II. Leadership Academy | October 3-5, 2019

2nd Leadership Academy will be held at Ulu Resort Hotel, Mersin/Turkey on 3-5 October 2019 by the cooperation of Silifke Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mersin UniversityTOBB University of Economics and Technology, Toros University, 15 November Cyprus University, Mersin Chamber of Shipping, Iskenderun Chamber of Commerce and Industry and TOBB Mersin Young Entrepreneurs Council.

Leadership has become a key concept in the context of today's management strategies. Leaders' ability to influence and guide society directly affects enterprises from a socio-cultural perspective and paves the way for institutionalization. Since leadership is not an innate talent, it is thought that, as a necessity of organized life, the leadership and personal development trainings of room and stock managers / councilors and staff will create positive outcomes for all social stakeholders.

Leadership Academy is a feast of information that brings together the representatives of the business world and the academicians involved in the transfer of theoretical knowledge, the exchange of knowledge and experience and interaction, and is one of the most important University-Industry Cooperation steps taken in this direction.

In 2018, I. Leadership Academy, which was held with the presence of KKTC Prime Minister Mr. Tufan ERHÜRMAN and TOBB President Mr. M. Rifat HİSARCIKLIOĞLU, was completed with the participation of 50 different institutions / organizations, 27 Chambers, 310 participants, 15 Conferences and Seminars, 20 Invited Speakers and 11 academic presentations. Within the scope of the event, cooperation protocols were signed between Chambers and Commodity Exchanges, various commercial agreements and cooperations were opened between business people and academic knowledge and business experience were brought together. The Workshop Result Declaration was delivered to all Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of TOBB.

On October 3-5, 2019, we will organize a broader participation and more comprehensive training / interaction programs. At the II. International Leadership Academy; it is aimed to contribute to human and social capital of all participants for 3 days through various educational activities / seminars / academic sessions / panels / B2B negotiations and workshops focusing on the inspiring power of leadership and the ability to influence people.

In addition, it is foreseen that the effectiveness will have a positive effect in terms of the shares of the Accreditation Officers in the Chambers and Commodity Exchanges affiliated with TOBB.
