The summer marks the time for the TAYP family to connect and celebrate as many members head home to Tunisia to spend some vacation time that never seems long enough. As professionals, we are accustomed to using a plethora of virtual meeting tools and yet we all tend to look forward to being home as nothing replaces the face-to-face we spend meeting with local members, discussing existing projects, brainstorming new ideas, and setting the stage for new initiatives.
This past summer was no different as the TAYP extended family gathered for our annual reception at the amazing Villa Bleue in Sidi Bou Said where we took stock of our accomplishments this past year and gathered feedback on some strategic initiatives the executive team has been working on for some time.
When we consider new ideas, we tend to apply a simple litmus test that consists in answering 2 questions: does the idea further the mission of TAYP? and does the idea serve our members? Using this framework, we set out to define a number of key initiatives that include:
In addition to the two key initiatives above, we continue to work on supporting ideas such as a professional portal that can serve as a main destination for Tunisian entrepreneurs looking for mentors along with potential partnerships with American NGOs that specialize in activating diaspora communities.
The upcoming months promise to be highly productive for our growing association. Stay Tuned.
