The pandemic-inflicted challenges in the past two years forced businesses to take extraordinary crisis management measures in real time, with zero planning. The massive scale of the outbreak and its unpredictability make it challenging for executives to respond. As we step into 2022, business leaders, amid the tough challenges such as the Great Resignation, talent war, digital transformation roadblocks, supply chain disruption, ESG compliances, have to find ways to switch from a survival mode strategy and utilise the experience to prepare for an ever-changing future. 

On the other hand, despite so much loss and pain the pandemic has created, it has put tremendous mojo in accelerating the Unicorn boom – in 2022, unicorns are being minted at a rate of more than one a day.

This track aims to give busy executives the opportunity to get up to speed on the latest leadership concepts and business trends. Join us if you are looking for some executive inspirations and would like to discuss tomorrow’s challenges as well as share ideas on how to leverage current business opportunities.
