According to the President of GOTNI, Mr. Linus Okorie: ’’There is no other time than now to invest in the leadership capital skills of Nigerians, if we must make progress as a nation’’.
It is in line with this thinking that GOTNI has decided to host the Emerging Leaders Conference.
‘’LEADERSHIP FOR TRANSFORMATION’’:
From Potential to performance is the theme for the emerging leaders’ conference, which is being organised by Guardians of the Nation International GOTNI, in conjunction with Punch News Papers and other partners.
The conference, which is to hold on the 14th and 15th June 2013, at the Congress Hall of the Transcorp Hilton Abuja, will host over 1000 emerging young leaders who are making a difference in their communities, establishments, organization and states.
The gathering of these young leaders is aimed at setting an agenda for our nation and charting a new course for value orientation and attitudinal change in governance. As a non-profit Youth Leadership Capital Development Organisation, GOTNI has a passion to nurture various categories of young people less than forty years of age, into transformational leaders who will impact positively the various sectors of our society and economy.
The two day conference promises to inspire the emerging leaders through presentations and trainings by carefully selected leaders who have distinguished themselves in various areas of life endeavours. Leading the pack of resource persons will be Professor John Adair, the Chairman of The United Nations Leadership Systems and the First Professor of Leadership in the world.
Breakout Sessions will include:
- A minister’s round table with federal Ministers;
- A security roundtable with national security chiefs;
- An emerging leaders roundtable with young CEOs;
