LEADERSHIP Fiji (LF) in concluding its two-day retreat yesterday formed a vision for the country and where they hope to see Fiji in 20 years time.
The retreat which was held at Natadola’s Yatule Beach Resort, enabled the 34 participants to have dynamic discussions, with leadership, communities and development being key areas highlighted amidst a highly charged group of leaders eager to put their thoughts into action.
Executive Director Ms Shayne Fong said they are raising the bar this year internally with executive and administration processes and externally by increasing our intake, therefore developing and hopefully enhancing the qualities of more Fijian leaders this year.
Chairman of LF Mr William Parkinson advised the participants to set a vision for Fiji.
“You have set a vision for our country – the Fiji that you would like to see,” he said.
“You have committed to your vision. Don’t lose momentum this year, use every session to keep the energy and passion alive and to fuel the work you do for the betterment of your communities,” he added.
