Accounting Assistant Intern with Cayman National Kacey Solomon, attended this year’s Global Young Leaders Summit.
Kacey, a recent graduate of John Gray High School was nominated and was given financial support by Cayman National to attend the summit in Australia, said a company release.
The Global Young Leaders Summit is a leadership development programme available to alumni of the Global Young Leaders Summit.
As honoured guests in Australia, scholars were able to sharpen their leadership skills of communication, networking and persuasion while preparing for success in a world influenced by rapidly changing cultural, political and economic forces, the advisory added. They also learned to evaluate critical information, form and advocate positions and make decisions through networking and hands-on experiences.
According to Kacey, the conference was an unforgettable and up-building experience.
The overall focus was to foster cross-cultural communication, which is thought to play a vital role in everyday life.
‘Networking and lobbying were also two main topics we worked on mainly among our fellow GYLS delegates,’ she said. ‘I’ve gained a greater knowledge of cross-cultural adaptation, various leadership skills, friends and a rare opportunity to travel across the globe. I would like to thank the Cayman National for the support and encouragement they have provided in making it possible for me to attend this summit,’ she said.
‘We were extremely pleased to make this experience a reality for Kacey,’ said Claudia Welds at Cayman National. ‘Cayman National is aware that the more we actively participate and partner with our young people, the better we serve them. Through our partnership with our youth we are increasing our public value to the entire community.’
