I’m writing this from the VIP room at the MCT HR conference in Istanbul (it’s good to be a speaker). The conference was kicked off by some good presentations:
- Lars Kolind launched his crusade against bureaucracy
- Elisabet Sahtouris used her background in evolutionary biology to show us that businesses are living organisms
- Ricardo Semler spoke via satellite from Sao Paulo on how Semco manages to do things incredibly different and incredibly well
After a very nice lunch, there are several sessions to choose from this afternoon – we’ll see who wins the race.
And of course the best part of any conference is making new friends and having great conversations – and this conference certainly doesn’t disappoint. More updates later.
