“I was flattered to get the unique opportunity to participate at the first edition of the GCLP. In my professional path, I have participated in numerous seminars, fairs and training programmes, but none of the previous events has given me such a holistic understanding of the role of cultural leadership globally. The chats with extraordinary individuals from diverse backgrounds enriched that experience.”
In order to introduce themselves and their organisations, the participants prepared a poster presenting 4 elements – Me, My organisation, My Project and My Dream.
