A few weeks ago we launched the conference ‘Be the change’ for the executive Master of Management Development program from Copenhagen Business School. The conference was designed to create attention and be a platform for interaction between the executive program and potential participants.
The financial crisis has been tough on most executive education and training programs as the management training costs have been cut to a minimum across companies and sectors. Our job was to help the recruitment of participants for the program and the primary objective was to establish opportunities to discuss management education with potential participants as well as senior HR and education executives. We’ve been working with the press to get more attention in the business press, we’ve produced a range of video podcasts with some of the top-professors from CBS and finally we created the conference ‘Be the change’ at the Danish National Museum. Some 140 executives joined the event to meet John Christiansen, Jens Moberg, Patricia Shaw, Jan Molin and Michael Christiansen.
During the past four months MMD has received applications from more than 20 participants, reaching a full class of nearly 30 participants which is the goal for every new class. The interaction before and during the ‘Be the change’ conference has been the catalyst for new relations and bringing old ones up-to-date. In january MMD will start publishing four video-podcasts with the talks from the conference, hence giving a new opportunity to experience and share the ideas behind the program. And we will share the case with you on our website – more about that in the next edition of Stagis Highlights (push ‘Newsletter’ on top of this page to sign up) and here on the blog.
