After two years of pandemic, we are very happy to resume the organisation of our study tours which are so useful to help leaders, managers and project managers discover other ways of doing things. In May 2022, NWE will organise a unique study tour to Germany, entitled “Best of Local”, dedicated to digital subscription, data and products.
It is in our DNA at New World Encounters: the professional exchange across borders and industries about innovation and transformation. While there is no standard answer for innovation and transformation, we are convinced that an open exchange with colleagues who have previously followed the same path will be inspiring and ultimately profitable.
We love working on bringing people together to exchange ideas in conferences, webinars or trainings inspired people. But if there is an event format that gets our full enthusiasm this is: the study tour. Rarely have we seen people so happy as study tour participants after a day full of visits and new experiences in a sometimes-unknown culture, or after having discussions nothing short of enlightening with their fellow participants.
In our opinion, here are the key factors for the wonderful results:
- Travelling opens the mind
- It puts you outside your comfort zone just enough for you to use your mind in a different way, to unleash your creativity
- You feel compelled to let your shield drop and be open to the new and to the change.
- The experiences, the stimulating environments of the tours, the experts and your fellow participants have a transformational impact on all people involved.
- Last but not least, it is a lot of fun 😊
After a tour people said they experienced the steepest learning curve ever and at home they did implement many changes that were inspired by the discussions during the tour.
What does this mean for our media world?
More than ever, the media must accelerate their projects and mature their strategic thinking much faster. So there’s nothing like a study trip to meet colleagues from all over the world, in order to get inspired, reinforce or reconsider their choices.
The study tours provide publishers with exclusive first-hand information to better understand the inevitable transformation of organisations, products and skills.
