Dr Kedrayate argued for humanity in leadership, propagating that modern day leaders need to empathise with their subordinates.

Youth leaders from as far as Labasa made their way to the forum which had the theme ‘Leadership Styles: What Works Today?’ and did not go away disappointed as the activities and speakers lined up kept the participants occupied throughout the day.

The impressive line-up of speakers included Vision Motors Chief Executive Officer Mr Ajay Lal, Academic and Fiji Women Graduates President Ms Charlotte Taylor, Publisher Ms Naziah Ali and President of Aiesec Fiji, Ms Ginny Ho.

The youth leaders present at the Forum were nominated by the Fiji National University, University of Fiji, Sangam School of Nursing, Fulton A University College, USP Labasa and  Lautoka Campuses, the three faculties from USP and the Disability Resource Centre of USP.

The forum also saw the establishment of a volunteer team made up of FALE students calling themselves the FALE Army of Volunteers.

The annual event has now become a feature of the FALE calendar.
