Robin Bourne-Taylor, Right to Dream’s Managing Director, has been named as a 2018 Eisenhower Global Fellow. Representing 23 countries across Asia, Africa, Europe, Latin America and the South Pacific, the recipients were chosen based on the ingenuity of their ideas and their proven track records of leadership in a variety of fields, including government, education, entrepreneurship, energy, health care, law, non-profits and the arts. General Colin L. Powell, USA (Retired), chairman of Eisenhower Fellowships (EF), said these mid-career leaders will continue the proud tradition of Eisenhower Fellows crossing boundaries to promote peaceful dialogue and international understanding. “These leaders represent an incredibly talented cohort that is full of potential to serve as change makers,” the general said. “They are committed to the mission of Eisenhower Fellowships, of creating a world more peaceful, prosperous, and just.” For seven weeks, from April 2 until May 18, 23 Eisenhower Fellows will crisscross the United States, pursuing individual projects and engaging in transformative exchanges of knowledge and ideas with leading thinkers in their respective fields.

On his Fellowship Robin wants to meet with executives, influencers & patrons in organisations with shared values in African youth development, STEM technical education, and collegiate / MLS soccer. He also seeks to connect with media and marketing experts to help leverage media content in creating new partnerships. His project aims to build expertise and a professional network in order to grow the Right to Dream model, by developing charitable and commercial revenue streams.
