|Speaker(s)||Roland Decorvet - Mercy Ships, Africa Mercy Managing Director|
Management learning and experience sharing from running Nestlé China to leading Mercy Ships Africa Mercy, the largest civilian hospital ship in the world.
Roland Décorvet has spent 23 years with Nestlé, where he was Chairman and CEO of Nestlé China until April 2014. Earlier in his career, he served as CEO of Nestlé Switzerland and CEO of Nestlé Pakistan and Afghanistan. In 2013, he was named "Businessman of the Year" at the China Financial Leaders Annual Conference. The news of Roland Décorvet, originally from Switzerland, leaving Nestlé at the end of April 2014 has surprised many and he received a significant press coverage for his decision to spend a year with Mercy Ships, a non-governmental humanitarian organization founded in Lausanne in 1978, as Managing Director of the Africa Mercy.
Roland Décorvet will give us a unique perspective on applying his experience as a senior corporate leader within a humanitarian organization and will share his learning, a year after his move.
Mercy Ships was founded in Lausanne in 1978 by Don Stephens. Here is what Nelson Mandela once said about Mercy Ships: “I applaud Mercy Ships in their efforts of transformational development as they make a lasting difference in a world of need. Mercy Ships has committed themselves to the vision of an African renaissance in their vision of bringing hope and healing to the continent of Africa. … I salute the vision and mission of Mercy Ships and ask that you join me in supporting their noble work and contribute to make this world a better place.”
