A partnership between the Associations & Conference Forum (AC Forum) and the Leading Centres of Europe (LCE) delivered its inaugural Collaborative Learning Experience at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) in Glasgow earlier this month. Under the theme “The Language of Leadership”, the event was attended by 20 delegates from both organisations.
Glasgow-based communications consultancy, Pink Elephant, took the participants through a journey which tackled the golden rules of communication and interviewing skills. Attendees were challenged to communicate in the most effective way possible during filmed interviews which were then played back for analysis. Collaboration between groups and individuals was key throughout the event, helping to grow strong working relationships. The SEC’s Chairman, who is the former president of Virgin Galactic and special advisor to Sir Richard Branson, delivered a session on the value and importance of brand and innovation.
Adrian Ott, President of the AC Forum, said: “Through this new partnership, the LCE and the SEC, supported by the Glasgow Convention Bureau enabled AC Forum’s educational ambitions to come a big step closer towards a natural synergy which fosters peer-to-peer education, innovation by sharing good practice, expanding thinking, and finally, neutrality by providing a forum free from commercial influence.”
More on this soon, in the September issue of Boardroom.
