Youths and adults were engaged in two days of learning how to equip themselves to become better leaders in the world. This initiative is being carried out by the Global Leadership Network, through their Global Leadership Summit held in Belize. The summit saw participation from Businesses, Educational, Organizational & NGO’s, Government, Church, Family, and personal leaders. This is the second time the summit is being held and saw participation numbers double as compared to last year. Love News spoke to Kerm Thimbrel, Chairman of Global Leadership Network, who told us what they aim to achieve from the summit.
Kerm Thimbrel, Chairman of Global Leadership Network: “One of the main things is that we empower individuals with the concepts to be able to create the right culture in the working environment where everybody wins. Today we’re going to be talking about ideal teams, how do you create ideal teams. We’re going to be talking about things that leaders don’t do, that’s critical and I’ve seen this in my own life because as a leader you have to be able to create the culture, you have to see more, you have to see before. People won’t just follow anybody you have to be able to add value to people’s lives and these are just some of the concepts that we released through these summits. All we need to see them do apply the content that has been shared. The content is just so amazing I am one of the persons that is most privileged to have gone through so much of the content and it really empowers your life, it gives you tools to navigate, you don’t have to be wondering ‘what do I do when these situations arise.’ but we give you the tools to be able to know how to lead in those critical moments. As a matter of fact the session that is on right now is ‘How do you handle crisis in the midst of rapid changing in times.’ It’s critical, it’s a critical topic, it’s so relevant to our culture and we’re going to move forward we have to be empowered and exposed to this type of content and these types of world class mentors who will be able to take us from where we are and create a grander us out of who we are because we believe that everybody wants to be better but it takes the right people and that’s why I said earlier we use world class experts and highly accomplished individuals who can give us a road map to navigate to get to the place where we really need to get to in life.”
The summit was began yesterday at the Bliss Centre for the Performing Arts and will continue today.
