The week kicked off with an open format Sales workshop: allowing our top account managers from around the world to step out of their day to day and take things to the next level:  exploring the exponential potential of key account business.

Our IPPAG managers then participated in a ‘Digitalisation and the Future of our Industry’ workshop hosted by Professor Tim Bruysten: who helped us draw a roadmap for ‘being a company owner / manager in the digital age’.  Another day filled with expertise and creativity, discoveries and shared learning. As part of IPPAGs focus on ‘IPPAG has Vision’, one of our 4 pillars: the workshop was exclusively opened to selected industry guests: key Partner Suppliers, press and industry colleagues, and dedicated specialists.

As the leading industry Think Tank: IPPAG aims to create synergies and unleash potential: starting by getting the best minds in the industry in the same room.

We then closed the week with an internal workshop on company purpose and sustainability: all linked to the 4 IPPAG pillars:

– IPPAG shares: Case stories, member highlights and best practices

– IPPAG exchanges: CoDev groups, resources and platforms

– IPPAG has vision: Digitalisation, Purpose, Future of the Industry

– IPPAG cares: CSR + Sustainability / IPPAG BSCI program + IPPAG Convergences Awards: WEEECAM

And as usual, our members presented the best of what they’ve been doing for the last few months: with CIPI (Italy) / mcs (Germany) / and Prominate (UK) winning the IPPAG awards for ‘Most original Product Idea’/  ‘Most Innovative Promotional Solution’ / and ‘Best marketing campaign’
