ecch connect - issue 06

Dear colleague

Welcome to the June issue of ecch connect!

In this issue we invite you to Rio de Janeiro, share some top case teaching tips, and ask a vital question: mushrooms or supermodels?

Firstly, we’re thrilled to announce our first workshops in Brazil. This exciting move underlines our commitment to sharing our case method expertise worldwide. Book early to ensure you don’t miss out.

Our special feature on case teaching provides some invaluable inside knowledge on how to improve your classroom techniques – and why a case method teacher can be compared to an orchestra conductor.

Finally, our featured cases cover a range of fascinating topics, including a massive turnaround at the UK’s British Museum; gambling on the future with Royal Reels (from our new Kellogg collection); achieving the impossible in Ethiopia; and the story of Yue Sai in China, where home-grown supermodels couldn’t compare with home-grown mushrooms.

Best wishes
The ecch team
