“The conference showed that the future of social impact is not confined to a single path but rather, has the capabilities to be morphed into whatever people make of it. There are so many opportunities and as long as people are passionate and willing to make an effort, change can be made.

The insightful and actionable knowledge I gained in the two days of the Social Impact Summit will help me in my future as a professional leader. The thoughts, lessons and stories I heard have provided me with lots to reflect upon and has inspired me to continue to be an advocate of issues on responsible leadership and social impact.”
