Seminar: Driving Disruption: Local Leaders, Global Impact
Today, enduring and successful iconic brands are built by their ability to be nimble and evolve with the ever-changing demands of the high-speed, image-focused and socially-conscious consumer. From the electric car revolution, anti-fast fashion, and local food movement to beauty, lifestyle and travel, join this dynamic conversation with a panel of true “change makers” – from global brands to potent social entrepreneurs. We'll examine disruption and what it means to evolve the macro strategy of a large company, the internal impact of change, balancing external challenges with strategic evolution and the drive to lead change, staying relevant and future-proof.
• Isabel Fan, Country Director of Tesla Motors Hong Kong
• Annabelle Baker, Director of LUSH Asia Limited
• Christina Dean, Founder of sustainable fashion NGO Redress
• Chantal Wong, Director of Culture and Workshop Producer of Eaton Workshop

With more attention on the startup scene than ever, it’s arguably the best and worst time to make the jump. It’s the best time because the potential for game-changing innovation and financial growth is attractive to say the least. But it’s also the worst because this overly zealous attitude is causing the word “overvalued” to be thrown around left and right. The reality is that generally you do your hours, your prospects are never guaranteed, and your pay and benefits will likely be lower than a cushy corporate job.
