The brainchild of successful Indonesian business leader and former Cabinet Member, Tanri Abeng, the Bali's Executive Center for Global Leadership (ECGL) seeks to bring together leading international academics and top decision makers from the public and private sectors to discuss issues of the day and how excellence in management techniques can be applied to such matters for the overall betterment of society.
To pursue such inspired goals the ECGL has also selected a inspired location: a volcanic mountainside high in Bali's mountain-lake district of Bedugul. Located at the Bali Handara Mountain Resort, home to a Peter Thompson designed golf course, the ECGL Campus is 66 kilometers north of Denpasar's Airport and the beaches of Nusa Dua, Kuta and Sanur. The Campus is located amid the lush highlands at an altitude of 1,142 meters and is nestled in the crater of an extinct volcano that enjoys year round average daily temperatures of between 16-20 degrees Celsius.
This is the dramatic and refreshing setting for seminars led by world leaders in management practice dealing with topics tied to corporate governance, management practice, managing and leading change, professional development, and privatization issues. A multi-day seminar at ECGL can cost between US$1,800 - $3,000 – exposing small groups of select participants to lectures by top government and business leaders from around the world.
Founded by Tanri Abeng and a number of other visionary Indonesian businessman, including among others Minister Aburizal Bakrie, Vice-President Jusuf Kala, and former Minister for Economic Affairs Professor Dr. Dorojatun Kuntjoro-Jakti - ECGL has a proven track record of attracting top players from the region's businesses to learn directly from the leading-edge shapers of management theory and practice such as Henri Claude de Bettingnes of INSEAD, Roger Gill of the Leadership Trust, James O'Toole of USC and Roberto F. Decampo of the Asian Institute of Management - to name but a few.
The Founder of ECGL is one of Indonesia's most respected business and civic leaders. Born in humble circumstances on Selayar Island in South Sulawesi, he worked his way through Hasanuddin University in Makssar before receiving a scholarship to pursue a Master of Business Administration degree from the State University of New York. After graduation he was accepted as a management trainee with Union Carbide in the U.S.A. where he quickly rose in the ranks to become, at the tender age of only 29, a finance director and corporate secretary for the multinational. Eventually assigned to their Singapore office, he was given responsibility for Union Carbides European, Asian and African marketing.
In 1979 he was finally lured back home to Indonesia to assume the post of Chief Executive Officer for Indonesia's leading brewery - P T Multi Bintang. In 1991 he moved on to a new challenge – the restructuring and rationalization of the Bakrie Group, a company he eventually led to a successful public offering. In 1999 Tanri Abeng was called to serve as a State Minister in charge of restructuring State Owned Enterprises (BUMN).
