The award ceremony

The Tällberg Foundation paid tribute to four outstanding Global Leaders who have demonstrated the kind of leadership demanded by the challenges of the 21st century: innovative, imaginative, flexible, systems-based, risk-taking and, above all, ethical. By honoring them, the Foundation not only seeks to nurture and extend their accomplishments, but also to encourage others to follow their examples.
