The First Management Conference

Back by popular demand:

"The first management conference we know of was called in 1882 by the German Post Office. The topic - and only chief executive officers were invited - was how not to be afraid of the telephone. Nobody showed up. The invitees were insulted. The idea that they should use telephones was unthinkable. The telephone was for underlings."

- Peter F. Drucker
