Last month Gail Hamilton joined Louise Holloway at the Ecole de Communication Visuelle in Paris (http://www.ecv.fr) as a jury member for a Masters-level project with a new organization, Energy Endeavour Europe, as a client. They were joined by a third jury member, Professor Peter Russell, Dean of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Delft University of Technology (http://www.bk.tudelft.nl/en).
Fifty Masters students in the Visual Communications program researched, designed and presented a brand identity system for the proposed Energy Endeavour Europe, an umbrella organization for university research competitions and awareness activities in the fields of social, economic and environmental sustainability. The organization will house European-level projects such as the Solar Decathlon Europe (http://www.solardecathlon2014.fr).
The jury used rigorous criteria to select the top student proposal which will be used by the Energy Endeavour’s directors Holloway and Russell to move forward on branding and communication of the organization and its events.
Be Kind. Rewind: Masterful use of film language can deliver a punch in varied professional contexts and often trumps the flatness of management “speak”. Taught by a film professional, this course offers participants innovative ways to use film language and gestures to manage large, often contentious group meetings. The course shows how film and TV series (which have captivated global audiences) have equally inundated international professional environments. More and more, these media have defined what constitutes leadership in corporate culture. Successful control in large meetings and in small team projects can be vastly improved through mastering the skills taught in this course. Clients can re-play their worst meeting scenarios and edit for success.
Soyez sympa. Rembobinez : le recours habile au langage cinématographique peut donner du brio dans divers contextes professionnels et l’emporte souvent sur le jargon monocorde du management. Ce cours montre comment des films et séries télévisées ont inondé le milieu professionnel, en ayant progressivement une influence indéniable sur la définition du leadership dans la culture d’entreprise. Les participants apprennent à utiliser le langage et la gestuelle cinématographique de manière créative permettent d’améliorer la maîtrise de réunions d’ampleurs diverses. Nos clients peuvent rejouer leurs pires scénarios de réunion pour en faire des « blockbuster ».
