We are happy to invite you to our 1st Annual PhD Conference. All SMS PhD students will be presenting their current work and research ideas to faculty and peers, and would like to see you at this event and have your constructive feedback on their work. There will be plenty of time for questions and feedback during the presentations and coffee-breaks. We are also pleased to announce the keynote speech by Prof Bernard Burnes. We hope that you can join us at this event. Attendance is free, but the space is limited and first come first served basis.
Bernard Burnes is Professor of Organisational Change at Stirling Management School. He is one of the leading international authorities on organisational change. His research covers organisational change in its broadest sense. In particular, he is concerned with the way in which different approaches to change promote or undermine sustainability and ethical behaviour in organisations.
