COMMANDER OF THE NAVY ADDRESSES MBA STUDENTS AT COLOMBO UNIVERSITY
Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Jayanath Colombage addressed the MBA students of the Colombo University on 18th January 2014. His inspirational speech titled "Developing Next Wave of Organizational Leaders for Sri Lanka" held the audience spell-bound due to the wealth of information it shared drawing on the experiences of a victorious Navy that has won wide acclaim the world over and an exemplary leader who regards career not as a sprint but a marathon where every opportunity counts. Focusing the aspiring corporate leaders' attention on the success behind naval leadership, Vice Admiral Colombage stated that navigation is both a science as well as an art that enables a ship to be taken from one place to another. Although that science can be taught, the art which lies beneath must be acquired to achieve the desired success, he stressed.
