BOYCOTTS: dealing with them … and avoiding them

Posted by iabcadmin on September 16, 2007

Nearly 100 communcations professionals gathered in Geneva for a forum on the impact of consumer boycotts, how to communicate during a boycott, and how to prevent one. The forum, organized by the MScom Executive Master of Science in Communications Management at the University of Lugano and a number of partners, provided a lively and informative evening. Read the event report, view the video and see the photos https://iabcswitzerland.wordpress.com/features/

Thanks to Nina Volles for the report.

Join the IABC (International Association of Business Communicators) in Geneva at 18.30 on 24 September 2007 for a speednetworking evening. Members and non-members are welcome.

Speednetworking is THE way to get to know people with similar interests to you. PLUS you get to discuss three subjects of professional interest. It’s fast and furious, and one of the most popular types of event within the IABC.

How does it work? First, you exchange business cards with everybody else attending. Each couple has two minutes to introduce themselves to each other. A bell rings, and you move on to the next person for another two minutes, and so on. Then you choose one of three round tables where different subjects are discussed. After 15 minutes, the bell rings, the conversation stops and you move on to the next table. It’s a great way of advancing your knowledge and exchanging views in a very short time.


Monday 24 September, 18.30 to 21.00, Hotel Bristol, 10, rue du Mont-Blanc, 1201 Geneva

Speednetworking starts 18.45

Fee payable at door (cash only): CHF 25 for IABC members, CHF 35 for non-members
