David Hoey, CEO WorldSkills International
It was only two years ago that WorldSkills achieved a major milestone in its development – the unanimous adoption of the new WorldSkills Brand. This has helped re-define who we are and what we want to be – the essence or promise of what will be delivered or experienced under “WorldSkills”. This has brought extra purpose and focus to our future development, and a commitment to work in six focus areas to achieve impact towards our mission and vision. These focus areas are Promoting Skills, Career Building, Skills Competitions, Education and Training, International Cooperation and Development, and Research.
