Leadership Energy Summit Asia Kuala Lumpur 2016

The Leadership Energy Summit Asia (LESA) is Asia’s foremost leadership conference.
It brings together courageous leaders, high-profile business people and cutting-edge entrepreneurs to overturn conventional thinking and explore the real source of transformative leadership.

“Leadership is not just about competencies, positions or titles. It is a noble choice to take up the struggle towards creating a better future. You will face immense odds and insurmountable obstacles in your quest to challenge the status quo – and this requires extraordinary energy. At the Leadership Energy Summit Asia, participants will immerse themselves in understanding just what leadership energy is; see it in action as it powers and drives renowned speakers; and then make the important decision of whether they want to take that giant leap into true leadership. Additionally, it is also a platform to recognise everyday people who have demonstrated outstanding leadership energy that has driven them to create incredible impact in their companies, communities and countries.”

2017 theme — Open Source Leadership

The world’s largest taxi company owns no cars, and employs no drivers directly. The world’s largest hotel service owns no properties and employs no housekeeping or room service staff. All communications have gone digital and almost everything we know as normal has changed dramatically. Business-as-usual is a thing of the past. Free and abundant information, 24/7 connectivity, and the empowerment of everyone has transformed companies into open-source organisations—and every leader must adapt to succeed.

The theme of this year – Open Source Leadership is an interactive exchange that will redefine the meaning of transformative leadership today – one that is much more suited to today’s uber-connected and uber-populated age.
