Global leaders in innovation will meet in Puerto Rico to discuss the challenges of competitiveness in a globalized environment during the “Tools that Drive New Paths to Prosperity” forum, taking place at the Caribe Hilton hotel today.

The congress sponsored by the Global Leadership Institute and Dale Carnegie Puerto Rico will gather six forerunners in globalized innovation, including: Pallavi Jha, founder of an innovative school program in partnership with the government of India; John de Armas, a leading thinker with more than 20 years experience in corporate strategy, branding and marketing; Irene Rosberg, authority in worldwide maritime and logistics; and Horacio Saccoman, a mergers and acquisitions expert.

The conference will be moderated by journalist and anchor for CNN in Spanish, Ismael Cala, who will present his vision, “The Power of Play: The key to innovation, leadership and prosperity.”

“We will explore how innovation provides practical solutions for models with applicability to Puerto Rico, how it impacts on productivity and leads us to become truly global citizens with the tools necessary to achieve career success,” said Dale Carnegie Puerto Rico President, Oliver Trapp.

The congress, he said, recognizes that the individual is a highly valued resource in the international job market and seeks to enlighten them on the appropriate behavior for innovation to enable them to become highly employable professionals.

“This is the right time to arrange enriching dialogues that expand our vision, through a learning process to lead us to success,” Trapp said. “Institutions face the challenge of preparing students for global markets and are expected to play a key role in Puerto Rico’s socio-economic transformation. For professionals facing the challenges of a shrinking economy, it is essential to adopt new techniques and skills to improve career prospects.”

During the congress, leaders from Denmark, Brazil, India and Germany will share their proven strategies in fast-growing countries and how these nations are committed to the emphasis on education and training of human resources to alleviate crises and redirect their efforts to achieve prosperity.
