YPO Southeast Asia Hosts Insights ASEAN Summit 2016, Exclusively for Leading Chief Executives across Asia

Event to focus on driving change and the need for business agility, adaptability and foresight

SINGAPORE, Oct 25, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - The Southeast Asia Region of YPO, the premier chief executive leadership organization in the world, will host its third-annual Insights ASEAN Summit 2016 (IAS) in Singapore, 17-18 November.

Once a year, IAS unites global YPO members with industry innovators, entrepreneurs and business leaders to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region. This year, IAS will focus on the theme of "Reshuffling the Deck," examining the drivers behind change and the need for agility, adaptability and foresight as businesses confront an uncertain business environment.

For two days, attendees will learn about the opportunities offered by ASEAN region, while acknowledging the challenges business leaders face as they "reshuffle" their business models, value propositions and organization structures to remain competitive.

The planning committee, led by YPO Singapore members Walter Blocker of the Vietnam Trade Alliance and Michael Zacka of Tetra Pak Asia, noted, "The Insights ASEAN Summit is a valuable platform for delivering education, connections, resources and insights for innovative leaders who are poised to succeed in this new economic community."

Michael Vaknin, Chief Markets Economist for J.P. Morgan Private Bank based in the United States, will be one of the key international resource speakers to kick off the summit.

The summit will feature influential speakers, including:

- Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz, Former Minister of International Trade and Industry, Government of Malaysia and Chairman, AirAsia X, Malaysia
- Jonathan Asherson, Regional Director, ASEAN and Pacific, Rolls Royce, Singapore
- Karl Morris, Executive Chairman, Ord Minnett, Australia
- Dr. Anish Shah, Group President (Strategy), Mahindra Group, India
- Dave West, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Asia Pacific and Japan, Cisco, Singapore
- Harjit Gill, former CEO, ASEAN Pacific Philips

The event will also explore ASEAN issues, focusing on topics ranging from the role of economic communities and retaining talent in the region to environment sustainability and the disruptive power of technology.

Bringing exclusive value to YPO members and non-member business leaders, J.P. Morgan will be providing support for IAS this year, serving to enhance, educate and generate new opportunities for business leaders to create a more sustainable ASEAN economy.
