GBA Members for Members+ workshop: Sustainability Matters

HCMC, 3 November 2022 – The ‘GBA Members for Members+’ participative workshop attracted around 40 members at the modern Sonatus Building. “Sustainability Matters” – It’s a Hot Topics of great Interest to the Business Communities, especially to Industry, and to Politics, GBA has successfully addressed “Sustainability” in an innovative, focused, new format.

Four brief Keynote-Presentations set the stage, provided a wealth of information and created the basis for valuable discussions and exchanges, across participants coming from a diverse range of business backgrounds – mostly from high-tech industries and selected service providers. The top quality “Impulse Presentations” offered a wealth of facts and insights to what leading firms are actually doing to embrace to “Sustainability as a Business Fundamental” – and how to finance the for sure more expensive long-term thinking / action.

The new format – roundtable discussions at the core of the event – was warmly received; of course, it took time for the participants to familiarize themselves with an active, participative role.

Several factors contributed to the success of this experiment: the quality of the Impulse Presentations by renowned business leaders and experts, the well-orchestrated and prepared event team, the venue itself, and especially the much-interested guests following our invitation.

Thank you all for making the “GBA Members for Members” workshop series of the year 2022 a tremendous success. Stay tuned with us for more informative workshops to come in 2023!
