Reflecting on the 8th Developing Leadership Capacity Conference

This conference was held at the Ashridge Management School in Hertfordshire, UK, 12-14 July 2016.  This was a really wonderful location for a conference as these images indicate:

It was a small more intimate conference which really fostered networking and a collaborative spirit. Engaging with some of the best thinking and practice in leadership development was not only an intellectual treat but also it really helped me to integrate much of the thinking I have been doing about where leadership development is heading.

About Kay Hempsall

For a living I teach (online and face-to-face) in the management discipline at a regional university in Australia. I am also part way through my PhD studies investigating leadership development strategies in higher education in Australia. My interests are mostly around learning. As a result I read a lot of non fiction, but I do also read fiction across a range of genres. I really like any book, or movie, that stimulates my thinking, generating new connections and thoughts about human evolution and endeavour. I spent the first 22 years of my life in England and since then have lived in Australia.
