MIAMI, Oct. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Former Colombian president and current senator, Álvaro Uribe received the Executive MasterMind Latino 2018 Award in Miami for his contribution to regional leadership. Uribe was the main attraction on the last day of MasterMind Latino, an event put together by the Instituto Europeo de Inteligencias Eficientes (IEIE) and Cala Enterprises.

MasterMind Latino gathered an exclusive group of businesspeople together for discussions with leading multinational companies such as BMW, American Express, Asian Broadcast Satellite, Cerealto, Grupo Siro, Ángel Sánchez USA, Qignition LLC and Santander Music. The invited CEOs became professors and inspiration for success over the three days of immersion into corporate and leadership techniques.

And that warmth and closeness alone is the distinguishing feature of MasterMind Latino,” explained Ismael Cala, strategist and president of Cala Enterprises.
