Context and objective

Leadership is not the preserve of the profession of arms; it invests all areas of society, it is necessary to all human endeavors, and a vital element of any organisation.

Leadersphere is an annual symposium that examines all aspects of leadership and its application. Leadersphere 2017 gathers leaders from various fields and provides them opportunities for sharing their leadership experience in their respective fields.

Once again this year, an impressive group of guest speakers will be gathered for this second edition of the symposium on leadership.
