3rd European Conference on Management, Leadership and Governance

19-20 April 2007

 

Conference Co-Chairs: Dan Remenyi, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland and

Chris Turner, University of Winchester, UK

Programme Chair: Mike Hart, University of Winchester, UK

Keynote Speaker: Malcolm Berry, University of Reading, UK

 

I was delighted to have the opportunity of Chairing the ECMLG event at the University of Winchester this year. This was the third European Conference on Management, Leadership and Governance.

Our University is well acquainted with international visitors, with students from some 53 different countries studying here. We were therefore delighted to welcome participants from Europe, Middle East, South Africa and the USA to join the British contingent.

Although we formally began the conference on Thursday morning, a number of people met on Wednesday evening for a welcome drink at the Winchester Hotel this was a great opportunity for old friends to meet up and for new acquaintances to be made.

The conference opened with an interesting talk from Malcolm Berry from the University of Reading on the topic of Management, Leadership and Governance in a Sustainable World.

This was followed by research paper presentations in two streams, which this year represented the diversity of research that the subject brings to the academic debate. There was a healthy mix of empirical and theoretical papers and topics ranged from the technical to the strategic.

On Thursday afternoon Nigel Laurie led a Socratic dialogue on What is Good Management and those who participated certainly enjoyed a stimulating interactive session conversation continued well into the evening.

A great feature of this conference is making time for participants to talk with each other and to understand what other research is being conducted around the world. This was certainly achieved on Thursday evening with a most enjoyable conference dinner arranged at the Winchester Guild Hall. I think I can speak for everyone that friends were made and for some, new ideas for future liaisons formulated. The photos posted on the photo gallery speak a thousand words.

After some further research presentations on Friday morning, Malcolm Berry was joined by Scott Lichtenstein from Henley Management College, Luis Perera from PricewaterhouseCoopers in Santiago and Rodney Clare from EDS in the UK for a lively panel discussion on Leadership issues.

I believe that it was a great event, and much was gained by all who attended. I would like to thank everyone who contributed this year to the conference, and I am looking forward to the 4th European Conference in 2008.

Chris Turner, Conference chair.
