As part of the associated meetings of the upcoming 58th ABU General Assembly, we are organising our annual Quality Management Workshop on Tuesday, 5 October 2021 at 2 p.m. MYT (GMT +8).

This workshop is meant for mid-level to senior-level media managers at ABU members seeking new tools to develop the quality, credibility and efficiency of their organisations. The workshop will also cover the ISAS MEDIA 9001 international standard which provides key management tools for media managers.

Under the main theme of this year’s ABU General Assembly “Media Reset: Serving the People, Planet and Peace”, this workshop will explore how quality management can contribute to reset the media and make them more prone to bring together these three items : people, environment and peace. This workshop will provide participants with a sound insight into key management requirements on how to achieve this goal. Examples of information processing by the Swiss Public Service Broadcaster RTS will illustrate the topic.

The workshop will be conducted by Dr David Balme, CEO at Challenge Optimum, S.A., the French-speaking leader in management systems consulting, training and software.

If you wish to participate, please register here.
