We live in the Asian Century and western organisations face unique challenges, threats and opportunities. With the flow of people, capital and resources from China, India and South East Asia into every corner of our society, now is the time for dynamic, progressive and ambitious organisations to embrace the benefits of diversification, which include:
- Boosting creativity, diversity and innovation – fresh perspectives lead to fresh ideas which leads to new revenue streams
- Doing business with Asia – presenting a multicultural ‘face’ to marketing, sales and client relationships
- Increasing productivity and profitability – organisations with cultures that promote diversity, inclusion and collaboration get better results
Keynote Speaker, David Thomas, has lived and worked in Asia Pacific for the past 30 years. He brings unique insights to this topic from his role as an adviser and thought leader to Australian and Asian business leaders seeking to embrace multiculturalism and maximise their opportunities in the region.
