#EventprofReads: Week 71

Here’s this week’s #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

That fewer large companies are run by women, than by men named John, in The New York Times Glass Ceiling Index:

“…most companies understand that an all-male board looks bad, and so most of them appoint at least one woman, although only a minority bother to appoint more than one.”

That First Lady, Melania Trump, demonstrated her #eventprof skillsetfor the Macrons’ state banquet at the White House, on CNN:

“…Mrs. Trump selected every item and every detail for the dinner, from the entrée to the chair cushions.”

That apparently, there’s a global pilot shortage, in TechCrunch:

“…the number of active pilots in the US has declined from over 800,000 in 1980 to barely 600,000 in 2017, a quarter of whom are student pilots, a certificate for which you need no experience at all.”

That global buyers convened in London to experience the best of Britain’s business events at the #MeetGB event, in M&IT:

“… I was surprised and excited by the range of venues available and especially to see venues that have such a rich history. I’ve had some excellent meetings at MeetGB and have learnt so much more than I expected.”

And finally…How AI anxiety may create millions of new jobs for real humans, in Fast Company:

“…the downsides of AI systems disproportionately affect groups that are already disadvantaged by factors such as race, gender, and socio-economic background.”
