The ICIR, International Certificate in Investor Relations programme will be held in Santiago, Chile on 9th and 10th November 2017 SANTIAGO, CHILE / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2017 / GovernArt and The Investor Relations Society of the United Kingdom (GovernArt / IR Society) have signed an agreement to deliver the International Certificate in Investor Relations in Latin America. The International Certificate in Investor Relations is an internationally recognised qualification for the investor relations profession. The qualification allows successful candidates to demonstrate their knowledge of the financial and market environment, and the regulatory and reporting requirements for listed companies, along with a sound understanding of the principles of investor relations, which will enable them to operate competently and safely. The ICIR is a valuable benchmark for those already in the profession and an essential prerequisite for those seeking to work in investor relations. With 1,200 successful candidates from more than 25 countries, the ICIR is firmly established as the leading IR qualification worldwide. To obtain the Certificate, candidates have to pass an examination comprising 60 multiple-choice questions, based on the topics set out in the syllabus. John Gollifer, General Manager of The IR Society commented, "Obtaining the Certificate in IR provides international recognition as a qualified IR practitioner, demonstrates competence and growing expertise, and enhances career development," adding that "the Certificate is suitable for anyone working in investor relations or related professions - for example, corporate communications and sustainability - or considering a move into investor relations." The ICIR currently runs in the UK, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Middle East, Nigeria, Russia, Singapore and Sri Lanka. The agreement grants GovernArt an exclusive right to market and promote the ICIR in Chile and Latin America and to take registrations for candidates on behalf of the IR Society. The Certificate programme will be delivered in the English language over two days, including key contents, such as: an introduction to the financial markets, equity investors and investment principles, disclosure guidance and transparency rules, corporate governance and international regulation and compliance, market valuation of a company, and key issues in communicating ESG corporate practices. "We are very honoured to work with the IR Society to bring the ICIR to Latin America. It is clear for us that the Certificate is the gold standard in terms of Investor Relations, a must for any Investor Relations Officer who aims to be at the forefront in terms of knowledge and good corporate practices in this area," said German Heufemann, Managing Partner of GovernArt. According to Heufemann, the Certificate represents not only a good way to update knowledge of international best practices, but also a practical course to understand the key role of investor relations and sustainability teams of Latin American companies in integrating ESG issues in corporate communications with international investors. In his view, "international investors are actively pursuing a fiduciary role and looking for long-term returns, so they are very rigorous in looking at, analysing and evaluating financial and extra-financial considerations of the companies they invest in - such as environmental, social and corporate governance matters - which impose several challenges for the performance of effective investor relations and sustainability managers, a key piece in the delivery of timely and quality information to the capital market." Heufemann also noted, "In the last 2 years in Latin America we have seen how the disclosure of financial and ESG information has gone from being something desirable on the part of companies, to be a practically inescapable necessity." Faced with the changing landscape, John Gollifer also considers that, "The agreement reached between GovernArt and the Investor Relations Society is a timely response to delivering a Certificate that combines a principles-based framework for IR and a practical way to give companies the knowledge and tools for the development of the IR profession. In this way, companies can benefit from having a guide to the development of their investor relations strategies, and can focus their resources where they really create value for the organization, according to their industry." John Gollifer has been the General Manager and a director of the UK's Investor Relations Society since 2012. Prior to this, John spent 11 years as Senior Vice President at the Singapore Exchange, Southeast Asia's largest market operator, where he was responsible for investor relations, among other roles in strategy and communications. John established the IR Professionals Association of Singapore in 2006, is a multiple IR award winner and created and taught an IR course at the Singapore Management University from 2009 to 2012. Trained as a banker, John spent 15 years in Asia and Europe in corporate finance and equity capital markets. Since joining the IR Society, which works in partnership with other IR associations, John has led IR training in Dubai, Indonesia, Nigeria, Thailand and Turkey, as well as in the UK. The Investor Relations Society (IR Society) is a membership organisation that exists to promote best practice investor relations in the UK and beyond. It is run by IR professionals for IR professionals. Established in 1980, the IR Society's mission is to promote best practice in investor relations; to support the professional development of its members; to represent their views to regulatory bodies, the investment community and government; and to act as a forum for issuers and the investment community.

G. Riley Mills, COO and co-founder of the premier global communication skills training firm Pinnacle Performance Company and co-author of The Pin Drop Principle, will deliver two effective communication skills sessions at the 2017 Association for Talent Development (ATD) International Conference and Expo in Atlanta, Ga. The sessions, entitled, “Influence Emotion to Motivate Action: Communication Techniques to Engage Any Audience,” will teach attendees how to deliver clear, effective, and persuasive communication using the secret techniques performers and leaders have used for centuries. Attendees will learn how to convey clear, concise, and strong objectives; quickly establish credibility; encourage participation; deliver feedback; and influence behavior to achieve desired learning outcomes. The first session is from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23rd. The second session is from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 24th. “Increasing employee engagement tops most CEOs' annual wish lists since disengaged employees cost U.S. companies $450 to $550 billion annually and research suggests improving managers’ communication skills is a key to achieving this objective,” said Mills. “In a recent ATD study, 83 percent of respondents indicated that communication is the most important skill area related to managerial success. This makes sense because managers put strategic plans into action, secure employee buy-in on company strategies, ensure day-to-day operations run smoothly, and communicate progress up and down the organization.” G. Riley Mills has taught effective communication skills to executives and CEOs in more than 30 countries. He has guest-lectured or delivered keynotes at such events and institutions as the ATD International Conference & Exposition, Columbia University, London Chamber of Commerce, New York University, Young Presidents' Organization, Cox School of Business, Southern Methodist University, Learning and Skills Conference (London), Society for Human Resource Management (regional chapters), Singapore Management University, and Manchester United.

In "Generalizing Generalizability in Information Systems Research," Lee and Baskerville (2003) try to clarify generalization and classify it into four types. Unfortunately, their account is problematic. We propose repairs. Central among these is our balance-of-evidence argument that we should adopt the view that Hume's problem of induction has a solution, even if we do not know what it is. We build upon this by proposing an alternative classification of induction. There are five types of generalization: (1) theoretical, (2) within-population, (3) cross-population, (4) contextual, and (5) temporal, with theoretical generalization being across the empirical and theoretical levels and the rest within the empirical level. Our classification also includes two kinds of inductive reasoning that do not belong to the domain of generalization. We then discuss the implications of our classification for information systems research. Copyright © 2012.

Drawing on the adaptive control hypothesis (Green & Abutalebi, 2013), we investigated whether bilinguals' disparate interactional contexts modulate task-switching performance. Seventy-five bilinguals within the single-language context (SLC) and 58 bilinguals within the dual-language context (DLC) were compared in a typical task-switching paradigm. Given that DLC bilinguals switch between languages within the same context, while SLC bilinguals speak only one language in one environment and therefore rarely switch languages, we hypothesized that the two groups' stark difference in their interactional contexts of conversational exchanges would lead to differences in switch costs. As predicted, DLC bilinguals showed smaller switch costs than SLC bilinguals. Our diffusion-model analyses suggest that DLC bilinguals' benefits in switch costs are more likely driven by task-set reconfiguration than by proactive interference. Our findings underscore the modulating role of the interactional context of conversational exchanges in task switching. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.

Workers in a bucket brigade production system perform unproductive travel when they walk to get more work from their colleagues. We introduce a new design of bucket brigades to reduce unproductive travel. Under the new design, each worker works on one side of an aisle when he proceeds in one direction and works on the other side when he proceeds in the reverse direction. We propose simple rules for workers to share work under the new design and find a sufficient condition for the system to self-balance. Numerical examples suggest that the improvement in throughput by the new design can be as large as 30%. Even with a 20% reduction in labor, the new design can still increase throughput by 7%. © 2011 INFORMS.
