Conference program released

This week we are proud to release the 2015 SLaM Conference program and introduce the workshop leaders in the Programmed Strand. (See link below for the program.)

The Programmed Strand will be facilitated by Geoff Berry, who will introduce in-depth workshops led by some of the SLaM field’s most experienced scholars and practitioners. Each workshop leader provides a powerful, emerging question about their practice within our field of Spirituality Leadership and Management.

What unanswered leadership question will you be bringing to the conference?

Register for the conference now and get the Early Bird rate (ends on18th June).



Colin Pitson, one of the founders of the original SLaM Network, is facilitating “From worry to wonder through mindful curiosity”: “I have moved from left-brain to right-brain thinking – using the mind to manage and regulate information and energy flow.”

Joseph Loewy, who specialises in the graphic communication of knowledge, is facilitating “Femergy: Leading with authenticity”: “Originally an artist, I have spent most of my working life in the advertising business. I am now drawing people’s ideas in business settings… Where did we come from? Where are we going? And how do we get there?” 

Deborah Lange explores embodied knowledge in her inquiry into “Leadership and fellowship in appreciative reciprocity”: “I am about connecting mind and body in understanding leadership.”

Michele Gennoe holds the intersections between business and spirituality with “Translating spiritual concepts into business leadership”: “I have been linking structured business thinking and intuitive leadership.” 


As well as the Programmed Strand, we have three other strands in our program, so you can tailor your conference experience to suit your own interests, and have opportunities to share your own insights.

The Open Space Strand, facilitated by Aladdin Jones, provides everyone with an opportunity to run their own workshop – any focus, any amount of time, planned and improvised, crowd sourcing participants from the conference community. What would you like to do at the conference? Let us know on our Facebook page.

Aladdin will also contribute with his renowned abilities with music.

The Being in Nature Strand, facilitated by Mark Spain, will immerse delegates in an experience based on John Milton’s philosophies.

The Gone Fishing Strand, facilitated by Riripeti Reedy, is your “time out” to heal with Māori leadership coaching.

    I am delighted to share with you the workshop leaders and the overall conference program.
