EUFIC at the EFAD conference: Social media training & ENLP leadership workshop

16 August 2018

EUFIC looks forward to the 2018 annual conference of EFAD – the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians – which is celebrating its 40th anniversary on 28 & 29 September in Rotterdam this year!

At the conference, over 70 speakers will present the latest in dietetic research and practice on a wide range of topics relevant to dietitians today and explore future areas of work for dietitians.

EUFIC is delighted to be a partner of the conference and to contribute by chairing and participating in a hands-on social media training for dietitians, and by the active involvement in the facilitation of a leadership workshop by the ENLP – the European Nutrition Leadership Platform (see below).

Session: Hands-on social media training for dietitians

Jointly with Eat Well Global, EUFIC is organising a practical training on how to effectively build and manage an online presence for dietitians. The participants will not only get tips and tricks on how to make the most out of their content and posting, they will also get an insight on how to best engage and manage their community of followers, to eventually build a strong professional online presence.


Who: Dietitians interested in (starting) social media

When: Saturday 29 September, from 11.15 to 12.45

Where: Rotterdam Hall (within the conference venue - World Trade Trade Centre)

EUFIC will also be holding a pre-conference workshop to give participants “A taste of ENLP Leadership” covering topics such as leadership styles and emotional intelligence. Registration is required and participants will be acknowledged with a certificate of attendance or accreditation.

Workshop: A taste of ENLP leadership

Raymond Gemen, Senior Manager at EUFIC and ENLP Board member, is jointly organising an interactive workshop on leadership. Dietitians are uniquely placed in the public health and clinical practice and trained to use the most up-to-date scientific research on food, health and disease to promote healthy lifestyles and healthy eating. They may, however, benefit from training on non-scientific skills such as leadership and strategic influence, to be empowered to become leaders in their fields and ensure a strong impact on nutrition and health.
