For most of us, summer is a distant memory. The days are short and the sun low but at least the cold weather provides plenty of excuses to indulge in the festive spirit. The Christmas period is a time for hanging out with family and unwinding – you’ll be forgiven for forgetting the turmoil of situations like Brexit for a few days. Speaking of family, it’s a theme that runs through this edition with several of our featured business leaders benefittin­g from the trust, commitment, and long-term planning that family-run organisati­ons pride themselves on. The likes of Alberto Zamperla (CEO of Zamperla SpA), Otmar Michaeler (CEO of Falkenstei­ner Hotels & Residences), and Ralph Lauren (no introducti­on needed) are all reaping the rewards of promoting strong blood ties.

As always, we have travelled the width and breadth of Europe and Asia to bring you insightful success stories, from German pharma giant Boehringer Ingelheim’s unselfish ambition to improve lives around the world, to the China Steel Chemical Corp’s push for cleaner energy with a move into lithium ion batteries for electric vehicles.

Inside there’s also an interview with the fearless Pelorus travel company guaranteed to get your adrenaline pumping, and a couple of new real estate developmen­ts that should pique your interest. Enjoy the holidays!
