UNESCO Chooses ClarkMorgan for "Decade of Education" Program

Shanghai, China, November 16, 2011 --(PR.com)-- UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), an agency of the United Nations established in 1945 to promote the exchange of information, ideas, and culture, is holding a series of seminars for selected local school children as part of their "Decade of Education" program. Rupert Munton, senior trainer for ClarkMorgan Corporate Training, presented to seventy 15 and 16-year-old school Hong Kong students.

According to UNESCO’s website, the key to a more sustainable future is education. ClarkMorgan shares this belief and helps to build awareness towards achieving this goal. Rupert Munton, a veteran ClarkMorgan trainer, was the first in a continuing cooperation with UNESCO.

“It was a new kind of audience for me,” commented Mr Munton after the three-hour training, “But very rewarding.” Mr. Munton handled three different subjects; “I taught them about communication, leadership and creativity skills,” he later commented.

Mitzi Leung, the Vice President of the UNESCO Hong Kong Association, was especially happy about most of the teenagers’ reactions, “Most of these kids aren’t normally this forthcoming, but Rupert got the best out of them. These days having skills is more important than knowledge.”

Mitzi Leung is delighted about collaboration with ClarkMorgan. “Our mindset is quite alike and I’m looking forward to working with ClarkMorgan again in the future.”

Mr Munton received a certificate of thanks from UNESCO at the end of the day, but the biggest reward came from the kids. “It literally took me 30 minutes to get out of the building after the training, because everyone wanted a photo with ‘the English bloke,’” Mr Munton later recalled.
