Dear Partners, Associates and friends of GRLI - our December 2016 newsletter contained reference to some of the information below but I wanted to ensure you have the very latest update on hand, and if possible involve you virtually or in person during the coming weeks.

Starting today the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting is meeting in Davos to discuss "Responsive and Responsible Leadership".

I would like to encourage all GRLI partners and associates, as thought-and-action leaders on this topic, to follow the event online and to support our social media campaign on Twitter. Your virtual engagement and endorsement during WEF17 will help raise the profile of GRLI's work and partnership and bring more legitimacy and insight to the discussion and proceedings in Davos.

Act now by adding your voice on Twitter: share on Twitter

A number of exciting events and developments that I wish to bring under your attention:
