Calderys Congress 2017 in Edinburgh, UK, May 26, 2017


Calderys Congress 2017

The Calderys Congress 2017 was held in Edinburgh, UK, May 7-10, 2017.

Calderys Management, BU Management and Operations, Sales and Marketing Managers from all regions met and worked together to tackle new challenges and to learn from each other, as well as to bridge those geographical and functional divides that are always present in a global business.

To build connections between participants and to facilitate the networking, teams were organized and tasked to work in workshops on Imerys leadership behaviours, on internal communication and on the "TOGETHER FOR MORE".

The participants welcomed Erin Meyer, author of "The Culture Map", INSEAD professor and winner of the 2015 Thinkers50 Radar Award. She explained how to work successfully and jointly face cross-cultural complexity, with teams spread across the world and coping with communication taking place mostly virtually, "making the best possible use of cultural differences." Watch her on:

Calderys Management presented the Calderys Marketing and Innovation strategy. To illustrate how these fit into the big picture of Imerys, the Congress also welcomed Vincent Lecerf, Imerys Group HR Director, and Thierry Materne, Imerys Group Innovation Director, both presenting the Imerys strategy on these topics.

The purpose of the congress and all of its activities was, once again, to further strengthen Calderys in our mission to deliver value to our customers - to enhance our strength to offer our customers a truly globally-networked company in order to reach our customers everywhere, with the best refractory solutions and services , in the true sense of TOGETHER FOR MORE.
