The PhD Student conference is an annual event at which PhD candidates are given the opportunity to showcase their Research projects to their peers and academics from across the School. As well as participating in subject specific group meetings and a poster session, students are also able to get feedback and advice on their work in a constructive, friendly and supportive environment.
This year’s conference saw 52 students participate, as well as 50 academics from Royal Holloway’s School of Management and the wider academic community. The poster session was well attended, featuring work from 17 First Year students. Suman Saha’s poster about ‘Exploring the relevance and application of deliberative democracy in indigenous Bangladeshi firms’ and Steffen Kromer’ poster about ‘Introduction to Emotional intelligence – Korean Nunchi as a management style’ both won the ‘Outstanding Poster’ award, as voted for by all conference attendees. Delegates also enjoyed two plenary sessions which covered topics on ‘How to get your paper published (or not)’ and ‘Developing your Presentation Skills’
Conference organiser Joanne Barrs said: We thank all of the students and academics for their enthusiasm and involvement which helped make this year’s Conference such a success.
As well as the PhD Student conference, there is a plethora of activity aimed at promoting the work of the research community here at the School of Management. Forthcoming research seminars include:
