About the event

This generation of young people are the most informed, connected and engaged the world has ever seen. With the complex challenges affecting Indonesia and the wider region, exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic, this young demographic will accept nothing other than effective leadership and tangible action.

As young people enter the workforce, they are hungry for opportunities to learn, contribute and lift others alongside them to create a positive impact. Rising leaders require motivation and vision in order to build their careers, pursue the causes they are passionate about, and equip themselves with the resilience necessary to embrace the future with optimism. With this event, we will showcase what is possible and what real leadership looks like,

About the series

Every corner of the world has been touched by this pandemic unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. As it stands, the socioeconomic outlook is uncertain and the future is challenging as millions have experienced some sort of displacement in their professional and personal lives.

But as the world begins to adjust to COVID-19 and move forward, we need to ensure the world’s workforce is ready to rebuild with optimism and lead with resilience. We must work towards creating a more sustainable future, and that requires each and every one of us to play our part.

As part of the ‘Building Resilience’ Series, we will bring you insight and experience from young leaders and experts that will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to lead through this uncertain time.

Kate served as Chairman of the Havas group from 2006 to 2015 and as Global President from 2013. Working mainly in global roles, Kate became convinced of the importance of the roles of global institutions and global businesses in the certainty that what unites people is greater than geographical distance and national distinctions.

Having grown up in apartheid South Africa, Kate’s world view is defined by having witnessed the creation of its new way of life. Awed by the leadership of Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Kate believes in the limitless possibilities a sense of shared humanity can create.
