IABC Cleveland

A Group for Professional Business Communicators


Invitation to IABC Columbus Fourth Annual Professional Development Conference

Members of IABC Cleveland and area communicators have been invited to attend the IABC Columbus Fourth Annual Professional Development Conference, entitled, "Build Influence & Drive Results for Yourself & Your Company," on Friday, December 12 from 8:30-3 pm. The topic of influence is a hot one today. LinkedIn even has a special designation for “Influencers” who are leaders to watch for the latest trends in business, politics and pop culture. They give coveted advice to hundreds of followers. And they are the prescribed models for a successful life. We all use influence in some form or fashion both personally and professionally. Would you like to learn how to be even better at creating and maintaining positive change?

Keynote speaker, Swiss-based corporate executive coach Amy Carroll has worked with clients like Microsoft, Dow, Cisco Systems, Nestlé, Procter & Gamble, HP and Nokia. This is a fully interactive, two-hour workshop with Amy!

Sneak Peek: Exciting Program Lineup for 2015

Get ready for an exciting lineup of programming for 2015. We've captured the continual use of "buzz words" facing our communications industry: mobile technology, intranets, data analysis, event marketing, and we've focused next year's programming to directly share insights and understanding behind each of these terms. The IABC Cleveland-Akron team are here to help you navigate this ever-changing business landscape we face together every day. And here's a sneak peek at what's to come...
