Afaceri, mass-media, economie, politică, educaţie – Visionary Planning for Romania

Experți de prestigiu, atât din ţară cît şi din străinătate, vin la Cluj pentru a discuta cu noua generaţie de lideri, tineri sub 35 de ani din toate domeniile.

 

Cluj-Napoca, 17 octombrie 2012

 

În perioada 25-27 octombrie, conferinţa Visionary Planning for Romania aduce în prim plan experţi din domenii variate (de la economie la managementul conflictului, etică, programe anti-corupție, consultanță în afaceri, mass-media) într-o intalnire informală cu tinerii lideri sub 35 de ani, fie că aceștia activează în mediul de afaceri, instituții publice, ong-uri, Universitate, sau mass-media.

 

Într-un context în care analize globale arata ca indiferența liderilor scade loialitatea angajaţilor (vezi Studiul Towers Watson realizat pe 90.000 de angajați din 18 țări), conferinţa Visionary Planning for Romania îşi propune identificarea unor soluţii concrete. Invitații vor prezenta strategii implementate cu succes de către aceștia, tinerilor dispuși să își asume o viziune proprie, fara a se aștepta ca alte persoane –autorități sau superiori ierarhici –  să o facă în locul lor.

 

La conferință sunt așteptate persoane din mediul privat de afaceri, din rândul instituțiilor publice, din mediul academic (studenți, profesori, cercetători, angajați), delegați ai ONG-urilor, reprezentanți media. Conferința are loc pe parcursul a 2 zile de prelegeri si dezbateri, urmate de o a 3-a zi de ateliere tematice cu grupuri restrânse de participanți. Discuțiile se vor desfășura atât în română cât și în engleză.

 

Cum pot viitorii politicieni români să îşi crească credibilitatea concentrându-se pe câştigul comun şi nu pe un profit personal, atunci când sunt în conflict cu reprezentanți ai comunităților locale, ai diferitelor regiuni sau țări? Ce înseamnă „câștigul comun” în România; poate el fi obţinut? Voi încerca să vin cu exemple practice, care iau în considerare impactul culturii în rezolvarea unui conflict.” explică Adrian Borggreve, profesor de managementul conflictului, negociere și management intercultural la Universitatea Saxion. Adrian Borggrevea fost si trainer-ul membrilor parlamentului Lituanian în tehnici de negociere.

 

David Murray, specialist cu experiență de peste 30 de ani în consultanță în afaceri, Senior Advisor in cadrul Guvernului Britanic pentru Preşedintele IAG (International Advisory Group) pe probleme de petrol si gaze în 2005-2006, declară: "Corupţia contină să fie un flagel pentru societăţi din toată lumea şi ia forme variate. Consider că este important ca aceia dintre noi care în trecut am căutat soluții practice de reducere a corupției să încurajăm noua generaţie de lideri, să le oferim instrumente şi concepte viabile, care să îi ajute în bătălia pentru câştigarea integrităţii naţionale”. În ultimii ani de activitate in domeniul consultanței în afaceri, Daivd Murray s-a implicat mai ales în dezvoltarea standardului EITI (Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative), standard adresat industriilor de petrol, gaze și industriei miniere,menit să crească transparența contribuțiilor din partea industriilor extractive la economia statelor, în țările cu resurse naturale.

About the conference

All over Europe, and especially in Romania, the role of the young generation, although invoked in the public discourse, is mostly overlooked when it comes to the real debates. 

We strongly believe that youth can and, moreover, should play a decisive role in shaping their future, participating in the debates and finding creative solutions to the problems we are confronted with. Every time economists, politicians or academics are discussing, every time decisions are made in the public arena, it affects our life. 
 
Ironically, the young generation, in spite of being one of the most relevant stakeholder, appears to be the least interested in politics, society and public matters in general. The youth are becoming less informed, and less interested in pursuing “the common good” of the society. We believe that this trend can be reversed, and it’s our duty to promote responsible youth leadership.
