The Challenge is an annual competition where students and young professionals from around the world write and submit a personal narrative essay based around the management philosophy of Peter Drucker.
This year’s entrants were asked to write a narrative-based essay on the theme of human prosperity in a changing world. Shivanie placed in 6th place out of ten in the Manager/Entrepreneur Category. Her essay discusses the power of human potential and people's drive to live a happy, successful and meaningful life despite the societal and economic factors preventing many people across the globe from doing so.
As a winner, Shivanie will have the privilege of travelling to Vienna, the birthplace of Peter Drucker, to participate in the 9th Global Peter Drucker Forum on November 16-17, 2017. She will be able to attend the Drucker Challenge Get-Together and Speakers' reception at City Hall, the Gala event/Awards ceremony and a guided tour at Schönbrunn Palace. She will also receive a certificate of achievement and a one-year-all-access subscription to the Harvard Business review.
Congratulations, Shivanie, on winning this award and writing a fantastic, moving essay.
