The foundation provides career development opportunities for talented individuals in emerging Asia through the Global Trade Leader Development program, which serves as a talent pipeline platform for companies. 

The program is managed and administered entirely by Hinrich Foundation, and consists of three crucial components: Recruit candidates that match exactly what a company needs; Co-sponsor a Master’s degree with integrated work experience with the co-sponsoring company and Provide a minimum two-year employment contract to develop the candidate into a future leader in the company. 

Alex Boome, Program Director and Alex Ward, Education Program Manager from Hinrich Foundation will be in Sri Lanka from 21-25 September and invites any export companies with talent development needs to connect with them to see how their program can address the needs.
