The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) has two key themes. The first is the promotion of altruism. UPF uses the slogan, ‘Living for the sake of others’. This conference has dealt with a lot about branding. The ultimate branding is to be respected and trusted as someone who has integrity, a company that is law abiding and is a valuable stakeholder in the community or nation or a nation that is respected for its contribution to solving the problems of other less fortunate nations or to resolving world problems.
Honourable members of the Parliament, Distinguished Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen, Today, I want to take this chance to remember a person who changed my perspective on leadership, in different ways. He was a very special person to many people who knew him. He was also able to inspire even those who never met him. I find it difficult to describe the essential truth about him as a person.
