(TR) We are pleased to announce that David Noguera, President of Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) Spain, will be presenting at Brand Week 2018 event in Istanbul, Turkey on the 8th of November in a session titled “Inspiring Stories from MSF”.
International medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) will be attending this year’s Brand Week Istanbul event with a 25-min presentation from David Noguera, President of MSF Spain. One of Turkey’s major marketing, communication, business and innovation events, Brand Week Istanbul will take place at Zorlu PSM between 5-9 November with the theme of “Ideas Without Borders”.
During his speech, David Noguera will focus on how innovation and needs-based adaptable solutions drive MSF’s work to deliver high-quality medical care to patients deprived of medical care and humanitarian assistance in the contexts of war, epidemics and natural disasters.
Noguera will also relate hope-inspiring human stories in the face of medical humanitarian crises that are increasing in both complexity and scale around the world, as well as the challenges and opportunities to prepare MSF for the next decade of medical interventions.
Silvia Moriana, MSF’s Innovation and Transformation Lead in Barcelona, will also accompany Noguera throughout the event.
The session will be held at Zorlu PSM’s “Inspirational Hall” within the scope of “Creativity & Lovemarks Day.”
