Revisit Highlights from Singapore

Thank you to all of our Forum attendees, speakers, and sponsors!

Three years ago, the world changed — borders closed and events were delayed, including the Singapore Global Forum. We had no idea that it would take three years to bring the Wharton family back together.

Thank you for attending the Wharton Global Forum badge

“Digital payments are delivering solutions for all kinds of consumers in all kinds of markets. In the West, they are offering security and convenience. In emerging markets, they are helping drive financial inclusion for billions of people.”

Anderson Tanoto, W'11 speaking

Anderson Tanoto, W’11
Managing Director and Member of Executive Management Board, RGE

“Moving ahead, I think all business leaders have to be cautious and aware that we need to keep evolving with the workforce requirements. I always say our job as business leaders is to make the office a little more like home and to make it convenient to work from home, as well. So this blending of work and home and work and play, I think is the future of work, not only for RGE, but for all the other companies in the world.”

Professor Witold (Vit) Henisz Speaking

Witold (Vit) Henisz
Vice Dean and Faculty Director, ESG Initiative, The Wharton School

“Investors here in Asia, while they don’t have access to the same ESG data, they are doing the hard work of ESG integration on their own, which is what we are advocating for in the ESG Initiative and it’s been affirming to see.”
