General Manager, C Club & ARGAN Albida’a Club, Kuwait
Pedro Ferreira is General Manager of the health clubs of the ARGAN Group in Kuwait. He is a board member of the Portuguese Business Council of Kuwait and has been a university professor since 2019. He is working on his PhD in corporate governance at University Institute of Lisbon and holds a master’s degree in business management with a published thesis on negotiation and cultural frameworks.
C Club lives up to its creation by Engineer Khalid Al Mashaan, CEO of ALARGAN International Real Estate Company, as a premium lifestyle club that yields a quiet, secluded family retreat, away from the city and yet, in the heart of Kuwait. We introduce a holistic approach to wellbeing with a luxurious state-of-the-art facility and equipment designed to integrate any type of training. In parallel, our members can relax by our infinity pool facing the beautiful Gulf Sea or rejuvenate at our spa amenities that all result in the perfect hideaway that protects the privacy of our dignitaries, celebrities, and C-suite members. Our core values are Vitality | Energy | Serenity, and they reflect the fundamental beliefs that guide our team and our members daily.
Nowadays, with the increasing access to information through technology, anybody can replicate exercises, download programs and workout recipes, or invest in large amounts in machines and infrastructure; however, at C Club, our main competitive edge stands on the value of our team’s human capital that displays a tremendous amount of talent and leads daily by example with authenticity. It is the inimitable value of each one of our team members that has enabled us to build not just trust but also a high level of commitment with our members that see C Club as their second home. At C Club, we offer an uncontested space in Kuwait’s market. To develop the quality of our success, we need to constantly reflect and learn from what we did that generated a positive difference so that we can then repeat those actions with a systematic approach and define our own benchmarks without losing track of what happens locally and internationally in the industry.
With the launch of ARGAN Albida’a Club we enlarged our Club’s portfolio to cater to families in Kuwait. Until the end of 2022, we will launch C Studio as a part of our exciting boutique concept with four different workout matrixes including an amazing cycling studio. We are currently developing a member’s app that we will launch until the end of the year with CRM tools to be able to take informed decisions and focus on what we believe in: providing the best service to our members. For that, we need to follow the old saying “You need to measure what you manage” and be able to gather qualitative and quantitative data. We are in the final stage of closing our partnership with Nike, and we just launched an amazing new F&B concept at C Club called Backyard. We are also enhancing the group exercise portfolio of our clubs, and we will continue to work with official entities on sports and cultural events that can be supported by our clubs’ strengths.
By sponsoring our events you are able to best participate in the discussions that matter to you, as well as gain unique networking opportunities.
