Profile Information

What brings you to Follett?
Readings about management basics. My pHD was about what is called in France "concertation" which has no english translation; one possible equivalent could be "participative decision-making". I have heard few things about Follett's concept of integration. I decided to go further . Since I began to read Follett's writtings, my whole vision of participative decision-making has been completely renewed.

Sebastian, the link you provided does not work for me. Matthew Shapiro sent me the attached document. Is that what you were trying to send me with the link? THANK YOU! Lecia

Sebastien, I just tried to email you my 10 page submission using the email on the submission guidelines and it won't go through. I apologize for any inconvenience. I will attach here and hopefully it will work!


Sebastien, good day! I humbly submit 10 pages of my script. This performance was originally written for an audience that does not know Follett but I believe it is still relevant and will evoke learning and inspiration in the conference attendees. Please let me know if there is anything else you need. Thank you so much for the opportunity to submit this.

Humbly and gratefully, Lecia

Good morning Sebastien! (Or good evening for you!) I was curious whether there is any word on who has been selected to present in October. Thank you! Lecia
