Spotlight seminar: Fear or excitement? The consequences of emerging technologies, October 4th, 2018

Webster University, Geneva
followed by an informal networking apéro

Nicoletta Iacobacci, PhD
Adjunct Professor, Media Communications Department, Webster University Geneva & Jinan University, China

This event will be moderated by Sarah Grosso, Media Communications Department, Webster University Geneva.

This is a free event.

Advance registration is requested here>>

This presentation aims to create awareness about the positive and not-so-positive consequences of the new technologies that are increasingly influencing our lives.

Technology is progressing like never before; our civilisation will change so much that its rules and technologies will be incomprehensible to the previous generation. As science-fiction becomes science fact, this lecture looks at how these emerging technologies are impacting our lives. How can we befriend these new technologies, rather than running scared from their developments? How can we ensure a bright future in which our children will coexist peacefully and collaboratively with thinking machines?

The event will be followed by a question and answer session and a free networking cocktail.

Visual language and graphic facilitation: One-day workshop – 22 November 2018 – Geneva


Of interest to communicators:

A one-day introduction to the techniques of using hand-drawn visuals in a range of professional contexts, including group facilitation, coaching and training.

You will learn the basics of visual language and how to use a mix of simple drawings, colour, words and metaphors to develop and share ideas, record presentations and meetings, and engage and energize groups.

Thinking that you can draw is absolutely not a prerequisite— if the techniques interest you and you’re prepared to experiment, please join us. We will spend a large proportion of the time each day practising and sharing within the group.

Engage both your right and your left brain and have fun!

Host and facilitator: Sarah Clark,
