Leadership Development Organization Takes Wisconsin Residents Across The Globe
Madison, WI: Leadership Wisconsin, a statewide leadership development organization working to strengthen Wisconsin, is accepting applications for Seminar Scholars to travel to Croatia or Finland for an International Travel Seminar in spring 2018. These unique educational experiences offer accepted Seminar Scholars the opportunity to study leadership skills in the context of important local and global issues. Anyone is welcome to apply by September 1, 2017 for Croatia and November 1, 2017 for Finland.
The International Travel Seminar to Croatia is an opportunity to study entrepreneurial leadership through the country’s history of transition and turmoil. While Croatia is similar to Wisconsin in many ways, including population size and major economic sectors, its complex history and membership in the European Union provide a unique look at how leaders have tackled local and national challenges.
The International Travel Seminar to Finland explores the innovation and collaboration employed by Finland to help them maintain a leading role in the global economy. Built on a foundation of competition and innovation, Finland offers the perfect landscape to study the intersections of government, education and business as it relates to economic growth.
Although Leadership Wisconsin has been bringing Wisconsin residents across the globe for over thirty years, this is the first time two International Travel Seminar opportunities will be available to individuals outside of the alumni network. Many alumni of Leadership Wisconsin programming credit the International Travel Seminar as being one of the most transformational experiences of their life.

Leadership Wisconsin is a statewide leadership development organization with a national reputation for producing highly effective leaders. Since 1983, Leadership Wisconsin has graduated over 400 alumni from their unique programming and continues to create new, innovative approaches to leadership development in order to realize a stronger Wisconsin.
