UNFIP a strategic partner in the Global Creative Leadership Summit initiatives

13 - 15 November 2006

From 13-15 November 2006, the Global Creative Leadership Summit, hosted by the LTB Foundation in New York City, brought together influential leaders in business, technology, government, science and the arts, to unleash insights that will have practical implications for problem-solving across disciplines. How can business and government leaders benefit from knowing more about how the brain works? How can those who see the world differently come together to break through today’s complex challenges? The Summit explored these and other vital questions through a fresh look at culture, creativity and a new understanding of the brain.

UNFIP is a strategic partner in this initiative and provided support and advice in developing the programme which included personalities such as Richard Axel, Peter Bergen, Eli Broad, Francesco Clemente, Chuck Close, Howard Gardner, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, HRH Prince Turki Al-Faisal, Arianna Huffington, Eric Kandel, Jim Kelly, Henry Kissinger, Richard Meier, Mike Oreskes, Alison Richard, Martin Sorrell, Jimmy Wales, and James Watson.
