Intrapreneurialism has been a game-changer for organizations, fostering a culture of innovation and initiative among employees. The Global Intrapreneurs Institute has been instrumental in encouraging intrapreneurial thinking within the corporate and academic framework and bringing intrapreneurial individuals to the world stage, which has led to sharing groundbreaking ideas and empowering teams.

I enjoyed increasing my understanding of various topics related to intrapreneurialism and hearing the diversity of thoughts at the 2023 Global Intrapreneurs Summit and Awards Ceremony.

If you are not yet connected with the Global Intrapreneurs Institute, I encourage you to do it for yourself, your organizations, and your education systems.

Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. Intrapreneurship is about making a difference and bringing about positive change for the people of the world.

I would like to express a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Irena Yashin-Shaw and the team at the Global Intrapreneurs Institute, for the truly inspiring and motivational work which they are undertaking, to contribute to social, economic and environmental global sustainable development by supporting the work of intrapreneurs around the world. It is contributing to improving the quality of life and standard of living of many people.

Despite the fact that I have been engaged with Entrepreneurship development over the last 30 years and Intrapreneurship development for the last 3 years, the Global Intrapreneurs Summit had many AH-HA moments for me. It not only reinforced my belief that intrapreneurship is the new frontier for organizations and employees, but also that it will grow to become a big movement. Thank you again and I wish you and your team success in your endeavours.

The program for the Global Intrapreneurs Summit was delicious! I particularly appreciated the diversity of regions which allowed me to uncover the best practices from around the globe. I also really appreciated the share of experiences from sectors which I am not familiar with. I think that intrapreneurship has the ability to play an important role for the future of organizations, and this summit was a great opportunity to demonstrate its effects on companies that give it a try.
