May I first congratulate you and your staff for the excellent project of setting up a School for young leaders in your country. Now in its 3rd year , the project clearly succeeds in bringing bright young people together from different background and through its networking aspect and Alumni association I have to admit that the future and sustainability of your objective is secured! It was therefore my pleasure and sincere honor to be able to participate as a lecturer and transmit my personal passion for “Lobbying in Brussels “ – I certainly hope to remain involved and express my support for your country.

I have been very impressed by the Government creating a leadership school – all governments should do this! The benefits to the country will be profound – through long term. The school exposes young leaders to a vast range of new ideas, equipping them not just for now, but the future. It provokes them to be open to thinking differently, and changing their approach.
