Bangkok, 6 April 2016 – This year’s Shape the World Conference 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand is themed “How to redesign your business for sustainable growth”. It is aimed to help business leaders in the country think about how they can shape the region’s future by building companies that are drivers of innovation through business design.
The half-day conference will be organised by Consulus Jarken on April 21st, 2016 at S31 Hotel, Sukhumvit, Bangkok.
Despite the global economic slowdown and the plunge in oil price, the establishment of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) offers new opportunities for Thai firms to expand aggressively across borders. However, are their organisational models ready for this?
The conference this year is looking at the pressing challenges that companies are facing in Thailand now, which is not the lack of ideas or technology, but the ability to systemically profit from the insights that are being generated on a daily basis. The conference advocates that companies rethink their business and leadership models to be more relevant to an age of incredible expansion of ideas and innovation.
Since 2005, Shape the World Conference serves as a platform for Asian leaders to review their business models and seek to build stronger brands so as to make a difference for Asia.
Lawrence Chong, CEO of Consulus, said, “Strong Asian companies with innovative models and adaptive organisational development are a secure way to contribute to the developmental needs of this region.”
Moreover, Kuldej Sinthawanarong, Managing Director of JARKEN Group of Companies, the co-organiser of this event, also remarked, “We believe that the Conference this year themed ‘How to redesign your business for sustainable growth’ under the concept of ‘Business Design’, would help Thai entrepreneurs, business owners and the upper-class executives of homegrown companies, redesign their business models and organisational structures in order to enhance their competitive advantage, overcome any potential crises caused by changes inside and outside of the company, and to provide a strong foundation for sustainable business expansion.”
Mr Chong, Mr Sinthawanarong together with Mr. Kreingkrai Kanjanapokin, CEO of Index Creative Village, will join the panel discussion to share on how Thai companies can steer towards an innovative culture and the possible challenges they need to prepare for.
