Thank you to the members who attended our “welcome summer” networking apero last night at the Restaurant “La Vie des Champs”. It was a beautiful evening in the garden with great animation by the Improv group The Renegade Saints.
We are pleased to announce our “welcome summer” networking apero on 26 June 2018 at the Restaurant “La Vie des Champs”, a new lively and dynamic venue near the ICRC and ILO. Join us for some drinks and finger food to welcome the summer and network with fellow communicators.
The evening will also include an interactive improv workshop by the Geneva-based Renegade Saints. Improv is fast, fun and unpredictable. People end up exploring ideas they were not even thinking of just minutes earlier. The results are spontaneous and and often hilarious. But improv also teaches important skills such as quick thinking, cooperation, active listening, creativity and leadership. When these skills are applied at work and elsewhere, great things happen; it is no longer “business as usual.”
