Vigor Events launches Knowledge Club™ 2017 with a one-day seminar focused on Cultural diversity at the workplace
After a very successful year in 2016, the country’s leading knowledge transfer platform – The Knowledge Club™ launched its 5th edition in April 2017 with a one day seminar – Leading across Cultures – with Erin Meyer, who is a professor at INSEAD Business School and one of the world’s top HR influencers in 2016.
The highly practical seminar shed light on one of today’s most pressing business issues: how do different cultures influence the way to do business when working globally. Drawing examples from her book – “The Culture Map – breaking through the Invisible Boundaries of Global Business” Erin will provided attendees with vital insights for working effectively with one’s counterparts in the new global marketplace, building a more cohesive and successful team: one that will work together to bridge gaps, transform differences into assets, and ultimately grow your business.
The seminar was designed for global leaders who manage the collaboration of their team members across the world, sales and marketing experts who negotiate and make deals with clients in other countries, senior managers currently (about to be) posted abroad and anyone whose business success relies on their ability to work with internationally based clients, colleagues or employees.
Erin has worked in Africa, Europe, and the United States to study the communication patterns and business systems of different parts of the world. She has also won the 2015 Thinkers50 “On the Radar” award as an up-and-coming thinker most likely to shape the future of business and business thinking and publishes in Harvard business review, New York Times and forbes.com. She has also been interviewed on CNN, Bloomberg TV, the BBC and NPR.
Based on thorough market research of the region’s business world and feedback received from last year’s attendees, this year’s Knowledge Club will focus on the top needed business competencies of leadership, communication, teamwork, HR management, strategy & planning and public speaking.
The Leading across cultures seminar was held on the 18th of April 2017 at Hilton Resort, Mangafand was organized by Vigor Events & Co-Organized by ALGAS Events Company.
