Speaker Event: Get Ready for the “Change or Die” Decade into 2030

We are pleased to have Mr. Ken Lee, Founder and CEO of Belleview Research to speak to our alumni. Ken will give share some insights for what we may do to embrace changes and cope with the upcoming challenges for the decade into 2030.

Among the mega trends that are reshaping the world, how do we distinguish the hype from the real ones? Where do we see lots of invested capital being destroyed? What is the biggest risk for the next decade leading to 2030?

The presentation aims to address the above questions and share some actionable ideas on what we - as investors, business owners, senior executives and parents - can do to embrace changes and cope with the upcoming challenges.
