Asia Foundation Development Fellows at Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy

It was an honour to facilitate on of the modules for a leadership program recently at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, Singapore. The program was co-ordinated by Phillip Merry, CEO of Global Leadership Academy for the first ever cohort of Asia Foundation’s Development Fellows.













According to Asia Foundation,

“The 2014 Asia Foundation Development Fellows are talented individuals, under age 40, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership potential within their professional fields and within their larger community. They each have experiences and accomplishments related to The Asia Foundation’s fields of expertise – governance and law, economic development, women’s empowerment, environment, and regional cooperation.

The new initiative leverages the Foundation’s rich 60-year history, extensive 18-country network, and deep commitment to innovative leaders and communities across the region. Highlighting the catalytic role that individuals and local communities play in the development of their societies, Asia Foundation President David D. Arnold remarked: “We have been investing in innovative and entrepreneurial leaders for more than 60 years. The Asia Foundation Development Fellows program continues this tradition by helping to identify, nurture, and support the next generation of leaders for this dynamic and developing region.”

The Fellows (10 in number) were selected from a group of over 600 extraordinary candidates from over 20 Asian countries. I learnt so much from each of these inspiring leaders who are changemakers in their own countries.
