On sabbatical!

Posted: July 3, 2019 in Uncategorized

It has been a while since I last blogged…. time does fly…  in fact, I managed to get tenured and promoted since my last entry (and two beautiful grandsons)….

BUT I now have a firm resolution to blog about my 1st sabbatical. As much to keep me on track with my (overly ambitious no doubt) sabbatical plan as to share my thoughts, research, pics of field trips etc.  and get comments and feedback.

So far: presenting a paper at Vaasa International Business Conference, then visiting professorship at Aalto University School of Business, working with Mika Westerlund from my school and Risto Rajala from Aalto University, in Finland.  Quite looking forward to it! Our research will most likely involve topic modelling, more on that later.

Then off to Opense, Denmark, to the University of Southern Denmark to visit and lecture in Søren Jensen’s class, followed by a side trip to beautiful Copenhagen.

I am initiating a new research stream at the nexus of international experiential learning and social entrepreneurship in Africa – Tanzania and will be presenting a paper (once formally accepted) at the Biennial Conference of the Africa Academy of Management in January 2020, in Lagos, Nigeria.

Aside from these planned activities, some research grants, a bunch of papers to write/finalize and… enjoy life too!

There… it’s in writing and I must now deliver 🙂

Follow me on this exciting year!
