EVENTS

From panel discussions to networking dinners, AKIN ASIA holds events that celebrate, connect and inspire professionals in Bangkok and across Southeast Asia. We seek out industry leaders to share their experience with our audiences and contribute to workshops, forums and discussions.

Throughout 2017 AKIN ASIA will be running a series of Celebrating Women panel discussions focussed across a variety of industries. The aim of these discussions is to learn from the experience of female leaders, celebrate the work they are doing and create a space to network and meet new people in the field. Men are most welcome to attend and we value your input in these discussions!

Every organisation has patterns that have been built into daily habits over many  years. As we all know- change can be hard even though that change may be holding us back from achieving more. The complexity of conquering change increases when many people are involved in an organisation trying to lead that revolution. Leading change is complex and multifaceted and to do so successfully often requires starting small before growing big.
