A successful Business Future may well hinge on a re-discovery of Stewardship. Businesses must, and can be a force of good.
The Stewardship Asia Roundtable brings together the region's influential thinkers and leaders for a dynamic exchange of ideas on advocating sound stewardship and governance in their organisations and businesses. By invitation only, this exclusive platform will allow invited steward-leaders to mutually share best-in-class practices and experience in promoting stewardship and governance applications which will create wealth for stakeholders and benefit the larger community over the long term.
In recent years, technological advancements have led to life-changing innovations. However, in the first two decades of the 21st century, we have already witnessed two severe global economic recessions, increasingly polarising politics, rising resource/income inequality and massive environmental degradation. We live in times where exciting growth opportunities coexist with existential threats to current and future generations.
Can businesses fully exploit the growth opportunities and sustain their success without addressing these challenges? Will traditional models of leadership and management be adequate to ensure long-term profitability and growth in an increasingly connected and transparent world? We need to inspire new thinking that creates a WIN-WIN-WIN scenario wherein individuals, organisations and humanity can thrive together.
Performance, People, Planet. In other words to do well, to do good, to do right.
We live in a world that holds both tremendous business opportunities and very obvious challenges.
