About the Trailer Launch

Expecting people in leadership positions to solve all the challenges we face in the world today is largely futile. That is why we firmly believe that expanding our leadership is critical in this new era - no matter who you are.

We invite you to the trailer launch of ‘Make Me A Leader’, a documentary-style movie that explores the importance of leadership in our personal and professional lives and what it takes to develop the human behind the leader.

This production has taken us around the world. We have interviewed many business leaders, academics, leadership researchers and scientists with the intention to show new frontier research and how we can use these findings to develop the leaders of the Imagination Age.

Join us on October 27th to hear the amazing insights from two of the protagonists, Drs. Harald Harung & Fred Travis, who are featured in this upcoming documentary!
