+1 IBCS® ANNUAL CONFERENCE: PROFESSIONALS DISCUSS FUTURE OF IBCS®
More than 90 IBCS® professionals met on June 8 at the traditional Livery Hall of the Chartered Accountants in London for the IBCS® Annual Conference. In his key note, Prof. Klaus Kornwachs reminded the attendees not to forget the ultimate goal of report design: triggering actions. Exciting workshops on design aspects, on analytic software on its way to become an editorial and communication system, and on how to talk about IBCS® to different stakeholders made the conference a success. Many presentations are available for download from the conference site.
+2 WEB DOMAIN: HICHERT.COM BECOMES IBCS.COM
After more than 2 years of research and negotiations, we finally succeeded in getting the domain www.ibcs.com – just in time for the Annual Conference. Moving to ibcs.com is the logical next step on our way of making IBCS® a well-known international standard.
+3 SECOND MEETING: INTERNATIONAL IBCS® TRAINERS EXCHANGE VIEWS
The standardization of the IBCS® training program and the qualification activities for trainers make progress: 10 IBCS® Trainers met right after the Annual Conference to exchange experience on IBCS® training courses in Australia, Austria, Croatia, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, and UK. We can state that as of today we are able to deliver IBCS® training courses of the same high quality in several languages all over the world.
