at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Centered and Entrepreneurial Leadership


A Talk by Dr. Loretta Chen, Director, Creative and Business Development of The Activation Group, Singapore

Wednesday, April 1, 2015
12:00 – 1:30pm

Tokioka Room, Moore Hall 319

Most young graduates start careers in business and other professions with the same level of intelligence, education, and commitment. Yet, why do some reach the upper echelons of their career goals and many do not? With this question in mind, Dr. Chen’s talk is designed to help us understand what drives and sustains successful leaders. This is aimed at helping younger leaders navigate the paths to leadership and, at the same time, to learn how organizations can get the best out of this talented, youthful, and driven-to succeed group. This new approach to leadership can help young graduates become more self-confident and effective business leaders.
