11 November 2014: Hong Kong

Agenda Overview

Our 2014 MPW theme is “The New Connected Leadership.” As MPW has become a community—where women leaders return to our events year after year, and urge others to attend—the “connected” part is obvious. These women leaders make valuable connections, often leading to new discoveries and endeavors: new careers, board positions, companies to start and/or invest in, new partners and friends. This New Connected Leadership also means digital connectedness—how you connect to your customers, to your employees—how to thrive in an increasingly connected world.

In Hong Kong, we will concentrate on four subject areas:

• Technology and Innovation
• Global Risks and Opportunities, including trade, finance, the environment, and geopolitical risks.
• Management, including leadership, boards, career development, the role of the CFO, and family business
• The Future of Asia
