Lawyer and thought leader, Mai Chen explains how to grow your ability to adapt, including harnessing migrant experiences living, working and visiting abroad, and how to keep yourself match fit in adapting by incentivising yourself to ‘run faster’. Mai will also speak on the importance of building cultural intelligence given the ‘superdiversity’ status of Auckland city and lay down some challenges on how to engage with this unique workforce and consumer base.

Authentic Leadership: We live in a fast moving world of powerful social media platforms and influencers, along with increasing corporate virtue signalling and greenwashing.
