WCPT Congress Update - February 2019

WCPT Congress Update
February 2019 
Final call for Indaba proposals
Share your experience at an Indaba session and submit your proposal by 27th February.

Want to share your knowledge or seek help from your colleagues at WCPT Congress 2019? In an Indaba session you can help create content and lead conversations – and you can propose a session NOW.

There are three different types of Indaba sessions: 
  • Got a problem to solve? Harness the power of global thinking to address local challenges and use the collective experience of delegates to help find solutions to a local problem.
  • My light-bulb moment. Has there been a pivotal event that has impacted your professional life? What can we all learn from it?
  • Get on the soapbox in your preferred language. You may prefer to discuss a topic or issue in your own language.
