LEAD in Asia Conference

Registration now opens
Early bird deadline 6 Nov 2015
I would like to invite you to attend the inaugural LEAD in Asia Conference will be held at the Nusa Dua Beach Hotel, Bali, Indonesia, from the 20th to the 22nd January 2016.
Leadership excellence and development in Asia is the main topic of this conference for obvious reasons. Asian economy in the past fifty years has grown faster than that of North America or Western Europe. The number of Fortune Global 2000 firms that choose ASEAN as their headquarters are on the rapid increase. Unfortunately scholarly work on leadership in this region is not in sync with the steady economic growth. No doubt Asia presents unparalleled opportunities for study of leadership. As the vast diversity of culture, language, philosophy, and religion of the 700 million people within the region is better understood and documented, more contextualized and cross-cultural research on leadership quickly becomes an important research agenda. Clearly imports of constructs and models developed in the West insufficient to tackle Asia’s unique leadership challenges. And with over 40% of its 245 million population are under the age of 25, Indonesia represents a fitting place from which leadership scholars and practitioners can showcase their research, brainstorm novel ideas, and develop networks and collaborations pertinent to leadership in Asia.
The enchanting location of Bali and exciting programme will give you quite a unique and memorable conference experience. I look forward to welcoming you to Bali in January 2016.
