      Hello, Paul. You can probably get some help here, but I would say you should try to get the information from an official Switzerland website, so you get all the details correctly. Join the next event of our group (it will be soon) and you can talk to a few people about your concerns.

    Thanks for organizing the event, however, I thought there would be a different organization of the meet up, with tips and discussions.

    Dear Alex,

    I am very interested in going through in our discussion of Wednesday about young professional industry transition, in particular from business to international affairs related to trade and business policy activities..I think this could be useful to career transitions related to other industries as well.

    I am glad to share with you and the other participants what I learned so far from my experience..

    Talk to you soon!

      Please click on the name of the place on this page. It will open Google Maps and you can search your desired connection. But I can tell you it is a few minutes walk from Zurich HB.

    It is amazing! We already filled-in all the spots available and have people on the waiting list in less than 24 hours (just overnight).

    We will for sure host a second event, so all the interested ones have the opportunity to attend.

    We'll try to schedule the second one still today. If you are interested, please RSVP to this one and get your name on the waiting list to have priority on the second one.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
