Symposium

Every fall, HarbourClub hosts the leading symposium on the Swiss communications scene. During the annual get-together for communications specialists, a selection of distinguished speakers from the field or from academia, as well as CEOs and politicians, provide new insights and outlooks. These are then discussed in depth with practical examples in several breakout sessions.

Each year, we are hosted by a member company – in 2019 by Swiss Re, and before that by Swiss Federal Railways (SBB), Novartis, ABB, Swiss Post, Zurich Insurance, Roche and Helsana. As well as listening to some high-profile international speakers, the 200 or so participants also had the opportunity to meet CEOs face to face, while HarbourClub members provided an insight into the world of CCOs at special breakout sessions.

The last HarbourClub Symposium took place on November 14, 2019. Click here for more information. No symposium was held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 symposium is scheduled to be held on November 18.

The annual HarbourClub Symposium always provides me with valuable impetus and prompts me to keep on rethinking how I perceive my own role as a communications manager.
