Case studies

A brief sample of comments from the First Global Conference on Creating Value Leicester Castle Business School, De Montfort University, 23-24 May 2018 on which Prof Peter Stokes co-led the design and convenorship team:

… a great conference. The range and versatility of the presentations was truly innovative and bold.

A brilliant success … a perfect example of what [can be done] at Leicester Castle Business School (De Montfort University)

It was a great intellectual journey in the field of value management. A lot of inspiration for creating value was received Congratulations on a great inaugural conference.

It was privilege to be there.

It was excellent. It was really interesting and had a lovely feel to the event. Lots of dialogue.

I learned a great deal and met lots of interesting folks… Extremely well organized. …. people commented on how much they learned within their own domains… Again, though, thanks to [the] whole team for a flawlessly executed and challenging event.

The stage seems very well set for the next conference in New York.
