The Academy forum brings together participants from private enterprise, Civil Society, foundations, leaders, practitioners from the government, academia among others from international development organizations working in areas of collaborative leadership.
The delegation was received by the KRCS Secretary General Dr. Abbas Gullet on 16 May 2017, starting off with a brief meeting and followed by a tour of the KRCS Emergency Medical Services (E-plus), KRCS Training School and the Boma International Hospitality College.
During a presentation that showcased a short video on the KRCS journey, Dr. Gullet gave an insight on the structure of the organization in terms of management, departments, membership and leadership. He also mentioned that KRCS has made great strides compared to the past years.
“The KRCS brand is more visible, appreciated by Kenyans and is greatly acknowledged in that it is ranked among top brands in Kenya. Every organization is as good as the people and if you invest in people, they will deliver good performance and productivity,” said Dr. Gullet.
The academy seeks to create awareness and build agreement through interaction and sharing of experiences on the importance of exercising leadership in bringing together diverse stakeholders to achieve results.
The conveyors from the Global Leadership Academy, thanked the KRCS for having them in the organization and most of them were inspired with the story, leadership and the humanitarian work they put into. “We are inspired with the leadership you instilled in Kenya Red Cross Society, and it has given us a different outlook and we will think beyond the norm.” Concluded Katharina Lobeck, a member of the Global Leadership Academy.
