2023 Irish Academy of Management Annual Conference
University of Galway

Hosted by J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics, University of Galway

 

As businesses and organisations move to place the planet, people as well as profit at the centre of what they do, we need to better understand what this requires from leaders, managers and organisations. Sustainable leadership includes being authentic and committed, having a long-term perspective, as well as instilling and driving a meaningful organisational purpose for the public and private good. Business Schools and academics can play a key role in leading for a public good purpose and in doing so, educating around sustainable leadership and management. While it can be argued that conventional management and leadership theories fall short of what is needed, this conference will address questions around how organisations (including businesses and business schools) can lead with public good purpose, what sustainable leadership means and the challenges it will present as we move further into the 21st Century.

Keynote Speaker

Professor Martin Kitchener

We are delighted to announce Professor Martin Kitchener will deliver the keynote address at the conference. Martin is a professor of management at Cardiff Business School and chaired the Chartered Association of Business School’s Taskforce on Business School and Public Good. His research concentrates on issues of governance, change and performance in public services, and most recently in higher education. In the UK, he has led externally funded studies of hospital patient safety, line management in residential social work, and change in mental health. The outputs of his research are published widely and have had considerable impact on practice and policy. Martin’s insights on leadership with purpose and the public good missions of business schools will be invaluable to our conversations on understanding the meaning of sustainable leadership.
