Hosting the 25th Business and HR Forum Bern

Valuable insights, exciting speakers and memorable appearances by former world-class runner Anita Weyermann and nationally recognized author and cabaret artist Baenz Friedli: this year’s Business and HR Forum Bern by WKS KV Bildung was a great success with over 1,000 guests in attendance. The evening’s overriding theme: Curse or blessing? It’s a matter of context!

Influencer marketing – what is personal, what is commercial?

Top athletes and advertising in social media are a delicate field. Where does personal mail stop, where does commerce begin? The judgement of the Fairness Commission in the case of Jolanda Neff has caused a stir, the uncertainty is great. After the discussion at the sports forum “Influencer and the case of Jolanda Neff” it is clear, according to the experts, that she has not done much wrong – she is rather a victim.

PluSport Panel Discussion on Assisted Living and Cyborgs

Disabled today, wired tomorrow? Are artificial assistance systems a curse or a blessing? What does Assisted Living mean? Will cyborgs become reality? Janine Geigele discussed interesting topics like these with those affected and scientists at the panel discussion at the Swiss Handicap Fair in Lucerne.

Journalists as undesirable creatures?

Football clubs make access to the stadium difficult for unpopular journalists, and press representatives are fobbed off with carefully formulated statements from their exponents: Have media representatives got themselves into this situation? Are they increasingly the undesirable creature? Interesting discussion by with Janine Geigele, Georg Heitz, Matthias Hüppi and Ueli Kägi.

Influencer marketing in sports – what’s okay and what isn’t?

Athletes and advertising on social media? This is a hard nut to crack, because: Where does the personal opinion end? Where does the commercial interest begin? And what does the recent rebuke by the Lauterkeitskommission to well-known Swiss athletes mean for influencer marketing in sport? Janine Geigele and Thomas Meier from the Swiss Fairness Commission will be discussing this at the Swiss Sports Forum in Lucerne on 28 November 2019.

Presentation for the Danish-Swiss Chamber of Commerce

Geigele Communications likes to think outside the box of sport. For example the 10th anniversary of the Danish-Swiss Chamber of Commerce in Zurich, which Janine Geigele hosted in the Dolder Grand. An enriching experience with exciting guests and a prominent model: Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. At the speed painting, his portrait was finished after 4:59 minutes.

Live from the Laver Cup

From 20th to 22nd September, Janine Geigele picked up the live microphone for the Swiss private broadcaster TV24. The experienced sports journalist hosted the Laver Cup matches in Geneva together with experts such as former tennis pro Marco Chiudinelli, tennis coach Mark Krippendorf and Roger Federer coach Severin Lüthi. The exclusive live broadcast of the matches was very well received.

Many celebrities and over 1500 spectators

She hosted the opening ceremony of the Laver Cup and introduced the two teams to a large audience at the reception. The Captains Björn Borg (Team Europe), John McEnroe (Team World) and of course Rod Laver, the namesake of the tournament, were present. Not to mention Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Conversation with the Maestro

«I miss the french speaking part of Switzerland», said Roger Federer at the beginning of the conversation about the 2019 Laver Cup in Geneva. The exceptional athlete was very relaxed before the duel between Team USA and Team Europe. At the invitation of his sponsor Sunrise, the four-time father talked to Janine Geigele about his experiences in Geneva, car trips with his family and the fact that he always books his holidays first thing at the beginning of the year.
