Inspired by her career as a concert violinist and music workshop leader, Bibi Pelić created Music & Leadership, the cornerstone of ConductVision, in 2008 as an educational programme designed to provide business students, current and future leaders a new platform for discussion on key business issues.
Using music as a metaphor the new programme was created to offer unique insights into how leadership, organizational structures and processes run in the music world. The core belief behind this project was that that education and professional development are the most critical factors in helping individuals change their lives for the better.
As a strong believer in education and knowledge, Bibi understood the importance of interdisciplinary values, an idea first pointed out by Leonard Bernstein, famous conductor and composer, quoting ‘that the best way to 'know' a thing is in the context of another discipline’. Embracing the philosophy of learning leadership, communication, personal development and other important skills in the context of another discipline, Music & Leadership was created as a new dimension in leadership and management education.
