ToTAL is inviting leaders from Japan and the world in a series of lectures titled "Global Leadership Cafe" to discuss their unique perspectives on leadership with mainly Tokyo Tech students online and/or live on campus. As the second event of the series, we are inviting Dr. Sergiy Korsunsky, the current Ambassador of Ukraine to Japan, to hold an online lecture and Q&A session on the topic "Leadership in World Politics".
Introductory comment on the lecture by Dr. Sergiy Korsunsky:
It is going to be not a usual lecture, but sooner a discussion to provoke thoughts and questions. What is leadership in politics? Any differences/similarities with leadership in business? Is leadership always a good thing? How to recognize and how to become a true leader?
Please take this great opportunity to hear Ambassador Korsunsky's thoughts on leadership and communicate directly with him! This event is open to the general public.
Friday, September 10, 2021, 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. (JST)
