Different Ways of Giving Back - How Do They Do It?
"It is more difficult to give money away intelligently than to earn it in the first place." - Andrew Carnegie
How can you contribute to our society by leveraging your skills? How do you measure the effectiveness and sustainability of your contribution? Whether it's time or money, the challenge is finding the most impactful way to make a difference in the causes we are passionate for.
Join us for an engaging dialogue with a panel consisting of the chairman of a listed company and philanthropist, the managing partner of a leading consulting firm, a NGO founder with a full-time job, an ex-investment banker leveraging financial knowledge for social good, and a social entrepreneur as we explore the approaches they had taken to give back and the differences they have made!
