One of the things I really enjoy when travelling is meeting people for the first time. My doctoral research journey provides a case in point. It has brought me into contact with many interesting people, including members of the international academic and governance communities. The conversations and experiences that I've been privileged to be part of have helped me gain new insights; form opinions; and, map out the next steps of my journey. The sights and sounds of unfamiliar cities, and the conversations with hotel staff, shopkeepers and other locals, have added context, colour and richness.
When I am in England and Europe in November, to present a paper at ECMLG'13, I hope to continue conversations started in Bangkok back in February; to start new conversations and build new relationships; and crucially, to help others grapple with the demanding topic of how governance can help improve business performance.
If you'd like to join the conversation or arrange a meeting, please contact me, so that we can find a date and time that works best for you. I'm available to meet anyone, anywhere.
Thoughts on corporate governance, strategy and effective board practice; our place in the world; and, other things that catch my attention.
