Speaking on the theme ‘Characteristics of a World Class Team’ – Dr. Naomal Balasuriya highlighted the importance of team work and explained in detail the significance of working as a team in order to achieve optimum productivity. He explained the characteristics of a team and its importance within the organisation – to share a world class vision and stated that a successful world class team should have – One Vision and One Direction. 


Whilst emphasising on the formula ‘Keep things Simple – Do the Basics Right’ – he spoke on the three cardinal features of a world class team and explained in detail the desire to be world class – a world class vision and the nothing is impossible attitude. 

In conclusion, Dr. Naomal challenged the audience and left them with the following thoughts:

  • Be World Class – nothing less
  • Be World Class for sure – but it has to be ethical, legal, moral, honest, spiritual
  • It must make this world a better place than when we found it at birth
