"I was humbled to be a part of this inaugural [Emerging Global Leader Institute]. The event covered a wide range of topics in a sufficient depth and breadth to help me crystallize my personal vision as a global leader. The speakers were excellent and provided not only inspiration for my dream but aspiration to continue to aim high with my visions. I can honestly state, this was a life changing experience for me, thank you STTI!"
