Lecture led by Professor Lee SCHLENKER, author and Chair of Emerging Economies and Technologies at the EMLYON Business School in Lyons, France At this event you will be joined by other senior executives with similar challenges and pressures to those that you face. Together we will explore how your role as a leader can shape the future of your business and how, by using emerging technologies effectively, you can move ahead and achieve lasting success. As you continue to cope with tough trading conditions, are you hanging on to “time proven” technologies and business practices long past their prime? When budgets are tight it’s all too easy to defer moving forward, preferring simply to downsize, outsource and put off investments until the storm blows over. The danger is you will be left behind - your past investments may actually hold you back instead of propelling you towards business success. Take some time to find out how emerging technologies can put you back in the race with solutions that deliver business results fast. This Workshop is a perfect springboard to put you ahead of the rest and will give you the tools you need to leverage the power of technology for your business. Main Speakers of this Workshop: Karel Soukenik, CFO, Raiffeisenbank Filip Linhart, Business Development Manager, Telefónica Czech Republic Zdenek Pilz, Managing Director, Oracle Czech What will you take away? A toolbox of resources has been developed to provide you with a measurable return on your investment, including: 1. A new White Paper, sponsored by Oracle, that explores how to change your managerial perspective on the use of information in order to transform your organizational performance 2. Expert research material and technology surveys of current trends in information technology: augmented reality, big data, behavioral sciences, and social network analysis. 3. Case studies demonstrating the impact of these new technologies on business performance This workshop isn’t just about technology; it’s about broadening and deepening your perspectives in getting work done. In open discussion with other professionals facing similar challenges, you can explore the business value of new customer-focused applications that will transform your management practices and steer your organization towards the horizon of what’s possible today and beyond. Registration: email@example.com or online at www.amcham.cz before June 17.

Following the more personal view of how we face conflict in the first seminar, what options in our organisations do we have for dispute resolution? Leaving aside warfare and violence..., what other avenues are open to us? Can an ombudsman help? Court proceedings are expensive, uncertain and often slow? They usually end up with a win:lose result, with bitterness on one side if not both. Come to the second Amcham HR seminar and hear panellists whose role is to find alternative ways to dispute resolution. Understand conflict management as a process. Speakers: Ivana Watson, Mediator - Mediation is more effective and more creative than other approaches to conflict resolution. 80% of mediation cases result in an agreement which is acceptable for both parties. Darcie Murray, Pedersen & Partners - It is important to remember that no matter the structured guidelines a company adopts on conflict resolution, no matter how diplomatic the mediator, there is always a human factor to every conflict. In that, a fine balance subsists between the subjective and objective, and the mediating party must learn to navigate this line like a consummate tight rope walker. Ladislav Smejkal, White & Case - I want to concentrate on alternative ways of dispute resolution at work place in accordance with the applicable laws. I want to give practical examples from my legal experience as both an advisor on HR legal issues and counsel in court. I can also share with you my experience as ombudsman for some of our clients. Further I can discuss conflict management as I'm very much involved in "departure meetings" with employees and top managers espcially in global companies.
