Sebastian spoke to us about his experience returning to Romania, and the link between education and economic development. He spends much of his time working in the Romanian IT sector where he trains, mentors and coaches companies in talent development. It is clear that he sees education as a very powerful tool, and he is driven to motivate and equip people. He makes a very compelling case for Economic development through education.
He cites the 3.5% rule, which states that if this proportion of the population start to think and act differently, then things can start to change. This is critical, and demonstrates how education in developing nations will create leaders who can facilitate positive change and development on a local level.
