KILLYLEAGH, CO DOWN, NORTHERN IRELAND – Today, PCMA opened its registration for Convening EMEA, which will take place in Barcelona, a city brimming with culture, heritage, and gastronomy, from 30 September to 02 October 2024. PCMA also confirmed its first keynote speaker is the author of The Coaching Habit, the best-selling coaching book of the century, Michael Bungay Stanier. 

Convening EMEA aims to bring over 600+ global industry leaders together at its flagship event this September to build a stronger future for the global business events community. With this mission at the heart of their programme strategy, PCMA has secured keynote Michael Bungay Stanier, who helps people be a force for change. As well as the best-selling ‘The Coaching Habit’ Michael has authored five other books which have sold more than a million copies, the latest being ‘How to work with almost anyone”. 

“I’m coming to Barcelona in September for Convening EMEA, and I hope you and your team are coming as well. I would love to see and work with you there. I’ll be delivering two different sessions, a keynote and a workshop, both of which will be engaging, practical, but, above all, useful. You will leave with insights about yourself, how you show up and how you work, as well as tools so you can start to shape the best possible relationships,” said Michael Bungay Stanier.
