Former #1 Ranked Tennis Player and Multi Grand Slam Champion, Philanthropist and Education Advocate

Widely regarded as one of the greatest tennis players in history, Andre Agassi amassed an impressive record of 60 men’s singles titles, which included capturing eight Grand Slam championships, during his illustrious 20-year career. A former world no.1, Agassi went on to etch his name in the annals of tennis history by becoming the first male player ever to achieve the remarkable feat of winning all four Grand Slam titles and an Olympic gold medal. He was also a member of three winning Davis Cup teams in 1990, 1992, and 1995. 

Agassi also was notable for the charitable ventures he undertook, including the founding of the Andre Agassi Foundation (1994) to aid at-risk children. This foundation has played a pivotal role in education reform, raising over $180 million. His highly acclaimed autobiography, Open, was published in 2009 and it soared to the number one spot on the New York Times bestseller list. In recognition of his contributions to the sport, Agassi was rightfully inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 2011.

World renowned business thinker and management innovator

Gary Hamel is one of the world’s most influential and iconoclastic business thinkers who has led transformational efforts in some of the world’s most notable companies helping to create billions of dollars in shareholder value. For over four decades, Hamel has served on the faculty of the London Business School and he is the director of the Management Lab. Hamel is an author of landmark books such as Competing for the Future, The Future of Management and Humanocracy: Creating Organizations as Amazing as the People Inside Them. The Wall Street Journal has ranked Hamel as the world’s most influential business thinker, and Fortune magazine has called him “the world’s leading expert on business strategy.”

Prime Minister of New Zealand (2017-2023) Senior Fellow, Harvard University

The Right Honourable Dame Jacinda Ardern became the Prime Minister of New Zealand at just 37 years of age. During her time in office she faced the challenges of a live streamed domestic terror attack against New Zealand’s Muslim community, a volcanic eruption and the COVID 19 pandemic. Ms Ardern’s focus on people, kindness and what she has called “pragmatic idealism” saw New Zealand achieve some of the lowest losses of life experienced by any developed nation through the pandemic, the ban of military style semi-automatic weapons in her country, and the creation of the Christchurch Call to Action to eliminate violent extremism online, which Ms Ardern continues to hold the role of Special Envoy. 

Ms Ardern is a champion of women’s empowerment. While in office, New Zealand reached 50 percent representation of women in parliament, and on government appointed boards. She decriminalised abortion, improved pay equity laws and extended paid parental leave to 6 months – all while being only the second woman in the world to have a baby while leading her country.  Ms Ardern is a passionate advocate on climate action and is a board member of The Earthshot Prize, focusing on solutions to climate change and environmental issues.
