On October 17, 2009, Prof. Dr. El Namaki, Dean of VU, spoke at the 100th Drucker Centennial Event held in Jinan, China. The presentation was themed “New Trends in Strategic Thinking.”


Dr. El Namaki, President of the Drucker Society in the Gulf, was invited to Jinan because of his recent article “The Credit Crisis: Leaders who failed the Drucker Test.” It was published in the 100th Drucker Centennial Publication by the Drucker Society of Mannheim, Germany.


Years ago Dr. El Namaki met the late Peter F. Drucker at a Management Conference in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia.
