FBC corporate member Aalto Executive Education Academy event -Aalto Executive Summit
Aalto EE is giving an opportunity for the FBC members and other Nordic chamber members (DABS, NBAS, SwedCham) to attend Aalto Executive Summit on August 19-23 in Singapore. Summit is an annual global event that brings participants from around the world for a week of leadership content, learning and networking. The Summit is about engaging with world-class speakers, developing your personal leadership potential, and meeting business leaders. In Aalto Executive Summit 2019 we will be investigating the theme of Politics of Business from various levels and perspectives. These include how economic systems and political uncertainty influence business and society, how power is negotiated and distributed in complex ecosystems and organizations, and how leaders can personally get better at influencing those around them. For further information, fees and registration, please contact Minna Hyväri.

EuroCham events June 25: Enhancing Business Values and Performances through Emerging CSR Best Practices in Asia. Climate change, environmental sustainability and consumer preference for green products are key factors driving organisations to meet new requirements and targets. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes, UN Sustainable Development Goals, green procurement, supplier criteria, carbon footprint disclosure, tax on carbon emissions, are today placed at the heart of all corporations. Ability to implement these green KPI’s and meet these requirements would boost the company’s performances. More information and registration.
