Download and Share the EMELI 2012 Program!

It’s great to see some familiar faces have already registered for this year’s Europe & Middle East Leadership Institute (EMELI) at Alcatel Lucent, Paris, on Monday 22nd October.

If you’ve not registered, you can do it right here. There’s some nice hotels nearby and the program is looking great too. We mentioned earlier that Minter Dial is our keynote speaker and Suzanne Salvo will offering us some great advice on visual communications.

Right now, we’re very happy to show you almost the full program – with only one last speaker to be confirmed!

We promise to do our best to keep things as they are, but we also reserve the right to change things a little. Just in case.

Note that you can download the program by clicking on one of the buttons at the bottom of this post (‘download as PDF’ or ‘Print article).

Be sure to pass it on!
