    Facilitating a two-day organisational development retreat in Geneva

    Chris Grose and IMA consultant Silvia Capezzuoli are with the World Intellectual Property Organisation's (WIPO) facilitating their two-day ‘Work as One’ organisational development retreat.  It is especially designed for their Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific and ten other WIPO divisions at their Geneva HQ , to foster a collaboration strategy and increase teamwork.  So we are supporting them to foster a real team spirit and collaborate and cooperate (by doing) better. They also have an important new capacity building initiative to discuss, which will improve the intellectual property landscape in developing countries. This retreat follows the particpatory training we ran on results based monitoring (RBM) Silvia and I ran for WIPO South Korea in November with all their ASEAN country partners.
