Dear CEIBS Friends,

We cordially invite you to attend a CEIBS Executive Forum on January 11, 2018, with Chris Lee, Senior Vice President and President of Asia Pacific for Medtronic, who will give a lecture titled “Preparing to be a Global Leader: A Few Things that the School will not Teach You”.

As multinational companies become more diverse, the path for Asian talents towards a seat on the global management team has never been so wide open. Today, even at some iconic multinational firms with a strong western heritage, management professionals born and raised in Asia hold the CEO position, which just a decade ago was unimaginable.

How can experienced local senior managers with global C-suite ambitions better prepare themselves to grab these leadership opportunities in terms of both skill set and mind-set? How should early-career executives begin laying the groundwork to be able to reach this long-term objective?

Chris Lee, Senior Vice President and President of Asia Pacific for Medtronic, the world’s largest medical technology company, is both passionate and well-qualified to answer these questions. Born and raised in Korea, Chris’ globe-trotting career has spanned 10 countries and regions; he has served in the upper executive ranks at several Fortune 500 firms. More importantly, he has spent most of the past two decades as a China-based regional head, which has provided him with great first-hand insights on Chinese talent development.

Please join us for a lively discussion with Chris Lee of Medtronic on January 11, 2018. In his lecture, he will share his personal journey of how he, an Asia-born and raised executive, has risen through the ranks in organizations traditionally dominated by westerners. He will also provide advice for young talents who want to pursue a global career path.
