Young Leaders Workshop in Kenya, Ngong Hills 18th - 25th August 2012
With this theme Global Fellowship invites young leaders to an international training course with the focus on leadership development.
During the last 20 - 30 years we have heard how difficult it is for people to find their own identity. It is not only on a personal level, but the difficulties impacts onto all structures and organisations in our societies. Some of our organisations use a motto: Sure and steadfast. In many societies we have lost common values, and it seems that the Motto was easier to say at the beginning of last century than today.
The whole course will focus on identity - reflecting on the statement that we as individuals have lost our identity. We shall also look at some reasons for the loss, and see what kind of impact it can have for our organisations. Which organisation-identity should be our brand in society? What can my organisation bring to the society which is not already covered by other organisations? Where can we set our fingerprints? What can you do as a young leader - how are you able to extend your passion, your commitment in your own society? How can you address your leadership in your organization to broader groups - do you have any tools for such an approach?
These are just some of the questions we will deal with on the course.
And since young leaders from the whole world will attend the course you will encounter many new ideas, be motivated and inspired to find some answers to the above questions.
This is a fantastic chance to learn about other cultures, to get a better understanding of our societies, and to meet new friends across the world.
Global Fellowship wants to provide a learning "lab" for young leaders with cross-cultural activities. Each participant will bring something, but get more, and therefore this workshop is also a leadership development opportunity for all participants.
The door is open for your fingerprint.
Venue: The course will take place in Kenya, close to the capital Nairobi on a hillside in Ngong Hills. The "watakatifu wote centre" is located here. It means the place of the sacred. The conference Centre belongs to the Presbyterian Church and it is located with a beautiful view over the valley.
Accommodation : Presbyterian Conference Centre. The rooms have 2 beds, shower and toilet facilities to each room. A beautiful garden with an outdoor stage. Kenya is in the tropical climate-zone, but due to the latitude of the venue it can be chilly in the nights; but for the same reason there is no malaria.
Price: $150 US per participant. Each participant has to arrange their own passport, visa (if needed), insurance and medical vaccinations etc. Visa can be issued in the airport in Kenya by paying $50 US. Each participant has to arrange their own transport to and from Nairobi airport. Assistance may be available from GF on request.
The registration fee of $150US must be paid by yourself or your organisation when the course starts or your organisation can transfer the money to GF's bank account. The fee covers everything during the course: accommodation, food, excursions etc.

Extension of the stay
Kenya has many tourist attractions, white beaches and game parks. If you want to extend your stay we can help you with ideas and contacts to BB companies, but such arrangements will be on your own responsibility.
