AmCham Human Capital Conference 2013: Developing Asian Talent for Global Impact

8:00am Registration/ Coffee/ Sponsors' Exhibitions
8:20am - 3:15pm Conference (Lunch included, 12:45pm-2pm)

Hosted by the Human Capital Committee

AmCham’s 22nd Annual Human Capital Conference will explore how to develop Asian talent into leadership roles, both for Asia and  for impact in the global world. 

With the development of Asia, the global talent pool has increased in diversity. There is greater mobility of Asians within and out of Asia, while westerners are also attracted to Asia by the opportunities available for career development. Despite this, leadership roles in Asia and globally are still often filled by Westerners, leaving Asian talent out of the boardroom. Businesses are now recognising that this is a very real challenge because successful companies know that not only does Asian talent increase their pool of talent, but also that developing a diverse and inclusive leadership team and workforce improves the bottom line.  The Conference will hear from thought leaders, CEOs and Senior HR leaders about how they are positioning their organizations for success.

Target Audience: Business leaders looking for unique keys to success and anyone who is interested in building their leadership teams in Asia, for Asia and for a global world where Asia has become an ever growing presence.
