He added: It is in this context that the Strategic Leaders’ Summit is focusing on how to galvanize entrepreneurs, leaders, managers and government to understand the strategies for taking charge and turn things around during times of uncertainties. This will ensure that our next generation of leaders and entrepreneurs become resourceful and key players in building our nations.”
