TLDG’s inspirational setting at the Thayer Hotel at West Point is constantly reinforcing the leadership principles that are taught at West Point and that are taught to executives at TLDG.
The rooms at the Thayer Hotel, where TLDG’s attendees stay, are often named after inspirational West Point graduates who have led in all areas of human endeavor around the world.
This month for instance, a room was dedicated to President Fidel V. Ramos, the retired President of the Philippines. A graduate of West Point as an international cadet in 1950, Ramos served in uniform in the Philippines rising from a platoon leader through the Chief of the Philippine Defense Forces (equivalent to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs), then was appointed Secretary of Philippine Defense Forces (similar to the Secretary of Defense) and then was elected as the President of the Philippines. A soldier at heart, he fought communism for five decades, and fought for peace. Under his leadership peace thrived and the economy boomed.
TLDG guests who stay at the Thayer Hotel can now request the Ramos room as their room of choice (subject to availability). The link below gives a summary of President Ramos' room dedication ceremony.
