The essay of Khuyen was titled “Know yourself and focus on contribution - a reflection on Drucker's managing oneself”. The award will fund Khuyen a trip to a conference on Peter Drucker Global Forum in Vienna in November which will be attended by a number of world leaders and celebrities in the field of communications.

The Peter Drucker Society Europe organized the contest to raise the awareness of students and young entrepreneurs about the works of Drucker (1909-2005), an Austrian and the world’s leading expert on management consulting.

“I’m very happy for winning the award. It will be the first trip to Europe in my life. I will have the opportunity to meet with world leaders, researchers and policymakers," said Khuyen.

He has enjoyed and read a lot of books by author Drucker and became interested in the contest from an event held at his university. At the event, he met Ms. Joan Snyder Kuhl, co-author of the book named “Peter Drucker's Five Most Important Questions”.

Ms. Kuhl is a member of the jury of the Global Peter Drucker Challenge 2015. She realized the excitement of Khuyen for Drucker's works and encouraged him to participate in the contest.

“Bui is a talented writer. He can become an influential person on the younger generation," said Ms. Kuhl./.
