Hello Montréal! We are delighted to be back at an IABC World conference after launching Corporate Snakes and Career Ladders in New Orleans two years ago. Yesterday, we had a chance to play with over 50 senior communicators looking to have fun, change their perspective and improve their advising and consulting skills.

Thank you to all who attended and gave us some nice feedback.

The game has evolved quite a lot in the last two years thanks to feedback from our amazing clients – the UK government, a few multinationals and UK universities. The dilemmas Carmen faces keep getting tougher and more real, we’ve added some practical tools like an influencing style self-diagnostic and an analysis of the different styles of strategic adviser. What has not changed is our passion for making learning something enjoyable and innovative. Yesterday we tried something new and launched an interactive voting system. And now we also have a brand new website blog for players to continue following us.

IABC is about making connections and #IABC18 is focusing on the communication crossroads. This outlook could not be a better fit with our philosophy and we have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Yesterday we connected Melbourne to Johannesburg, Ottawa with Dakar, and London to Regina. We realised that all over the world communicators make a difference, and will continue to do so. We are committed to helping them along the way.

Where will Carmen go next? We are very excited about branching out into the worlds of HR, diversity and inclusion and global business. And if you would like her to come and visit you, get in touch!
