Little has been documented about the widening values gap. We are all witnessing the immense popularity of Sustainability and Environmental university degrees attracting young high potential leaders and now the rise of Social Enterprises capturing the imagination, passion and energy of both young and more mature leaders. As a coach and executive search consultant I speak every day to senior executives who are planning their exits long before normal retirement age to either become Non-Executive...

Need for developing our new generation of business leaders

24 June in ENERGY ACADEMY

Published by Hurriyet Daily News | Date: June/30/2014Authors:Mehmet Öğütçü, Executive Chair, The Bosphorus Energy Club,Andrew Roscoe, Head, Egon Zehnder Limited  [caption id="attachment_1719" align="alignleft" width="200"] Mehmet Öğütçü[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1781" align="alignleft" width="200"] Andrew Rescoe[/caption] We have a serious gap in world-class leadership in both governments and corporates. With changing times, the old qualities of personal charisma, God-gifted stature, and the power to mobilise people and get things done still matter – but they are no longer enough. As the world economy, business, technology and geopolitics have gone through a major powershift over the past decade, leaders need to not only adapt to these changes and to promote innovation, but...

The Syrian civil war had forced 2.7 million Syrians to register as refugees outside the country between 2011 and May 2014.

Can Iraq Be Saved?

17 June in ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Published by: nationalinterest.org Zalmay Khalilzad,June 17, 2014. "The situation in Iraq, as well as the one in Syria, demonstrates that the United States cannot wish away the problems of the Middle East." The sudden fall of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, and large swaths of the country’s Sunni regions to groups of insurgents and extremists spearheaded by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a grim manifestation of the failure of the country’s leaders to implement a system of governance as agreed in the constitution. Iraq’s mistakes—and those of the international community, including the United States—were not unavoidable, though, and the lessons...

Published by Caspian Center for Energy and EnvironmentJune 2014 | No.7 Background In the past month, the international spotlight has been on the 400 billion USD gas deal reached between Russia and China.

The Russia-Ukraine Crisis: Preliminary Reflections on Turkey’s Policy

10 June in ENERGY ACADEMY, GEOPOLITICS

Published by The German Marshall Fund of the United States - June 6, 2014 - By Şaban Kardaş.Summary: Turkey realizes that the Russia-Ukraine crisis has to be dealt with through the involvement of the major powers, and it is acting accordingly.

Though objecting to the Russian annexation of Crimea, Turkey has stopped short of actions that may lead to severing of the political ties, and it is realistic to expect the same approach to continue to prevail. However,...

EU-Turkish Energy Relations in the Context of EU Accession Negotiations: Focus on Natural Gas

05 June in ENERGY, ENERGY ACADEMY

David Koranyi and Nicolò Sartori Abstract The European Union (EU) and Turkey have been on a divergent path over the past five years, but energy security is one of those sectors where the two partners would clearly benefit from closer cooperation. This paper explores energy relations between Turkey and the EU in the context of EU accession talks, focusing on natural gas as a strategic component of these relations. Turkey is in an ambiguous situation when it comes to its role as a strategic transit hub for energy supplies to Europe due to its strong geographic location on the one hand and its heavy dependence on gas imports on the other....
