HEIDELBERG, GERMANY—Jan. 13, 2011—The Print Media Academies in Germany and Kuala Lumpur together with Heidelberg Thailand will jointly be hosting the next Winter University 2011 in Bangkok, Thailand, from March 20-24, 2011. The four-day intensive seminar at the Shangri-La Hotel is geared to participants from all over the world, offering them the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the sector and share experience and strategies for success.

“The pressure to compete and changing market dynamics are continuing to increase. Managers in the print media industry therefore always need to be up to date on current trends in the industry and comprehensive, sustainable methods of strategic management,” says Martina Brand, head of international business training at the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg.

That’s why the seminar will be focusing on the different aspects of business management in particular. Further presentations and discussions and an onsite customer visit will spark new ideas within the areas of finance, controlling, leadership as well as marketing and management. Participants will also have the chance to discuss their own experience with experts and colleagues and get valuable feedback.

The course will be led by Stan Solomidis and Martina Brand. Solomidis is the owner and director of Synthesis Australia Pty Ltd. Solomidis sits on the board of some very competitive and marketing oriented printing businesses and this experience coupled with his corporate experience makes him well equipped to assist printing managers who are looking to improve their firm’s performance.

The Winter University has established itself within the print media industry as an important international forum. Executives from all over the world use the opportunity to share country-specific experience and network in an informal atmosphere. Previous venues have included Shanghai, Hongkong, Moscow, Sao Paulo, Capetown and Dubai.

The location for the event is the Print Shangri La Hotel in Bangkok. The seminar fee is EUR 1,650 plus VAT ($2,182), which includes lunch and drinks on each day as well as a team event and all seminar handouts. As the number of participants is limited, early registration is recommended. The seminar language is English.
