The 45th ARTDO International World Conference on Leadership and Talent Development is scheduled to be held from November 11th- 13th, 2018 at the Grand Hotel in Taipei, Taiwan. The theme of the conference is Cross-Boundary Talents Training and Development. We would like to encourage the participants, including public, private and nonprofit sectors,to share their experiences in developing talents for different fields.

Cross-boundary integration is the fundamental spirit of Taiwanese culture. Since early, Taiwan has been the place where East Asian businesses, trades, and talents converge. Aside from acting as the inheritor of traditional Chinese culture,Taiwan has also integrated the culture of the Indigenous Peoples in Taiwan, the Southern Min speakers, and the Hakkas,and even cultures of neighboring countries such as Japan and Southeast Asian countries. Cross-cultural exchange and integration have formed the unique Taiwanese culture we see at present and it is also embedded in the daily life of theTaiwanese people.

Using this Taiwanese spirit as the starting point, the conference will explore this year’s conference theme: Cross-Boundary Talents Training and Development. Experts, scholars, and professionals of different fields and backgrounds will be exchanging views through speeches and forums. We hope that new ideas and viewpoints can be sparked through the collision of thoughts on the following topics, which include and are not limited to facilitating cross-boundary learning,developing cross-boundary talents, and sustaining a cross-boundary working environment. We hope that after the exchange and discussion on these topics, a new direction in the future will be revealed.

We also anticipate participants to introduce new topics regarding talent training and developing. During the three-day conference, we will provide a wonderful platform for participants to conduct cross-boundary discussion and learning and also offer the opportunity for professionals of different fields to exchange thoughts. Through discussion conducted by experts of different working environments, these professionals can probe into innovative work structures and values, and also the importance and prospects of cross-boundary integration. We believe that this conference will provide you with the opportunity to learn, to connect, to create, and perform cross-boundary integrating and exchanging which will further enhance the driving force of transforming your life, work environment, and organization.
