IABC Conference a “steal” for Barbadians this 27th September at Hilton Barbados!

IABC Barbados is hosting what its president describes as the “professional development conference of the year” for corporate communicators and human resources practitioners, and they’re urging you not to miss the one-day event being held at the Hilton on September 27.

At this time in our Region, every stakeholder agrees that to boost productivity through greater employee engagement is one of the pressing issues facing companies in the Caribbean and elsewhere.

“Local opportunities to learn from top thinkers in this field do not present themselves often to members of our profession,says Lynda Holder, president of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Barbados Chapter. “So when something like this comes along, communicators and HR professionals in Barbados need to make the most of it.”

Holder says the conference has been priced “ridiculously low” because of the generosity of presenters who have waived their fees, and because of support from sponsors such as Roberts Manufacturing Co. Ltd.

"They appreciate how expensive it is for us to be always travelling to big cities for this type of event."

Admission is $300 for IABC members and $450 for non-members inclusive of conference materials. The price also includes a cocktail reception on the evening before, and full buffet lunch and coffee breaks on the day of the conference.

“Honestly, this conference is not just a deal – it’s a steal,” says Holder. “To attend a conference of this calibre in the US would cost you five times as much by the time you factor in air fare and accommodation.”

The IABC Barbados chapter president says the event is only a few days away and is urging those who haven’t signed up to do so now. “All you have to do is go to our website at www.iabcbarbados.com. It’s that simple.”
