PRME Regional Chapter UK and Ireland 7th Annual Conference

Conference Update – Postponed 

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the PRME UK & Ireland Chapter and the University of Lincoln have made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 UKI Chapter Annual Conference until July 2021, and instead hold a one day Chapter gathering online on Wednesday July 8th (details to follow).

This decision was not taken lightly but will come as no surprise to you, given the escalating seriousness of the situation in the UK, government guidance on social distancing and travel restrictions, and our obligation to protect the welfare of our academic community.

If you have questions linked to the conference that are not addressed here, please get in touch by emailing Chapter Chair, Alec Wersun, on

Keep safe!

Dr. Alec Wersun – PRME UK & Ireland Chapter Chair

Dr. Claire May & Prof. Ted Fuller – PRME Conference 2020 Co-Chairs

Dr. Craig March – Director, Lincoln International Business School

2020 Theme: ‘Re-Thinking Responsibility’

The 7th Annual Conference of the UK and Ireland PRME Regional Chapter will be hosted by Lincoln International Business School.

The conference theme (‘Re-thinking Responsibility’) is an acknowledgement of PRME’s ongoing key role in the shaping of responsible management education and to inspire each member to continuously re-think their purpose and practice. For example, how do we respond to the imperatives of the global movement in declarations of a ‘Climate Emergency’?

Keynote speakers, panels and workshops will include leading figures from industry and wider society with a unique opportunity to see practical partnership working on a local level.
