More than 50 participants from Government agencies, private sector, financial institutions, NGOs and media organisations attended the Leadership Fiji Alumni Summit at Holiday Inn Suva yesterday.

Keynote speaker MWH Global government and infrastructure president America and Asia Pacific Dr Marshall Davert spoke to participants about the importance of management and leadership.

He also advised participants to stay active in the alumni programme.

Chief guest was UN resident co-ordinator and UNDP representative Fiji Multi-Country Office Osnat Lubrani.

“There is a difference between management and leadership because in our day jobs most of us are managers and as managers it is important that we also provide leadership which is two separate sets of skills which appear to be in conflict,” Ms Lubrani said.

The summit was part of the alumni development programme with the theme ‘Leadership in the 21st Century’.

“Sometimes it’s important to pick up the phone and call someone who has the same challenge as you because it’s a lonely long twilight struggle as leadership is very lonely because you need to talk to someone who understands what you are going through as it would get you through the day.

“Lot of our times is spent with managerial activities and it is important that we separate that as what we do as leaders but remember the best managers are also the best leaders.”
