The Management Association of the Philippines will hold its 9th MAP International CEO Conference on September 13 at the Makati Shangri-La.
MAP Conference committee chair Donald Lim announced that this year’s theme “Fast, Flat and Free: Leading in the new convergent world will feature lessons to be learned—from experiences, from relationships—and insights that many classrooms will fail to capture because reality is the crucible that will ultimately shape the character of the organization.”
MAP Conference committee vice chair JP Orbeta added that the event “is about enduring companies continuing time-tested practices made stronger by the challenges they faced. It is also about the creativity and imagination that made new companies sail unexplored seas, triumphed and found new management treasures along the way. Today they thrive, and MAP provides an opportunity for business leaders (and aspiring ones) to relive and share the journey.”
