On this boiling hot day in the South West of England (and most of the UK by the looks of things), and with the smell of sun cream and barbecue food in the air, I am reminded of the far-flung places that the Organisation Studies group might have visited (or are about to visit) over these summer months. It is conference season here, so please email me with news and views from wherever you have been. What was experienced at EGOS? Did SCOS surprise and delight? Did GWO generate new thoughts and plans? If it is a photograph, a new call for papers, or just a short piece on how you have been inspired by your travels, we would like to here about it!
