Responsive and Responsible Leadership: Engineering Governance

In 2017, the World Economic Forum’s theme will be Responsive Leadership. Under this, one of the core initiatives that will be focused on is Shaping the Future of Digital Economy & Society. Technology has the potential to propel societies forward, enable innovative business models and help governments address legitimate policy concerns. So how can private-public collaboration realize technology’s potential to benefit humankind? Join us for the third Global Shapers Speaker Series with YB Steven Sim who will be sharing his thoughts on responsive and responsible leadership, how he engages his constituents, and how we can build a culture of good governance.
