The first wave of Generation Z is graduating and entering the workplace, and they are more tech savvy, entrepreneurial and self-reliant than any generation before. How will they transform the workplace and how do businesses need to change to engage this group? All parents and adults also need to ask themselves how they can prepare even younger generations for future success, when an estimated 65% of jobs our children will have do not yet exist today.

Join this free lunchtime panel discussion to meet Malcolm Kay (Asia’s most experienced IB educator and Superintendent at Stamford American School), Michelle Sun (Forbes’ 30 Under 30 and Founder of First Code Academy), Paul Smith (Head of MUN at the Kelly Yang Project) and Valerie Koo (APAC Manager of School Choice International) to discover how the education and business scene are being transformed by modern technologies.

Complimentary to members, non-members are also welcomed. Register now!
