CONFERENCE PROGRAM

TEAR DOWN, RETHINK, REBUILD ASIA

These are words fit for a revolution, and perhaps at this stage, a revolution is exactly what we need! We must radically rethink our entire system. The way we do business, the way we interact, our values and even our individual and collective aspirations. Let’s rebuild with compassion. Create systems that leave nobody behind, that give back more than they take, and are in balance and in harmony with nature, who has supported life on our planet for more than 3.5 Billion years. These are monumental tasks standing before us. But we must start now. To achieve a better world we need fearless creators, brave leaders, and we need to connect. Together we can change the world, each other and ourselves. Join GTF Connect Singapore and become part of the revolution.
