Milan, 4 May - Hotel de la Ville - 12:00 pm

ICFAS is pleased to welcome Kevin Corrigan, Fixed Income – Head of Credit Management at Lombard Odier.
Credit investors have been ill-served by traditional conventions. Market-cap weighted benchmarks in credit force investors to invest in the most indebted and leveraged borrowers. A better alternative does exist. By investing in the industries that matter most to European growth, we can provide a better investment opportunity more focused on virtuous companies.

In collaboration with
  Effective Presentations
How to Reach Your Client's Attention/Your Goals
Milan, 8 June - Hotel de la Ville - 6:15 pm

A presentation is effective when it reaches the settled objective.
Communication consists of two levels: content and relationship. Professionals often think that the content level is prevailing, and tend to underestimate the influence of the relationship. The relationship level, instead, is so crucial that it shapes the content itself and turns objectives into results.
In this workshop Roberta Prato Previde, management consultant, trainer and coach, will offer practical principles and techniques to devise and realize effective presentations.
