Workshop Your Ideas
November 5, 2009 § Leave a comment
One way to zero in on the Golden Nugget contained within your innovative ideas is to present them at academic conferences. Indeed, good ideas are made great by putting them through a rigorous peer review process.
Attending professional workshops and academic conferences allows you to hone your ideas through peer review, Q & A sessions, and critical feedback sessions with business leaders and/or professors. As an added bonus, you will also make connections with potential employers and future colleagues.
In addition, workshops and conferences foster camaraderie among business students and professionals alike by giving attendees a platform on which to discuss their multi-national thoughts on leadership, business practices, and global economic responsibility.
One such conference came across my radar the other day. It is the “Managing Beyond Values–Beyond Culture and Generations,” hosted by the MacEwan School of Business in Edmonton, Canada on May 3 and 4, 2010. The objective of the conference (as listed on their website) is to create, “a forum for discussing the role of management education in developing a new generation of leaders capable of managing the contemporary challenges we face in our world of transformation.”
We encourage you to participate in the “Call for papers” for this conference. Submissions should “explore current topics in management education and the role of values in management training and development.” Drafting a proposal, submitting it, and attending this conference is an excellent way to foster your professional and academic development as a current or former MSGL student.
Deadline for submissions is November 30, 2009.
Notice of acceptance occurs on December 20, 2009.
Please submit an extended abstract for blind peer review to:
Sara Caetano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
