General Conference Overview
Visions of what is ahead coupled with high levels of uncertainty and ambiguity, rapid economic, political, social, technological and organizational changes are demanding new leadership and management which are passionately discussed and debated around the globe. The increasing value and extraordinary leverage knowledge offers concerns leaders in both private and public sectors worldwide. In the global economy of today, it is not knowledge alone that counts more than anything else. It is the continued acquisition and expansion of knowledge and the honing of skills in the domains of management, higher education, leadership, and technology and their interdependencies and interrelationships that are very much sought after. In today’s competitive and fast-paced global environment, education is at a premium because of the high value creation potential knowledge workers bring to organizations. The real assets in this economy are ideas, innovative and creative products and services which enhance the organization’s competitive advantage in the global marketplace.

All conference participants, including presenters and attendees, must register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. This rule applies to presenters of all session formats, discussants, plenary leaders, workshop leaders, panelists, and symposium participants.
