It’s March 2-KMD Forum…

Two weeks from tomorrow, Saturday, March 2, we will host KMD Forum at Hiyoshi campus of Keio University.  It is the third of its kind (I recall the one I was involved for the first time about 1.5 years ago at NicoFare, Roppongi, which was in many ways a big surprise for me), and it is also called KMD Real Project Showcase.

Our team, SPACE, will host the Global Debate from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon at Fujiwara Hall.  We are now working on details, but the main concept is to “experience the global leadership!!    “Global leadership” has been “in” for the past several years in Japan after repeated wave of initiative since the 1980s without much to show.

What we are trying to show is that global leadership is action and practice, and not the  set of skills or qualifications.  We will create the SPACE- both real and virtual- where people can FEEL what it is like to be a global leader.  Those who are interested in becoming global leader and those who are interested in developing global leaders, will be welcome to join us at Fujiwara Hall to taste the experience themselves.  Those who are not able to come to Hiyoshi can join us as we plan to live stream the event and arrange for you to join us.

In the afternoon, (time to be decided and informed later), we will have two workshops where we experiment with new format of brainstorming to general more ideas, get things moving and build networks of people who are interested in making it happen.

It will be an exciting day, so stay tuned!

Practice makes perfect. As I am often asked to present myself in American university in Cairo, I think practice is important. The reason we can not express ourselves with hesitation is just a matter whether we are used to it or not, isn’t it. Now I can understand what you often told us in Global agenda seminor 2012. I respect your hard work to offer young people chances to practice. Thank you.

Hi, Kobatake, thank you so much for your kind words. Practice is the key, as you say. Few people are born talented. Most of us are not, but can develop skills by practice. We will continue offering more opportunities.
