Please join us for an all-day post-publication gathering in Oxford, at Oxford Brookes University.
Engage in meaningful dialogue and generate new ideas, knowledge and understanding about the uncertain conditions in which we practise coaching and mentoring. Interact with leading authors and colleagues. Circulate around three active networks for developing coach/mentors. Influence new policies and practices. Share insights, ideas, contexts and models to inform your future practice and shape new developments in coach/mentoring and writing.
We are delighted to announce that Winter 2014 and Spring 2015 e-O&P authors Bob Garvey, Julie Hay, David Doughty, Kim Stephenson, Pauline Willis and Bob MacKenzie have already confirmed their attendance.
Please note that prior reading of articles would be helpful, but not essential.
There will be no lengthy formal presentations. Rather, we'll engage as equal participants in facilitated group discussions around key themes arising from articles in two special themed editions of AMED's journal e-Organisations & People (e-O&P).
As well as facilitated and open space/world cafe style parallel group sessions, there will also be lunchtime poster/short video displays. If you would like to contribute to this, please feel free to bring along an A3 or A4 poster to share and discuss. Posters should illustrate ideas generated from the e-O&P journal articles, or highlight additional themes concerning the future of coaching and mentoring. They can be on paper/card or laminate. Similarly, short (+/- 3-minute) videos are also welcome, though contributors will have to supply their own laptops, with fully charged batteries. Please give us at least three days’ notice if you’re planning to contribute to this lunchtime poster session. Participants are limited to one poster each, whatever its format.
Cost: £35. This nominal participation fee also covers refreshments and a light lunch. Click here to obtain your free complimentary copy of the Spring 2015 edition of e-O&P (though a small optional voluntary donation to AMED's development funds would be most welcome!).
Everyone is welcome!
