Bearing the theme “Community Heroes”, the session featured four reputable achievers in Asia’s business events industry, specifically Ms. Ailynn Seah (Vice President of Sales – MIC & Association, Marina Bay Sands Singapore), Mr. Arrut Navaraj, (Managing Director, Suan Sampran), Ms. Patcharaun Peamsomboon (Regional MICE Manager, Discova) and Ms. Nusheena Mohd Shahimi (Membership Development Executive Asia Pacific, ICCA).
The quartet each shared their personal stories of how they – through their organisations and personal efforts – have been serving as positive agents of change within their own respective communities, whether advocating for sustainable initiatives or setting the cornerstone for giving back to local communities through charity and volunteering. The speakers’ inspirational personal stories hammered home the message that community support is not just the responsibility of moneyed corporations, but also everyone’s responsibility – that we are the empowered present, everyone can be an agent of change to create the world we want to live in.
ICCA-TTG Passionate Breakfast made its debut at IT&CMA 2018. Presented by ICCA and TTGmice, this new event is crafted out of a desire shared by both partners to provide a platform for Business Events (BE) industry peers to share inspirational stories on personal and professional growth. It seeks to spotlight the BE community and issues that matter most to them, with the first edition staged last year focusing on the progress women have made in the industry.
IT&CMA, an ICCA Supported Show, is scheduled to take place on 22 – 24 September 2020 in Bangkok, Thailand.
