Erin Meyer, INSEAD professor and HBR contributor, will discuss how different cultures influence the way to do business when working globally. Meyer provides vital insights for working effectively and sensitively with one's counterparts in the new global marketplace. This talk will help you build a more cohesive and successful team: one that will work together to bridge gaps, transform differences into assets, and ultimately grow your business.

In this session, we’ll work environment to explore strategies and success examples from some of today’s top event marketing practitioners and help you apply them to your own event and grow attendance/loyalty.

Learner Outcomes:

  • Identify steps for encouraging more cross-functional collaboration between meetings and marketing teams in order to protect and grow key attendee segments
  • Differentiate your conference by making smarter choices in the targets you pursue and connect your conference benefits with critical problems attendees need to solve
