Discover This! A collection of ideas to spark your thinking, by Rita McGrath
After a two-year wait, I finally made it to Dublin to attend the Business Excellence Institute’s awards gala, at which I was inducted into their Excellence Hall of Fame. It was held at the Shelbourne Hotel in Dublin – a great group of attendees and delightful conversation, topped off with a Fireside Chat. And hey, why not have a little fun at an awards program?
We then headed to Vienna where we joined colleagues at the annual Global Peter Drucker Forum at the very glamorous Hofburg (royal palace). A great gabfest on the topic of performance, featuring many prominent leading thinkers, and a gala dinner as well!
