In the dark winter of 2016, I visited the Gothic fairy tale city of Edinburgh to present at the International Studying Leadership Conference (ISLC).
My latest conference paper, ‘White Knights: Leadership as the heroicisation of whiteness’, is the result of much deliberation and confrontation since my first EGOS conference in Montréal last year.
When I attended my first European Group for Organization Studies colloquium in Montréal last year, I experienced an ecclesiastical epiphany.
The inaugural International Leadership Association Oceania conference began with a Maori waka tour. We intimately experienced the four seasons over five hours, enduring both scorching heat and icy rain as the waka coiled their way around Waitemata Harbour.
