The Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel recently had the honor of working with and hosting the Prince’s Trust International Leadership Programme. The Prince’s Trust is a foundation in the United Kingdom that provides free programming to troubled youth (unemployed or struggling in school), to help transform their lives through educational and job-related opportunities.
The International Leadership Programme is a 12-month program that encourages young leaders to make a positive impact in their own local communities. This event brought together 54 delegates from 17 different countries. During the week, delegates heard from prestigious leaders and dignitaries such as Kofi Annan and Kate Adie, OBE DL, and also listened to the success stories of many young individuals who had overcome adversity and had succeeded in building a healthy future for themselves.
The highlight for delegates was the honor of meeting His Royal Highness, Prince of Wales, the founder of the Prince’s Trust at a dedicated reception at Windsor Castle hosted by Lloyd Dorfman, CBE Chairman of Prince’s Trust International.
