Top Stories: Usher To Host Third Annual World Leadership Conference

Usher's New Look Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Usher Raymond IV, will host the third annual World Leadership Conference in Atlanta, Georgia at Emory University from June 19-22, 2012. The 2012 World Leadership Conference is a three-day initiative that brings together celebrities, influencers, newsmakers and hundreds of accomplished youth from around the world including the U.K., Hong Kong, Kenya and South Africa, with the goal of educating and empowering young people in New Look’s four pillars: talent, education, career and service. Beginning Wednesday, June 20, 2012, a hand-selected group of the brightest and best New Look youth leaders will participate in New Look’s intensive training program to learn the skills needed to become agents of change in their community. The training will consist of seminars and discussions focusing on public speaking, presentation skills, using your talents to make a difference, and embracing your individuality to build your brand. These New Look youth leaders will use Wednesday’s training as a vehicle to empower, mentor and certify approximately 1,200 Atlanta-based middle school students as leaders on Thursday. On Friday, June 22, 2012, a select group of New Look youth leaders will take over Atlanta for the day, shadowing top corporate CEO’s, including Mayor Kasim Reed, giving them a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop leadership and problem-solving skills in a real world setting. The Conference will conclude with a special concert, “Usher & Friends Unplugged,” which will feature surprise musical guests. “New Look is about sending the next generation out into the world with the knowledge, experience, and empowerment they need to succeed,” said Usher Raymond IV. “These kids inspire me every day, and our goal with the World Leadership Conference is to give back a little bit of that inspiration.” “At the conclusion of this year’s World Leadership Conference, we are confident that these New Look youth leaders will be inspired to motivate their peers in their community,” said Shawn H. Wilson, President, Usher’s New Look Foundation. “Throughout the past 13 years, New Look’s programming has been instrumental in shaping the lives of more than 10,000 of the top youth leaders around the world.” Source:
