F. Robert Wheeler III, Dean of KSBL was the Keynote speaker at the inaugural session of the 2nd Lahore Management & HRD Summit, held on September 30 – October 1, 2010, at Pearl Continental Hotel, Lahore. The conference was organized by Nutshell Forum and Abacus Consulting in Strategic Partnership with Pakistan Society for Human Resource Management and was attended by industry leaders responsible for policy formulation, execution and operations of successful businesses. Mr. Wheeler talked about “Leadership Focus – People Development for Peak Performance”. He shared his experiences in Pakistan over the last year, noting how warm and hospitable the Pakistani people were to him. He also spoke about the importance of establishing a culture of continuous learning in companies. Companies must enable their employees to have access to current thinking as well as current research in order to compete in today’s global markets. While this is sometimes done in-house, more often, companies send their employees to open enrollment and custom education programmes. There are many such programmes available; it is important to ensure the quality of the institution providing the programmes.
