Poster Presentations

In the margins of many academic conferences poster presentations are well established means of communication. There are well established conventions, templates and guidelines. I am not aware, however, of poster presentations being used in leadership development programmes and I wonder if other AMED members have experience of this application of what can be, after all, a highly effective, completely original and very flexible form of communication.

More and more managers are today having to manage redundancy programmes. One of the most difficult communication challenges they face takes place on the very day employees leave. Perhaps this is because the formal announcements can be scripted and prepared for, perhaps it is because "leaving day" combines informality, challenge, emotion and real, physical change in a very poignant way. (It is difficult not to be impacted by the sight of valued colleagues literally "packing up their bags" and… Continue
