Globe Business’ Leadership Innovation Forum Challenges Philippine Enterprises to Create a Positive Societal Impact
Globe Business, the enterprise arm of Globe, once again gathers the country's top business and enterprise leaders for a day of insightful learning, discussion, and sharing of best practices on how leadership innovation and digital transformation can help sustain a company's competitiveness and relevance in today's ever-changing landscape.
This year's Leadership Innovation Forum (Lead-In) with the theme “Catalyst: Ignite Your Influence”, is Globe Business' way of challenging its partners and clients to lead its workforce to go beyond business goals. It aspires to instill the importance of creating a positive societal impact and leave a lasting legacy for years to come.
“The theme Catalyst greatly resonates with the efforts that we do at Globe Business,” said Peter Maquera, Globe Business Senior Vice President. “We have always aimed to influence our partners and clients to start looking beyond their own operations and see how their efforts can positively impact those around them and the society as a whole.”
Lead-In started with “finding a bigger purpose” for businesses in 2016 which then led to “acting on the purpose” of business the following year. Last year, Globe Business explored what it means to build an innovative and positive company culture—to create an “internal impact” or spark a cultural revolution in all of the businesses.
Maquera adds: ”We could not be more ecstatic to see how our journey, which started in 2016, has come to full fruition. We started to help Phillippine enterprises by finding and acting on their purpose, then it led to harnessing the power of company culture, and now, we influence them to look beyond so that they can create an impact beyond the walls of the enterprise. It truly has come full circle.”
Katie Krukiel, Lead-In 2019 Keynote Speaker, talks about “Bridging Business With Social Good” where she shares insights from her experiences that she has gained through the years of working with the private and public sector, non-profits, United Nations, and Civil Society. Krukiel is an entrepreneur, impact-maker, and Former Microsoft Global Director of Strategic Partnerships.
Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, Chairman and CEO of Ayala Corporation, and Benjie Yap, Chairman and CEO of Unilever Philippines, also shared experiences and best practices on how their companies have created a positive societal impact.
Now in its 10th year, the event urges enterprises to seize the opportunity and create a bigger impact, and contribute to the development of the country by constantly evolving in their respective industries. It also pushes companies to be responsive and adaptive in the challenging, fast, and unpredictable circumstances that they face today.
