Over the past weeks ICW has been linking up on various fronts through technology.
15th April ICW supported Warwick University teaching 30 students across China as part of their MSc programme on Reputation and relationships.
17th April David Hawkins our COO held a 2-hour talk hosted by BSI China to hundreds of business government people providing insight to the work of ICW and the potential in these difficult times to harness the power of collaborative working. This was the prelude to a series of online courses planned for May.
21st April The ISO committee for ISO 44001, chaired by David Hawkins and supported by members of the ICW community, held its first virtual meeting as a result of having to cancel the planned meeting in Ottawa focused on moving forward ISO 44003 principles for SME collaboration.
