“I have been putting the lessons I learned at the Strategic Management for Leaders of Non-Governmental Organizations program into practice. I have started several initiatives at my university connected to governance, strategic planning, and improving functioning of structural divisions. A great outcome of the program for me was that it increased my self-confidence – I am sure that these initiatives are needed and that I can succeed.”
-Kakhaber Gordadze, Chairman, Gori Regional Education Fund, Georgia
