Forty participants and 20 lecturers from Macedonia, Europe, the USA, Canada and China will be part of this year’s School for Young Leaders that will be held for the fifth time in Ohrid from 19 to 28 August at Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov’s initiative.
“Via the School for Young Leaders we invest in the knowledge of every young participant in the school yet our ultimate goal is developing team and leadership spirit. A team wins because of the concentration of knowledge, energy and motivation in it and because it is comprised of members of different backgrounds and talents. We want to invest in leaders separately yet it is just as important that we work on their team spirit,” says project coordinator Gordica Karanfilovska.
The lecturers in this year’s School for Young Leaders include former Serbian President Boris Tadic, Canadian Senator Don Meredith, the Vice President of the Chinese telecom giant ZTE Corporation, Xiao Ming, the founder of P World, Kosta Petrov, Imperial Prince and Archduke of Austria Karl von Habsburg, the Director for Account Service at Russell Public of the USA, Jason Miko, the former private secretary of Princess Diana, Patrick Jephson, former US President Ronald Regan’s assistant Mary Jo Jacobi, the director of Multimode Group, Tafsir Mohammed Awal, and law professional Muhamed Mesic from Bosnia and Herzegovina, known for the fact that he speaks over 70 languages.
