WEF & YGLs in Dubai

February 11 to 14, 2017 – While I was in Dubai to moderate a Conversation with a Master talk with my teacher/mentor 98-year-old yoga master Tao Porchon-Lynch for the World Government Summit, I was delighted to connect with my World Economic Forum family.

In 2009, I was named a Young Global Leader (YGL) by the Forum recognizing my “professional accomplishments, commitment to society and potential for shaping the future of the world.” In 2010, I was a discussion leader for the “Economics of Happiness” at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, and I’ve participated in Forums around the world. So, I was thrilled that Tao got a chance to meet WEF Founder & Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab during this World Government Summit. He held a private talk and lunch with YGLs and Global Shapers who were at the Summit. Afterwards, Tao joined to meet some of my colleagues and say hello to Professor Schwab, whom she met two days before. Perhaps we’ll have Tao at one of our future Forum events.

See pictures below and then read more and see pictures from my time with Tao at the World Government Summit.
