A Leadership Learning Journey to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
An exploration of self renewal and into the renewal of a country
Our learning journey to Brazil will provide insights into one of the world's most prominent economies. Brazil's economy will continue to grow significantly in 2011 and it has been forecast that by 2025 it will become the world's fifth largest, overtaking Britain and France, while Sao Paulo will rank higher than Paris and Shanghai as the world's sixth wealthiest city.
Brazil has a diverse and vibrant mix of culture and heritage, and its people are taking their place on the world stage through economic growth, business, film, visual art, dance, food, sport and much more.
Please join us on the journey to discover first hand the background to this mystery of renewal and vibrancy. While travelling the impressive Brazilian landscapes, we will also explore and deepen our own potential for vibrancy. This will catalyse our renewal as managers and leaders, enhancing our capacity to bring vibrancy to our own lives and the businesses that we are leading.
