AmCham Shanghai's Education Committee and HR Committee are pleased to jointly hold a discussion of leadership development from 12pm-1:45pm, June 19th.

The leadership challenge in China is evolving as rapidly as the macroeconomic environment overall. But even though training entities and HR departments love to talk about 'leadership development,' is it a real and achievable mission, or just corporate jargon? How can we know? What if anything can really help leaders to develop here, whether they be local or foreign, to rise to the challenge of a globalizing China and its increasing interactions with the rest of the world?

Join us to hear from the following three leading industry experts:

  • Tony Ling, CHO at OYO, will discuss 'what organizations are doing internally to develop stronger leaders – corporate universities, internal metrics/KPIs/evaluations'.
  • Brian Sun, Senior Manager of PwC's major learning initiatives You Plus, will talk on 'how consultancies like PwC are developing their own leaders as well as supporting leadership development for their clients'.
  • John Van Fleet, representing the Antai College's executive education initiative, will share 'how business schools help the corporate sector develop leaders (other than with degree programs such as MBA)'.
