2010 Conference

Innovative Leadership in the Face of Crises


Our theme for 2010 was innovation. There are few times in history when the need to draw upon our capacity to invent and to marshal creative change has been more pressing or more apparent. At a time of worldwide economic recession, we are faced with the problems of global climate change; a devastating natural disaster in Haiti; insurgencies in Afghanistan and Iraq; civil conflict in Sudan, Congo and elsewhere where governance is weak and leaders are predatory. While at times it seems that our political system fails to address dangers until they are transformed into crises, it is our capacity as a society to invent and to rally that reassures and serves us in the end.
