Greta Meszoely, is the Director of the Center for Business Complexity & Global Leadership, Associate Professor at the Sawyer Business School faculty and a fellow in the Center for Innovation and Change Leadership, as well as a Faculty Fellow of Service and Outreach and member of the Environmental Studies Faculty in the College of Arts and Sciences at Suffolk. She as pursued her interest and research of complex problems and sustainable governance globally in business and society. She has been actively engaged in community and economic development in the US, women's rights and economic development in Zimbabwe, human rights in Egypt, democratic elections to support peace and development in Palestine, and water resources management in the Sahara. Through her study of complex problems and the characteristics of complex adaptive systems her research has led to her interest in developing fundamental management competencies necessary to support effective governance of sustainable systems.
"Good governance" became the catch phrase of the twenty-first century, as policy makers, economists and engineers, looked for a breakthrough to address the issue of sustainability. Failed strategies like nation building to provide social stability, river damming to secure fresh water, and urban zoning to promote economic activity, have shown that sustainability is a complex question beyond securing resources, or enacting the right policies.

I know organizing a conference is a lot of hard work, and as an attendee I just wanted to say thank you for your efforts.
... I thoroughly enjoyed BizCom 2010 - one of the most interesting and energizing
conferences I have attended in a long time. I hope you repeat the event next year.
