#FacWeekChat

Please join us on Friday October 23, 10-11am & 4-5pm UK time – join either or both chat, according to which times suit you where you are.

The topic for the two chats this year will be change, and what can be done to help people to align together to make change happen. Each chat will include 6-8 questions for you to respond to, spaced out throughout the hour – and of course you can respond to others’ responses, and add questions of your own, as you might in any chat.

The many tweets of a twitter chat are followed by using a common hashtag, in this case #FacWeekChat as in previous years. We will document the chats onStorify, as we have in previous years.

Practical Steps to Re:ignite Your Communication Career
Michael Ambjorn, Founder, Align Your Org

Cross cultural collaboration and business

Ever been in a situation where people throw ideas at you? Exciting right? Whether they impact stakeholders, society or planet - you need a way to grapple with them: decide which to take on and turn into action, which to let gently go.

Now throw in a couple of cultural differences and behold the complexity... This is a fast-paced practical session from the trenches of cross-cultural collaboration across three continents. 

Speaker at 2011 IABC World Conference in California - track sponsored by CISCO and incidentally, this Economist/Cisco PDF is still useful: The Role of Trust in Business Collaboration.
