The MasterClass is based on the 21st Century Board Leadership Model © created and owned by Dr Ravi Fernando in June 2021


We believe that the Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated that ‘21st Century Leadership vs 20th Century Leadership’ has made the difference. By this we mean leadership where a realistic, scientific, and strategic approach has prevailed over denial, in the nations managing the crises well. The new normal is where national and business disruption will be caused regularly by – climate change, health, geo-politics, new technology and governance failures which will lead to economic emergencies. Every one of them will risk devastating the best laid out plans of both Nations and businesses.

While it is impossible to ‘eliminate’ risk, 21st Century Board Leaders will ‘proactively’ mobilise strategies and actions plans to ‘minimise’ risk from a scientific and triple bottom line perspective.

The concept of ‘21st Century Board Leadership Model’©, which like Strategic Corporate Sustainability© (USPTO granted the copyright in 2010, US Copyright © TX0008880097 of 17 June 2020) is one which Global Strategic Corporate Sustainability Pvt. Ltd has now applied to the US Patent Office for a copyright as we believe it will be a game changer for every board in the years ahead.


The Programme will be delivered in 7 webinars of 2 hours in duration, with each covering a topic as listed below. The 2 hours include a panel discussion with Luxembourg professionals who will express their views on how each of the topics fits into the global and local business environment, and respond to questions from the participants.

In addition, each participant will be inspired to develop a company specific – ‘21st Century Board Leadership strategy’ template using the model. This will be reviewed by Dr Ravi Fernando and Raymond Schadeck at the end of the course. The objective is that every participant takes back a proposal to their company Board/CEO to build on and create a 21st Century Board strategy based on what they have learned. Every participant should be able to answer the question, ‘What did you learn and how will it benefit our company?
