Event Details

 

 
Dear all, 

Welcome to the 16th Edition  of the  Career Development Roundtable taking place in St. Gallen, Switzerland, on 9-10 December 2019 under the theme of “Challenging the Status Quo in International Organisations 

This year’s event is hosted by our generous friends of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs with support from the International Organization for Migration. We continue to have the support of TerraFirma Associates, Agenda Consulting and Devex for the event as well as for this year’s edition of the hotly anticipated Innovation Awards. 

 
We look forward to seeing you all again and hearing about what’s kept you busy this year. 

 

The plan.

The event will start with a welcome drink from our Swiss sponsors on the evening of the 8th of December. Monday morning, we meet bright and early for the start of two days of presentations and clinics to debate and explore this year’s theme. Thinking caps on please. 

We will wrap up Monday over dinner as we are all invited by our Swiss hosts. A great way to wrap up the first day and awards ceremony. 

 

On Wednesday, the career fair will open its doors, enabling those of you staying to meet a diverse Swiss-based audience of potential future candidates. Brushing up conversation skills is a must, as we are likely to be accosted by eager visitors. 

 

…registrations are now open! 

 

December is only a few months away and before you know it, you’ll be on your way to St. Gallen. We encourage you to complete your registration by the end of September, mid-October ideally. This will help the team’s planning.  

 

Social events must also be selected. In case of any issues or doubts, please write to us at contact@careerdevelopmentroundtable.org 

 

“What else do I need to consider?” 
 

Travel and accommodation? Clinics? Presentations? How can we help? Most relevant will be posted on our CDR site. We will also issue one or more emails for more consequent updates.   

 

We encourage you to check some of the other information sources we are maintaining like our CDR LinkedIn group (just refreshed) and since this year’s event is all about cultural change, we thought you might also enjoy sharing your CDR photos to our Instagram account. The WeAreCDR Instagram profile is set to private and the first step is to request access by selecting the ‘follow’ button. Be sure to use the hashtags #CDR2019 and #WeAreCDR so we can all enjoy your posts.

 

Finally, if you are planning on attending the Career Fair on the last day, we encourage you to follow the community’s Facebook Page, as well as our Swiss friends’ webpage - these resources, are focused on reaching out to the target audiences that will join the Career Day, so an ideal platform to get your message out there and to encourage attendants to visit you on the day. Exhibitors need to register here (Limited Space)

 

Anything else? 

We are always keen on bright ideas and look forward to YOUR contribution and ideas for presentations, workgroup/clinics in the subject areas of the event’s theme. The focus as always is on sharing learnings and linking it as much as possible to this year’s theme. Send us an eleventh pitch of your concept (5-10 lines max) to get the ball rolling to  contributions@careerdevelopmentroundtable.org at your earliest opportunity. We will get back to you as soon as we can with our comments.  

We welcome submissions from everyone and aim for balanced inputs from all of you so now is the time to dust up all those ideas you’ve been setting aside all year for this very purpose! 


Any other questions, please contact us

 

We look forward to seeing your registrations and reading about your ideas.
