“A group of people who have shown an extraordinary contribution to society and who have served their country and their communities in meaningful ways.”
The Council is composed of ex-Presidents of countries (Romania, Panama, Ecuador, Estonia, Ireland, Mauritius, Italy…), Ministers, Presidents, entrepreneurs, senior Executives of multinationals, Ambassadors, European Commissioners, musicians, secretaries of state or including Former General Director of the World Trade Organisation, His Excellency Dr Supachai Panitchpakdi.
“For me; it was a unique, unforgettable experience. Know the vision of the World of these people have is something invaluable, both professionally and personally. Behaving breakfast at the same table with the former President of Serbia, the adviser to Croatian prime minister, a Scottish lord, an ex-Minister of Morocco and former President of the Australian Senate and to speak of “one on one” with them about the world, is something that I will never forget.
Participate in a closed meeting, and hear the wise reflections of His Excellency Dr Supachai Panitchpakdi, Director of the UNCTAD, about the Transpacific Trade Agreement and its influence in China and South-east Asia, or listen to the Personal Adviser to the President of Nigeria, calling for action and not only for reflection to the President of the General Conference of UNESCO, has definitely enriched me as a person.” Pedro Nonell.
