On Thursday December 3rd we will return to the lovely restaurant I Latini (St-Katelijneplein 2 Place Ste Catherine - 1000 Brussels) for a fine Italian meal and a pleasant network evening.
The total price of the dinner (including wine and drinks) is 50 euro for non-IEBA members and 20 euro for IEBA members.
You can register through a new feature with online payment on the IEBA website: http://www.ieba.org.uk/Events.asp. To be registered for the annual dinner both IEBA members and non-members will be asked to pay 20 euros. Non-members will be asked to pay an additional 30 euros at the dinner or can decide to become an IEBA member in the meantime.
We have noticed an increasing amount of people registering but not showing up at our events. This has lead to ordering and paying for too much catering food. We hope you can understand that we will invoice the full amount to people that have not been showing up.
Our annual London Wine Tasting will take place on Monday 7 December. Once again (and for the 19th time), Hugh Gallagher will be in the Wine Chair.
Hugh will be giving us an insight into the story of Cabernet Sauvignon. Once grown only in Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon has spread internationally to become the world's most important red wine cépage. How does the Bordeaux blend of Cabernet with their permitted partners (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot) compare with wines from elsewhere made exclusively from Cabernet ? What is the true character of Cabernet Sauvignon ? This tasting will juxtapose Bordeaux with wines from California, South Africa, Australia and elsewhere
This year's Wine Tasting will be held in the Hall at Blackfriars Settlement, 1 Rushworth Street, London SE1 0RB.
(For those familiar with London, this is not particularly close to Blackfriars railway station. It is south of the river, 7 minutes' walk from Waterloo and 12 minutes' walk from London Bridge stations. The nearest tube stations are Southwark on the Jubilee line and Borough on the Northern line.)
The cost is £32 per person. Click on "Pay Now" below to register (if you have received this by email and cannot see a Pay Now button, click here http://www.ieba.org.uk/Events-byDate.asp?date=07/12/2015&view=yes&size=small&ItemID=0 ). As usual, spouses and/or friends are most welcome.
We hope to see as many as possible of you in December!
As the economy in China slows down from double digit growth figures, companies need to adapt their HR policies to respect cost constraints. However, there still is a talent shortage. What can employers do to continue to attract talent? Current trends as well as an insight on how Novartis addressed the paradox will be provided during this 1 hour webinar, with time for questions from the audience.
Webex login and dial-in details will be provided closer to the date.
The 16th Annual Conference will be held on 9 and 10 March 2016 in Brussels. Save the date!
We will be returning to Brussels in order to easily replicate the previous highly successful Conferences where we have enjoyed record levels of attendance from a wide variety of countries, and have also received very positive feedback ('A very worthwhile conference' - 'A good balance of subjects' - 'Great and smooth overall organisation' - 'Great opportunity for networking' - 'Fantastic dinner' - etc.).
The price includes all meals, including the Gala Dinner on 9 March. In addition, for delegates new to IEBA and attending the Annual Conference for the first time, the fee will include a year's free membership for the 2016/17 membership year.
The Annual General Meeting of the Association will be held on the afternoon of 9 March (members only).
