Business as a Force for Good
9 - 10 November 2018, Singapore
Dearest Alumni, faculty and friends of INSEAD,
We are pleased to invite you all to the next exciting INSEAD Alumni Forum in Asia that will take place in Singapore, 9 – 11th November 2018.
Join us for two full days on engaging conversations with C-level executives, global decision makers, INSEAD faculty and thought leaders about the future of business in society and business as force for good.
INSEAD has always had big ambitions and this forum is no difference. A tremendous topic that affects everyone around the world whether you are an entrepreneur, a CEO, a people manager, a researcher, a member of government organisations, political leader or a social impact leader.
This is a unique opportunity to interact with influential thinkers, leaders and academia on how education and business can be the main engine for positive social change, lifting people out of poverty around the world. So that in the process of value creation for a company, we all think about how we can create value for the society.
We will also have an unforgettable weekend of social events and experiences with company visits in Singapore, family events, random dinners across the city, sports events for the fit and a spectacular gala event not to be missed at the unique Gardens by the Bay setting.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Singapore and to our Asia Campus in November.
