in memory of Gerard Fairtlough (dead on 15 December 2007)

Bankside House, 24 Summer Street, London SE1 9JA
Aims and organisation of symposium
We aim to facilitate an annual symposium, planned by a steering committee selected specifically for each event and financed by a trust fund that is now being set up.  We expect the style and content of the symposium to change over time.  In line with Gerard's being a reflective practitioner, the broad theme of the symposium is to be organisational theory in practice.  We intend each event to address emerging themes in organisational thinking and practice: to throw light on how organisations work and on how they can learn to function in a more responsible, ethical and sustainable way as well as being efficient, financially sound and satisfying to interact with.
