MaritimeMT CEO Pauline Micallef on Tuesday announced that she will be participating in this year’s The Duke of Edinburgh’s Commonwealth Study Conference, aimed at building leadership capacity across the Commonwealth.
The conference, which will be held in Banff, Canada between 3rd June and 18th June, will bring together 300 of the world’s “most promising emerging leaders” from business, Government, labour, and the community sector. Over the two weeks, the conference will expose them to new experiences, “provoking arguments and different perspectives” in order to improve the quality and relevance leaders’ decision-making.
The first conference was held in 1956, with Founder Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, insisting that the members should be people who “appeared likely to be in the next generations of leaders so that when the time came for them to take important decisions, they would have the benefit of what they had discovered at the study conference to help them”.
Ms Micallef recalled how she was first invited to participate back in July 2022, when she received an email from The Malta Chamber saying that it is a “once in a lifetime opportunity” to take part.
“After an intense application and selection process, I was accepted to represent Malta together with another Maltese professionals at this study conference,” she said. Ms Micallef will take part alongside another Maltese participant, Zerafa Advocates Founder Omar Zerafa.
“With only 10 days to go, I am so looking forward to meeting different leaders from across the Commonwealth countries in Banff,” Ms Micallef said, before noting that the theme for this year’s conference is “Engaged leadership for inclusive change”.
Ms Micallef has served as CEO at maritime training institution MaritimeMT for over two years, overseeing its overall strategy, managing employees, and ensuring “compliance to regulatory frameworks”. She is also a Tutor at Level Up Malta, an organisation that provides tuition for Microsoft Excel to beginners, intermediate, and advanced level professionals. She holds a Master of Business Administration from Henley Business School, together with an accounting qualification in Accounting and Finance from the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants. Ms Micallef describes herself as “passionate about achieving business goals and helping individuals develop their financial knowledge and skills”.
