In-person lunchtime seminar – Sustainability Storytelling – Thursday 1 December 2022

The Geneva Communicators Network is pleased to announce our first post-COVID-19 in-person lunchtime seminar!

Pressure is mounting on companies and organisations to prove that they’re taking concrete, meaningful steps to achieve sustainability and ESG. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, for example, is pushing for new rules to require greater transparency in a company’s environmental- and social-impact reports. NGOs and UN agencies are increasingly aiming to showcase how they are contributing to achieve the SDGs. For communicators, sustainability storytelling is a solution as our speaker, Michael Jordan, will explain in the seminar.

Date: Thursday 1 December 2022
Time: 12h30 to 14h00
*NEW location*: The Swiss Press Club, Domaine de Penthes, Chem. de l’Impératrice 18, 1292 Pregny-Chambésy, Geneva
Fee: CHF 30.- per person includes drinks and snacks
Please register online >>
