PR: YOUNG KIWI LEADERS TO FIND SOLUTIONS FOR PRIVATE, PUBLIC AND NOT-FOR-PROFIT COLLABORATION
COMMONWEALTH YOUTH NEW ZEALAND
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FRIDAY, 29 JANUARY 2016
Ahead of the 60th anniversary of The Duke of Edinburgh's Study Conference, now CSCLeaders, five young kiwis will travel to Scotland to undertake an intensive Commonwealth-focused leadership programme.
Mikade Barns Graham, Fatumata Bah, Anaseini Nuku, Madison Burgess-Smith, and Jennifer Fellows have been selected to attend this prestigious event and will spend one week learning finding solutions to the challenge "How do we create a step-change in the way private, public and not-for-profit sectors work together?"
33Sixty, delivered by leadership development experts Common Purpose, provides a framework in which participants can tackle challenges of fundamental importance to the Commonwealth.
"As an alumnus of 33Fifty, the predecessor to 33Sixty, I know that these five outstanding leaders will develop their own personal leadership styles as well as make amazing connections from around the world", said Aaron Hape, Commonwealth Youth New Zealand Executive Director.
"Participants of this programme have gone on to do amazing things and many have been successful in ensuring their local communities are benefiting from those skills they learnt in this programme"
Participants will explore the challenge through in-depth conversations with talented leaders from all sectors and behind-the-scenes visits to a range of incredible organisations to give them a cutting-edge insight into the challenge.
On the final day of the programme, participants will present their responses to the challenge to a panel of senior industry leaders.
