We always get excited when summer comes. Not just because it’s the perfect season for some R&R. It’s also the time when Nextivity plays host to international students participating in the Hansen Summer Institute on Leadership and International Cooperation program.
This is the third time we will be welcoming members of this global leadership program that brings together students from all over the world to collaborate, share their thoughts, and learn about entrepreneurship.
Selected candidates join in a three-week leadership training program in San Diego where they interact with OTHER international students from zones of conflict and social strife. During their travels they learn important skills, such as public speaking, negotiation, mediation, and social entrepreneurship.
Last year’s event was a stellar success, with students coming from as far afield as Pakistan, Liberia, Latvia, Syria, Nepal, Egypt, Tunisia, Iraq, and Israel, among other countries. The undergraduate and graduate students were enthusiastic participants to say the least. Members of the Nextivity team were also thrilled to talk about the innovation that goes into developing Cel-Fi – as well as share some top notch ice cream treats.
This video from last year’s event says it all.
