In response to the challenges of leadership bedeviling Nigeria and the obvious decline in value-based leadership, Royal Foundation International is set to host her National Leadership Summit (NLS), a program packaged to be a platform to equip students with Leadership skills, a requisite skill for success in Private and Public Sector in their adult lives and also as students in their respective schools.
According to the convener, Femi Royal Aliu, he noted that, “Royal Foundation International is a youth-led organization that utilizes amazing innovation and cutting edge technologies to package fellowship programs, internships, summits, bootcamps for young people to promote individual effectiveness, wealth creation and leadership skills”.
The Maiden Edition of her National Leadership Summit was hosted in November 2016 and she featured over 10 schools including Dalos College, Ambassadors College, ECOWAS College, and Iganmode Grammer School (the defending champion that produced the debater of the year and got our award for this) and many others space will fail me to mention.
NLS 2017 will bring together about 20 schools to a single venue as a gathering of eagles and will also be a platform to learn about exceptional and value-based leadership and how they can model it, alongside, students from different schools will also compete for the debater of the year award on the topic, “To work for someone else or build one’s business; which is better?”
