Brainstorming in Bellagio to Make the 1 Million Managers for Africa Goal a Reality

Posted By Page Schindler Buchanan, Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Nora BrownI had the pleasure of spending last week at the Rockefeller Foundation's Center in Bellagio, Italy where I joined a wonderful group of development experts, business people, philanthropists and academics to work towards catalyzing management development in Africa.

The view from the Bellagio Conference RoomThe Rockefeller Foundations makes their beautiful villa and estate available for conferences and small meetings to promote innovation and identify impact-oriented solutions to critical global problems and we were lucky enough to have been selected as a recipient of their generosity.(Check out the view from the conference room!)

Throughout the week, I was energized and enthused at the commitment and creativity of the group in thinking about how we can work towards one million effective managers in Africa. I was particularly pleased that one of GBSN's board members, Carol Realini, joined the group and brought her expertise and experience in technology and mobile solutions to the challenge at hand. Carol wrote a fantastic blog on the week and I urge you to check it out.
