SIBF Leadership Academy

SIBF Leadership Academy

Dallas, Texas (map)

The individual curriculum for both sessions of the SIBF Leadership Academy has been thoughtfully developed to offer a broad spectrum of opportunities to investigate innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship. World-class business coaches and global business executives with proven expertise serve as session instructors for the plenary sessions. In addition, a select group of experienced international business professionals serve as facilitators; two or three facilitators manage participant Learning Groups and lead the conversations that deepen and extend learning and personal growth. The underlying credo for the Academy is that everyone is a teacher; each participant is expected to share personal knowledge and experiences as they assimilate each session’s lessons.
 

Session 1:  Atlanta, Georgia  -  May 14-19, 2018

Session 2:  
Dallas, Texas  -  August 26-30, 2018

Both sessions are required and participants will remain in contact to work on individual business projects between sessions 1 and 2.

SIBF glides into Austin for its 38th Annual Summit. Honky-tonks, timely topics, and big Texas welcomes await. What better place to take center stage than the live music capital of the world!

Please register by May 25 for early bird savings!

IMPORTANT HOTEL BLOCK INFORMATION: 
We expect our group room block at the Four Seasons Austin to sell out quickly due to the popularity of the fall travel period in Austin as well other scheduled conventions and the Austin City Limits music festival.  

All Austin downtown hotels, as well as local Airbnbs, are expected to sell out. Please reserve your room today.

South East Asia Leadership Academy

South East Asia Leadership Academy

TBD (map)

The SEALA Academy is a 10-day immersion in a demanding environment. It is a leadership boot camp whose watchwords are purpose, authenticity, character, values. You will need all your skill to master the high refinements of leadership arts. But you will need all your courage to go deep in exploring your default reaction to authority – how to manage the stress of handling systems – your true ability to work with power – before, as a leader, you can fulfill your potential and promise.

SEALA is not all lectures and general theory. Plenary learning sessions alternate with breakout groups facilitated by experienced businesspeople, seasoned practitioners from around the world. Every idea is up for discussion; every lesson is tested against experience to prove its worth. SEALA focuses on the real-life applications of leadership skills especially seen against the developing needs of South East Asia today.

Our aim is not 10 days of “chalk-and-talk” and a handsome certificate at the end of the office wall. Our aim is a transformation of business and society in South East Asia.

Fellows' International Conference South Africa

Fellows' International Conference South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa (map)

South Africa is a country rich in natural resources. It boasts some of the planet’s most extraordinary scenery and wildlife. South Africans are known for their hospitality, and living standards are, for some, much higher than those elsewhere in Africa. At the same time, political events are moving rapidly, and major economic and social problems pose complex challenges.

Our itinerary allows you to see South Africa through a variety of lenses: historic, economic, cultural and scenic. Our aim, as always, is a unique SIBF blend of high-level content, person-to-person contact with local business and community leaders, unparalleled cultural experiences—and a few surprises.
