…thoughts on and about my PhD journey and beyond…

I’ve just returned from a wonderful conference on the study of leadership, held at the University of Auckland.  These conferences have usually been held in the UK so it gave me a chance to expand my networks and find out about all sorts of interesting activities in 2009.  The ones I am planning to attend are marked with **.

    • Hi Joseph,
      Thanks for your message. There are lots of conferences on the subject of leadership and management aren’t there? I’ve mentioned a few here on this blog that I know of.

      There is also a series of free leadership web based seminars run by LeadCap in India. They run at 10 am on Saturday mornings (Indian time). A colleague of mine gave a presentation last weekend and I’ve been asked to do one in September. I think you will find them useful too (see http://www.leadcap.org.

      Kind regards,
