6th AUAP-PIM Global Leadership Program 2019

"We had the honour of representing IoBM and Pakistan at the 6th Annual Global Leadership Programme organised by the Panyapiwat Institute of Management and the Association of Universities of Asia and the Pacific in Thailand.

Amidst 32 other participants from 10 different countries in this programme, we found an entirely new perspective of the world.

A constant message that global peace, prosperity, tolerance and friendship is absolutely attainable.

The Global Leadership Programme taught us how to thrive in this disruptive world as global leaders through focusing on creativity, profession and humanity.

Alongside invaluable sessions on leadership; we were introduced to Thai traditional dance, Thai Cooking and several tourism expeditions.

The programme was managed and executed to perfection while the Thai hospitality we received was beyond compare.

This trip was an experience of a lifetime and a celebration of diversity which enabled us to make lifelong friends and memories that shall never be forgotten.

We are extremely grateful to IoBM for giving us the opportunity that very few people in this world receive."
