The F Club‘s first lunch of the year took place at the prestigious Grande Real Villa Itália in Cascais, a renowned luxury hotel facing the Atlantic Ocean. The winter sun, on one of the first days of February, greeted all the guests, and the atmosphere was filled with the lively conversations typical of meetings and reunions, the greetings and friendliness of all those present. Fátima Magalhães, the founder of the F Club, did the honours, welcoming everyone with words of friendship. In the distance, the sound of violin music was the harbinger of yet another very exclusive and intimate event.
As the F Club is an epicenter dedicated to presenting exceptional brands and projects, Fátima Magalhães praised the presence of the event’s official sponsor, the Smeg brand. Its representatives took advantage of the moment and the invitation from the prestigious club to thank them for their presence and tell a little about the Italian brand’s success story, as well as mentioning the existence of the Smeg shop and showroom in Lisbon. In this presentation there was space to describe Smeg’s long and invaluable relationship with internationally renowned partners, including Dolce & Gabbana, who developed the pattern for the Blu Mediterraneo collection. With the aim of increasing the visibility of the companies involved for the F Club, some pieces from this line were on display for the guests to see.
In an optimistic atmosphere, where the chosen menu not only satisfied the palate but also provided moments of interaction, wines from Quinta dos Monteirinhos were served and, during the lunch, there was also the opportunity for the Shiseido beauty brand to present the products that were offered to all the guests.
During the lunch, we had a surprise inspirational businesswoman: France Balivet, a Frenchwoman living in Portugal, a lawyer by training and owner of one of the most exclusive shops on the Estoril line, inspired all those present with her story of entrepreneurship. She is a successful businesswoman who we never tire of having with us.
Promoting direct relationships between companies that share the desire to succeed in all dimensions is the mission of the F Club, which once again brought together women from different areas and sectors in an event that was, as usual, covered by F Luxury, the media outlet to which the F Club is always linked.
In the end, it was clear that this event was not just another business lunch, but an experience as enriching as it was fruitful. At the end of the afternoon, it was with the inspiration and motivation needed to face any challenges the future may bring that the guests left the hotel, certain that the next initiative is coming soon.
