To that end, we are appealing to you to come back to Singapore or Fontainebleau to join us in-person or via Skype as various important stakeholders who have tough questions to ask the young international management teams.

You may have participated in the past, for which we are grateful, and we’d love to invite you back! You weren’t able to participate last time, so we hope we can include you this time around!

If we never heard from you before, here is this interesting chance to engage the 18Ds and we’d like to invite you to participate! Sign up here!

“Business as a Force for Good” Award Launched in Singapore

In the years following World War II, Georges Doriot came up with the idea that the world needed a new kind of educational institution—one that united people, embraced diversity, and leveraged business to rebuild nations and promote peace. He envisioned an institution that could make a meaningful contribution to society.

That institution, of course, was INSEAD. And in the decades since its founding in 1957, our school has never wavered from that vision. Our belief in using business as a force for good has come to define who we are, what we stand for and how we conduct ourselves in the world.

The INSEAD National Alumni Association Singapore and the INSEAD Alumni Fund are proud to launch Singapore’s “Business as a Force for Good” Award.

What is the Award about?

The award will recognise businesses in Singapore who have demonstrated thought-leadership with respect to “Business as a Force for Good”, have a vision, mission statement and strategy clearly demonstrating their commitment, have developed corporate social responsibility best practices and have achieved remarkable economical results and meaningful societal impact.

The award will be presented during the INSEAD NAA Singapore AGM 2019, which will be hosted on 14 March 2019 in Singapore, in presence of Mr. Ilian Mihov, Dean of INSEAD.

Top nominees and the award winner will gain visibility through various PR activities and social media articles sharing details about the award and their company’s accomplishments.

What is the selection criteria?

A jury made of business leaders from various industries will identify the award winner. Selections will be based on the positive impact the organisation has had on society through its corporate social responsibility program or its core business activities.

How can you participate?

Please simply send us the name of either your company or a company that you know well, deserving to be nominated. We will need the name of a representative (yourself or another contact person who is an INSEAD alumnus) whom the selection committee will contact for further details.  Nominations must be received no later than 30 November 2018.

The “Business as a Force for Good” Award is a wonderful opportunity to recognise best practices, to give visibility to deserving companies and to promote INSEAD’s mission. We are very much looking forward to hearing from you soon.
