February 13th, 2012 | A change in programme for the 38th Annual IAPCO Seminar in Wolfsberg proved extremely successful. More than half of the learning time was dedicated to shorter overviews followed by a choice of tutorials where smaller groups, and even one-to-ones, were accommodated.

Invited experts for the tutorials included Keith Spencer of IPCAA on Pharma Compliance, Pierce Riemer of The World Petroleum Council on Sustainability, Anne W. Rødven of VisitOSLO on Bidding, John Martinez of Shocklogic Global on Technology, and Philippe Mahuas of Marriott Moscow Grand Hotel on Client Management.

All invited speakers were supported by IAPCO faculty, creating a total ratio of 1 faculty member for every 5 participants …. “Worth every second!”, “IAPCO has met my high expectations”, “A great learning experience “…such was the praise and enthusiasm from the participants.

The 39th Annual Seminar will take place in Wolfsberg from 19-24 January 2013.
