Corporate & Academic Insights to Become an Inspiring Leader (Hong Kong)

25 April 2018 @ 9:00 am - 26 April 2018 @ 5:00 pm

“During my many years in Leadership Development, I have not engaged in a more helpful or inspiring workshop! Gerry meets all criteria for excellence!” ~ Prof. Steven J. Dekrey, Associate Dean, Hong Kong U. of Science & Technology, Singapore, 2017

“Simple yet very POWERFUL concepts of Leadership. One of the few “life-changing” training I have had in my career.” ~ Nasri Mohamed, VP of Customer Experience, Telekom Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, 2017

WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND?                                                               

Clearly, the testimonials above provide you with compelling endorsements to participate in this Leadership training. In addition, whether you are thinking of attending yourself – or if you considering this workshop for colleagues or students – following are more reasons to attend:

In late 2017, LinkedIn surveyed over 2,000 Executives asking what skills are most needed for the year 2018 and Leadership Skills were ranked #1. (p.s. One of our other MGT OPEN training specialties – namely Communications – was ranked #2).

This Leadership programme has been highly-acclaimed by our clients across Europe, in The Middle East and S.E. Asia and it will equip you with a tool box of strategies that you can immediately begin to implement. The workshop will make you intimately familiar with the essential Leadership Strategies such as empathasing, envisioning, enabling and empowering. Moreover, you will leave the training with a comprehensive list of websites, case studies and other resources that you can use to continue improving your leadership skills long after the workshop has successfully finished.

Please note that to promote dialogue and to better manage activities, the group size will be limited to the first 15 people to register.  


We have offered our training in Jakarta, Singapore, KL, Beijing, Bangkok and now look forward to our first workshop in Hong Kong. As this is our first time to the “Pearl of the Orient”, we are offering the workshop at a GREAT VALUE fee!


The landscape for business in Hong Kong and globally – and as a result also your career options – is dramatically changing: employees expect more from you; clients have more alternatives; and your corporate and career reach transcends diverse cultures and borders. To be an effective leader today you need to be able to respond to these challenges with emotional intelligence, expertise and leadership skills that are proven to work!

In two intensive but inspiring days, you will learn contemporary Corporate and Academic Leadership Models that will provide you with a “transformational learning experience”. The result is that you will become a more effective leader with broader horizons who can solve complex problems, create positive change, accomplish your targets and, most importantly, accelerate and achieve your career success.
