  • Effective board meetings in a cross-cultural environment (POSTPONED)

    May 30 2012, 01:00 - 01:00
    Location: AmCham – 77 rue de Miromesnil 75008 Paris

    Board meetings and presentations must be powerful, short and memorable in order to achieve the required result; we are here to help. Hidden agendas, cultural differences and a more general lack of communication can often mean failure for international organizations with several branches and a broad clientèle.

    Dr George Nurdin will share the key notions underlying the success of board meetings, with a special focus on the international and intercultural dimensions.

    Desmond McGetrick will focus upon the application of professional presentation skills in the high-stakes environment of the board room.

    Together, they’ll bring the challenges to life with an example of a real potentially explosive intercultural board meeting.

    Whether you already attend board meetings or aspire to do so, this workshop is for you.

    Take the strength, confidence and knowledge away with you to achieve your goals.
    Be sure not to miss out on this great learning opportunity and enjoyable coffee morning!
