Event Description

There is still time to book for 'Exploring Frontiers 2013' limited number of rooms available

AMEDconference, 8/9 October

As leaders, managers and developers, what are our roles, and how could we address the key issues we face in these turbulent times?

Prepare to be surprised.

An AMEDconference is different from the norm.  No gurus on a pedestal or podium.  Instead, committed and creative peers engaging with each other inclusively in personal and professional development through conversations about themes they’re keen to explore.  At EF2013, we’ll come together for two days as co-inquirers to learn and contribute through Open Space interaction. This is a conference where you really do confer! 


How our Open Space is held
Over the two days there will be emerging and shifting clusters of simultaneous open conversations and engagement within a flexible framework around interesting issues.  Periodically, we’ll share interests, insights and observations with everyone through the Community Bulletin Board and Market Place.


One of the principles of Open Space is that “Whatever happens is the only thing that could have.”  So, without trying to pre-judge outcomes, you might....
o    Move your thinking / practice closer to a new frontier of learning and development
o    Explore issues of prime concern to you
o    Experience / explore alternative or complementary ways of thinking to yours
o    Engage in meaningful dialogue with fellow professionals
o    Co-create new ideas and opportunities for yourself and other people

Co-creating our agenda
People who care passionately about all aspects of Leadership and Development have the right and the responsibility to do something about it.  You might find some inspiration in recent and forthcoming articles in the AMEDjournal e-Organisations and People.  However, it’s up to you to set the agenda by bringing, and inviting others to discuss, your own burning issues and interests, and to contribute to theirs.

To escape Victorian London, Edward VII (then Prince of Wales) built a retreat in Bournemouth. We’ll be enjoying the same relaxing atmosphere and freedom on 8th / 9th October. The Langtry Manor hotel.

Hi, I notice my name doesn't appear as an attendee at the conference but I have paid up, received confirmation and will be coming! Looking forward to it and to being by the sea.

Looking forward to October and connecting. I'm now a full time PhD student, exploring matters metacognitive - like does metacognition matter? I think so, as long as you're not too exclusive on the definition of the 'cog' part. What a lovely chance we'll have to reflect and co-create.

The dates are perfect - thank you.  I noticed the  Frontiers conversation when I was on the network page. There are days when I despair about the future of the democratic process and civic engagement - having a forum to talk about how to make the change/be part of the change in our own lives, work and communities is a discussion I definitely want to be part of.  Away with clients in Ottawa this week- so only checking in sparodically.
