Game of politics


October 24 OF 2017 from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

The ESADE Alumni Poland Chapter is pleased to invite you the first event of the year in Warsaw: a talk on Tuesday, October 24th by Olgierd Swida (EP 85), executive coach and leadership trainer at Tools2Lead.

Olgierd Swida will give a talk entitled ''Game of Politics''. Internal politics in a company are a fact of life. We usually don’t like them. We usually complain about them. They can be counterproductive. At the same time one needs to know how to play this game to get things done. Olgierd will be sharing some of his insights into internal politics, based on two decades of corporate experience in different countries and different continents.

This is a great opportunity to attend a conference about a really interesting topic that can be really useful for all your future career. Don’t miss it!

Please be sure to forward this message to your classmates and other ESADE contacts as we might not have their latest e-mail addresses.
