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:  Dallas, Texas  -  November 10-15, 2019

Session 2:  Atlanta, Georgia  -  February 16-20, 2020

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