An astonishing Global Video Conference

NWCCI and UHNI webinar with StateOur team of volunteers can honestly say “It took our breath away!”
For many years we have facilitated webinars, drawing on our global speakers bureau, for colleges and academies.
We typically prepare our speakers to deliver subject material that dovetails into each curricula and class syllabus. This time it was different.
With a focus on social entrepreneurship, this virtual conference provided alumni with opportunities to listen to speakers who have been instrumental in social and economic development throughout the world. They learned to leverage their skills to make positive impacts on their communities while pursuing ongoing professional development. They were able to connect with other CCI alumni from around the world.
For the first time, we worked with the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, in collaboration with the Northwest Community College Initiative (NWCCI) program. NWCCI organized the endeavor, while we had the pleasure to serve as their formal “Community Partner” by providing all the speakers. The title was “Thinking like an Entrepreneur!”
It gave us great joy to bring in speakers from many countries, including South Africa, Mongolia, Colombia and the United States.

Some of our speakers:

Roy Steiner Dr. Roy Steiner – Leadership: Leveraging Your Skills in Uncertain Economies, USA
Mohan Narula Dr. Mohan Narula – Guiding Principles for a Life of Service, Mongolia
iraj abedian Dr. Iraj Abedian – Making the Economy Work for the Poor: With Reference to the Role of Ethics, South Africa
Vivian BenetarMs. Vivian ARGUETA BERNAL (Key Note Speaker) – Ensuring Success: The power of meaningful relationships and bonds of friendship for your professional development, Colombia
YFactor Leyla T. HAIDARIAN – Social Entrepreneurship: Find your Y-Factor, South Africa

We will shortly upload all of their talks for your enjoyment.

We are still waiting to hear back total number of attendees around the world. The Video conference had several speakers at the same time, but in different classrooms so to speak. All in all it lasted for 4 hours. Ultimately thousands of listeners had an amazing day of study and learning.

We want to thank Christina Fusch to invite us to become part of this most exciting opportunity to connect students around the world to dialogue, ask questions and meet our various speakers in person.
