To kick-off 2019, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is hosting its Rápido event on 30 January.
At a Rápido event, IABC arranges a line-up of fantastic speakers and, to keep it lively, they are only allowed to speak for five minutes each on a communications-related topic. Keeping the speakers in line and to time will be the compere for the evening, former President of IABC UK, Stephen Welch.
The future is dead, long live the future! – Ezri Carlebach
People don’t care. And it’s up to us to fix it – Matt Frost
This Rápido is being held at Truckles Wine Bar in London. Tickets are free for IABC members and £10 for non-members which includes a drink and nibbles. Doors open at 6pm and the event will start at 6.30pm.
