shared research and insights on the
intersection of  technology, leadership and culture.

 
ADEA Leadership Institute Phase V is an exceptional encounter designed to invigorate leadership development, stretch thinking, push potential and rejuvenate the networks and relationships that are hallmarks of the ADEA Leadership Institute.

The 2017 Phase V program provided an exclusive, thought-provoking and interactive experience around themes of human-centric technology, connections between corporate and academic leadership, shared leadership experiences, and opportunities to shape the future of dental education and dentistry. 



I loved that some of the topics we discussed at Phase V were outside of my traditional comfort zone. This forced me to read, reflect and discuss new topics, a long lost luxury in today's busy life filled with routines.
