EMENA Region Leadership Institute 2017

We are gearing up for the annual IABC EMENA Region Leadership Institute, which will be taking place on the 5th and 6th of October, in Delft, one of the most attractive and historic communities in the Netherlands.

There’s been a lot of change recently: in IABC, and in the communications profession. In October, IABC chapter leaders from across the EMENA Region are invited to join us in Delft, one of the most attractive and historic communities in the Netherlands, as we look at these changes.

Together, we will build a strategy and plan for making the most substantial changes to grow our impact, locally and regionally.

The more voices we have representing the diversity of EMENA, the more that we can develop plans which are inclusive of all members and potential members. Therefore, please join us and spread the event with whoever may be interested in joining IABC.

Event logisitics

Day 1, which will involve our Regional Board, chapter leaders, interested members and select guests, will start with the big picture, from three different perspectives: personal leadership and effectiveness, chapter growth and regional impact.

In the second part of Day 1, these three perspectives will be brought together into a regional strategy, and then focused on three new areas: partnerships, regional gatherings (such as EuroComm), and training/certification.

After the workshop, you may join me at my home near Delft’s historic centre to continue the conversation over snacks and regional beverages.

Day 2 will be a Board Meeting, which will take the outputs of the workshop and turn them into a plan of action. Chapter leaders and IABC member guests are welcome to attend.


The venue will be Buccaneer Delft, an accelerator for energy firms hosted in a complex of historic buildings near the walkable city centre. A range of available hotels in the area can be found here. Delft station is 40 minutes or less from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport by train, and the station is about 20 minutes from Buccaneer Delft. The evening event venue, my home, is a five-minute walk from Buccaneer Delft.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
