Management thinking for the modern age

Peter DruckerPeter Drucker

Called the father of modern management, Peter Drucker, who died in 2005, continues to influence management and leadership thinking, owing to his far sighted ideas on the nature of modern work.

The Peter Drucker Society Europe is a practitioner-led, multi-stakeholder group that builds on Peter Drucker’s fundamental ideas and ideals with the aim of contributing to the evolution of management as a vital part of a functioning modern society.  

Global Drucker Forum 2016

Each year, the Drucker Society Europe hosts the Global Peter Drucker Forum, the world’s management forum, a crystallizing event where leaders and decision makers convene to discuss the future of management in a pragmatic and solution-oriented manner.

Nick Hixson and Gillian Donald are two of 4 Drucker Society Associates in the UK and Nick is the only small business specialist. As such he has access to materials on leadership and innovation from the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University in California which he has presented to business owners and university audiences.

As moderator and contributor to the Drucker blog series published in Harvard Business Review, Nick has early access to current and future management thinking from the world’s highest ranking thinkers in the prestigious Thinkers50

Every year, Nick and Gillian participate at the Global Drucker Forum in Vienna, meeting and talking to many leading management thinkers, and bringing those ideas back to share freely with a local SME and university audience via blogs and other media.

I hope they make a difference. Its All About You.”
