Sri Lanka’s Finest Rally Together to Fight Cancer

Six of Sri Lanka’s best known leaders, the crème de la crème of the business, sports and administrative arenas in the country, came together on the 11th of June 2010, to share insights on the paths they took towards exceptional leadership. The ‘Talk Leadership. Fight Cancer’ Leadership Seminar was attended by over 300 delegates from 60 top corporates of Sri Lanka. The seminar was organized by the Colours of Courage Trust, an organization founded in 2008 to address the needs of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Maharagama, and the patients entrusted to its care.  

The list of speakers at the event were Rajendra Theagarajah - Managing Director of Hatton National Bank Plc, Dr. Hans Wijayasuriya, Director/ Group Chief Executive - Dialog Telekom Plc, Chairman of Eswaran Brothers Exports (Pvt) Ltd - Deivanayagam Eassuwaren, Sri Lanka’s former cricket captain Mahela Jayawardena, Dian Gomes - Group Director of MAS Holdings and the Commander of the Sri Lanka Army, Lieutenant General Jagath Jayasuriya. The six speakers united for this generous cause and gave their valuable time free of charge to instil leadership values in current and future leaders who participated in the seminar.

All proceeds from the event will go towards the establishment of the first Medical Intensive Care Unit at NCI and the expansion of the existing Surgical ICU. Cinnamon Grand was the event partner for the seminar.
