Danilo Türk, president of SloveniaImage via WikipediaI rarely remark on what a President of a small country says but with Danilo Turk I will make an exception. I just heard him speak at the Forbes CEO Forum in Cannes and much to my surprise he made a lot of sense. Steve Forbes interviewed him and confronted with a lot of questions that he answered extremely well, without absurd, political sounding promises. What was remarkable was how much he knew about the world scene. So while at the conference I wikied him and it turns out that he is an outstanding global diplomat. Am I one of the few who had no idea who he was? My favorite phrase out of his presentation? To end a war does not necessarily mean to learn to build in peace, witness Kosovo.
