships across sectors in Kraków.

Thursday Lunch, hosted by our partner hotels and restaurants, uniquely includes the opportunity to participate in preparing the food we eat under the guidance of the chef.
