Congress of European Managers, 7th and 6th June in Montenegro

More than 200 participants will gather to discuss about “Leadership in challenging times”

CEC European Managers is one of the partners contributing to the organization of the “Congress of European Managers”, which will take place next 6 and 7 June in Montenegro. This event, which will gather more than 200 participants (managers, political leaders, academics, experts of management issues, journalists) from all over Europe, the US and India, is meant to be the first large-scale gathering of managers in the Balkan area.

Besides AMM, the main organizer of the event, CEC European Managers is sided by other regional associations of managers: HMA, the Hellenic Management Association (member of CEC European Managers); CROMA, the Croatian association of managers; SAM, the Serbian association of Managers and EMA, the European Management Association. With the latter CEC European Managers signed last December a cooperation agreement to develop common initiatives and events focusing on leadership and management issues, thus strengthening the “second” pillar of CEC European Managers; the Congress is the first outcome of this agreement. The Congress will also offer a major opportunity for networking at regional level, and will hopefully represent the first step of a process of institutional building for managerial associations in an area of our continent that looks at the European Union as a social model.

Participants to the Congress will assist to an international conference dedicated to discussing what different approaches to leadership can be effective to facing the many challenges of our present, difficult times. “Leadership in challenging times” is the title of the conference, with 23 confirmed speakers giving lectures and animating debates over two days on issues like creativity, women in leadership positions, socially responsible leadership and business models transfer. Speakers on behalf of CEC European Managers will be Honor Cooper-Kovacs, international expert and consultant in communication and business issues; Cecilia Akerblom, PhD, leadership expert at Ledarna and Rolf-Jurgen Seyerle, CEO of Star Import (the official importer of Mercedes in the Balkan area). Next to the conference, CEC European Managers, EMA and the Association of managers of south-eastern Europe will hold their internal statutory meetings.

The Congress is also present on social media: profiles on Facebook, Linkedin and Youtube have been activated, providing regular updates on the preparation of the Congress.
