The 2015 Global Peter Drucker Writing Challenge

The 2015 Global Peter Drucker Writing Challenge

Take part in the Global Peter Drucker Challenge contest to qualify for participation in one of the leading conferences on management: The Global Peter Drucker Forum. The forum is an annual conference aimed at advancing the development of management thinking and practice in order to respond to the changing requirements in our societies. The 7th Global Peter Drucker Forum will take place in Vienna, Austria,
on 5 and 6 November 2015. Topic is: “Claiming our Humanity – Managing in the Digital Age”

The Global Peter Drucker Challenge is a contest for students and professionals from the ages of 18 to 35. Organized by the Peter Drucker Society Europe, the contest aims at raising awareness of the works and humanistic values of Peter Drucker among young people –
the new generation poised to build on a management philosophy that puts the human being at its center.

In 2015 we invite you to think out of the box and to submit an essay covering the topic “Managing Oneself in the Digital Age”. The theme will challenge you to take a look inside yourself to place out the strength that no one else possesses.

Seize your opportunity in the “students” or “professionals” category! We are looking forward to your contribution.

Win a-once-in-a-lifetime experience: Vienna is waiting for YOU!
