In the last year the YLP has developed a reputation as an innovative approach to leadership development given its unique methodology of linking executive learning with social entrepreneurship and community needs.
The November 2008 programme will begin with an academic MBA-style component in Hong Kong and will be followed by an on-site project based experience in northern India. As part of the on-site project, participants will work to create a business plan to attract investment for Drishtee, an Indian enterprise that is dedicated to creating a sustainable, scalable platform of entrepreneurship for the development of India’s rural economy.
Participants will include about 25 executives from multi-national companies, SMEs, civil society groups and universities. Through the programme, these individuals will gain; an appreciation of Asian globalisation challenges across sectors; hands-on experience to understand future customers and future markets and valuable cross-cultural leadership and partnering skills. Each participant will be evaluated on their performance.
Past participants have included individuals from global companies such as; Standard Chartered, JP Morgan, HP, UBS, Shell, MTRC, CLSA, Cathay Pacific, Beijing Li-Ning Sports, Gammon Construction, Shui On, Credit Suisse, Petronas, V.S. Dempo, e2e – Velankani Group, and the Cheung Kong Group among others.
I would appreciate it if you could pass on the details about this programme to those in your network who may be interested in participating. As places in the programme are limited, we would appreciate an indication of early interest from them by Wednesday, September 17th.
