   The Medinge Group, a -based high-level on , will deliver a one-day at MIP, the Management Institute of Paris, on Friday, January 26, 2007. The event for MIP students and faculty will feature and dialogue with six of Medinge’s resident thinkers, all experts in their own sub-disciplines of branding, and all active practitioners in what one Medinge guru has called ‘the most misunderstood subject in business today.’ It’s viewed as a total-immersion all-day event, held behind closed doors.

In 2004, the group established the annual Brands with a Conscience list to recognize organizations who epitomize behaviour; in 2006 Medinge added a special category of recognition, named in honour of its late colleague Colin Morley, which acknowledges excellence by an NGO, in keeping with his humanistic .
   The Medinge Group maintains an online, automated speakers’ and experts’ bureau accessible through its website at www.medinge.org. In 2007, Medinge launches its newest online resource, The Journal of the Medinge Group, a digital anthology of papers and publications by Medinge members.
