In September 2016, representatives from BraveGen™ were privileged to participate in the CSR and Social Innovators Forum 2016. Our CEO and founder Chris Lindley, Will Smith our Senior Account Executive and Francis Xaviour Joe, our ASEAN Regional Manager attended the Forum as exhibitors.
Some of the highlights of the forum for us included an excellent panel discussion on Mindful Collaboration: People, Planet, Profits. Of particular interest during this panel was Ms Grace Fu, Minister, Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth for Singapore and Greg Casagrande, the founder of South Pacific Business Development Microfinance Network who discussed the effectiveness of microfinancing.
We appreciated the opportunity to sit in on the discussions and to hear the innovation happening in Singapore and the wider Asia-Pacific region around sustainability. It is clear to us that the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are clearly becoming a focus for many Singapore businesses.
We look forward to future visits to Singapore and to our continued association with the Global Compact Network Singapore. Click here for more information on the CSR and Social Innovators Forum.
