ebbf - mindful people meaningful work
short news from ebbf members
Philippe Gerling featured an article in the January 2015 issue of the Nissan Motor Corporation in Guam focusing on the concept of the company as a “work community”. To better explain this idea he mentioned a TEDx Innsbruck talk by ebbf member, Oscar Mendez Rosa, titled “Transforming companies into communities“.
Jorg Wuttke will make a presentation on the 22 January 2015 to the INTA Members in his function of President of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China (EUCCC).
Alan Scheffer, founder of Management Associates, recently received a review from Kirkus on his book Hanging the Mirror: The Discipline of Reflective Leadership, almost 900 copies sold to individuals and organizations.

25th of January, don’t miss this one-day ebbf international event organised by ebbf geneva. A day-long opportunity of presentations, workshops and meaningful conversations on the topic of “Celebrating Gender Diversity”
Exploring different dimensions of diversity, moving away from the old concepts of opposing diverse elements of society and looking for ways to unify and celebrate our differences with equal rights.
We seek to understand what a society, a workplace and a company can look like, in which all members participate, contribute and benefit equitably, working together for a common goal: the realization of the incredible potential that each member has. Diversity is not solely about equality or gender issues, it is a way of conceiving our society and exploiting the incredible asset that its diversity represents.
Join us in our meaningful conversation and enjoy mutual respect, learning, and diversity of opinion and commonality of goal in contributing to a prosperous, just and sustainable civilization.
