In October 2016, Key hosted twenty-two executives from the Brazilian organizations in the state of Paraná, SEBRAE (Serviço Brasileiro de Apoio às Micro e Pequenas Empresas- Brazilian Service of Assistance to Micro and Small Enterprises) and SESCOOP (Serviço Nacional de Aprendizagem do Cooperativismo – National Learning Cooperative Service) for a week-long “New Perspectives on Leadership” certificate program.

Participants included presidents of various cooperatives in the areas of agriculture, credit, health and dental, infrastructure and more in the southern Brazilian state. Participants were introduced to curricula relating to leadership, small business administration, and other topics geared to help them tackle the tough issues within their economy at present. Other portions of their program included a presentation on the World Economic Outlook Report by an economist from International Monetary Fund (IMF) at the very point in time that the report was being made public, as well as visits to the National Cooperative Business Association and MSI Worldwide.
