Simon Hookins will be participating at the Global Young Leaders Conference In Washington and New York at the end of July.

The Conference is a unique leadership development event that brings together outstanding young people from around the world to build critical leadership skills in a global context.

The students will have the opportunity to learn from and exchange ideas with some of the world’s top business leaders, policy officials, lobbyists, journalists, diplomats and academics in the challenging and dynamic environments in Washington D.C. and New York City.

The Conference gives high-achieving students aged 15-18 a greater understanding of their roles as global ambassadors while analyzing concepts surrounding communications, diplomacy, law, human rights, peace, security, economics and the role of the United Nations. Students return home from GYLC with a greater understanding of their roles and responsibilities as citizens and future leaders in an international community.

Simon, 17, from Ringwood in Hampshire said “I am absolutely excited by the event and will be looking forward to meeting new people from around the world with different cultural backgrounds and political systems. A highlight of the Conference will be attending the United Nations”.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Gordon Lockhart, Managing Partner said “We are delighted to be sponsoring Simon Hookins, grandson of our founder Barrie Hookins, to enable him to attend The Global Young Leaders Conference being held this summer in the USA. This experience will help Simon gain many new skills in becoming a leader and fits with our vision of developing people for the future”.
