Florence Chua, PCMA Managing Director of APAC, said the digital experience is built upon the success and learnings PCMA has had with their hybrid events.

“Convening Leaders 2022 is our pinnacle event, combining our experience and learnings from this year. It’s a chance for anyone, anywhere, to participate and get the latest knowledge and thinking around common problems, from marketing and sales strategies, to building team confidence and sustainability.

“We have a great line-up of world-class speakers who will challenge us to take on new perspectives and look at 2022 with fresh eyes.

“Convening Leaders is a high-level thinking event that makes us question, brainstorm and discuss the current pain points, it focuses on growth possibilities, so that we all may be better leaders for our industry and our organisations. I would encourage the APAC community to be part of Convening Leaders via the digital experience,” said Ms Chua.

Along with the mainstage speakers, digital attendees will get access to ‘Conversation Starters’, exclusive experience interviews with thought leaders and facilitated discussions on hot industry topics, breakout opportunities, plus games, happy hours, and behind the scenes sneak peeks.

Session recordings will be available for a limited time following Convening Leaders.
