The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) is to host its first ASEAN Global Leadership Programme (AGLP) in March 2019, bringing a group of senior leaders from the private and public sectors for a week of high-level debate, discussion and reflection on leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation.
The ASEAN region is one of the sources of major growth in the global economy, increasingly interconnected with China, the US, Australia, and Europe, and as such its leaders are playing a significant role on the world stage. To help inform, encourage and inspire senior colleagues from the ASEAN region, LSE is delighted to host the AGLP for the first time on its central London campus.
This initiative forms part of a series of pioneering executive education programmes launched by the regional management consulting firm SRW&Co. over a decade ago which have been delivered in top universities and business schools around the world ever since.
"We are particularly pleased to be collaborating with SRW&Co. for the first time to host the AGLP. Myself and colleagues are frequent visitors to ASEAN countries and LSE has thousands of alumni in across the region, so we understand first-hand about the demands that modern ventures face and, most importantly, what these demands pose on leaders in an age of constant and rapid change," says Director of Global Markets in LSE Custom Programmes, Adam Austerfield.
Senior members of LSE faculty and Programme Academic Directors, Professor Emeritus Mick Cox, Co-Director of LSE IDEAS, and Prof Saul Estrin from the Department of Management, are looking forward to welcoming and working with the AGLP participants to facilitate exchange of knowledge and experience with LSE faculty, high-calibre guest speakers and senior expert practitioners as well as among the programme participants.
"This customised executive education programme creates a high-impact platform for contemporary leaders. The opportunity to learn about, analyse and discuss best international practices in leadership, entrepreneurship, and innovation across various sectors will be truly unique. Interaction and engagement in an intellectually rich format in and out of the classroom are key to this programme, and together with substantial networking opportunities will form part of the journey to help advance senior colleagues from the ASEAN region as leaders in the 21st century," they explain.
Chairman and partner of SRW&Co., Daniel Wong, concludes: "The AGLP with LSE is the 19th edition of our AGLP series since its inception in 2009. Working closely with our global business school partners, we have been raising the bar in both the design and delivery of our flagship programme over the past 10 years. The fact that we are able to sustain the programme over the past decade affirms the recognition of the AGLP as a signature leadership development programme in the ASEAN region. In collaboration with LSE, we look forward to a successful run of the edition in March 2019."
