GGI experts gather in Zurich

Global Chairpersons of GGI Practice Groups meet in Zurich from 31 January until 02 February 2014 to exchange Best Practices information, experiences and discuss how to best use synergies.
GGI Practice Groups are expert groups within GGI, established by active GGI members. All over the world GGI members actively participate in the various GGI Practice Groups. Each group is lead by one global chairperson who creates the business plan, coordinates all projects and activities, monitors the group development and ensures smooth and comprehensive communication within the group.

The chairpersons meeting in Zurich kicks off with a dinner on Friday evening. On Saturday they start the meeting with a review of each Practice Group’s current state. During the meeting those issues, which relate to all Practice Groups will be analysed. Practice Group products will be presented and different methods, tools and best practices will be discussed. Further marketing and communication tools will be presented. All Practice Groups meet regularly during the main GGI conferences. But how can they effectively stay in contact in between the events? Which tools and presentation techniques are available to support Practice Groups?

Virtual reality will enliven meetings by enabling speakers at distant locations to participate in virtual mode. Augmented reality will also allow real and virtual worlds to blend and interact with each other, thus making additional information available. Telepresence, haptic technology, mobile tools, artificial intelligence, voice recognition programs, etc. there’s almost no end to the list of future options and potentials. And as we all know from our own observations: what sounds like science fiction today might be standard usage tomorrow.

In the afternoon Group Chairs will look at Innovative ways to get more out of their Practice Groups. The meeting will be concluded with a dinner in the traditional “Zunfthaus zur Waag”.
