Announcing the IPWS Leadership Summit 2017


We are excited to announce the IPWS Leadership Summit will return this year, and YOU’RE INVITED!

IPWS is proud to bring you a professional & personal development experience like no other in Shanghai! You will meet and network with China’s top leaders at the IPWS Leadership Summit 2017, featuring dynamic speakers and innovative workshops exploring this year’s theme: Understanding Power & Leadership: A Roadmap to Success.

And just like last year, the IPWS Leadership Summit will also feature the Women Leadership Awards!

What is a Leadership Summit?

As we know from last year’s inaugural Leadership Summit, this event will be a meeting of leaders and influencers from different walks of life, with the aim to celebrate the role models in Business, Innovation, Entrepreneurial & Social Contribution

The program will continue to be rich in active conferencing, engaging & inspiring speakers addressing the theme of power, leadership and making a positive impact in their life and the world, all while hearing about the finalists of the Women Leadership Awards and their stories.

What is the theme?

“Understanding Power & Leadership: A Road Map to Success”.

IPWS Board of Directors decided to curate the Summit agenda around this theme following on from last year’s roadmap of “Embracing the Changing Nature of Leadership”. On the global stage, we’ve seen the United Nations highlight gender equality & women’s empowerment as one of the ’17 Goals to Transform Our World’ and many researchers pointing out Gender & Corporate Social Responsibilities is a matter of sustainability. This June, IPWS will bring together the best thinkers & leaders in our community to continue these discussions. Through a carefully curated program, the IPWS Leadership Summit will provide opportunities to participate to learn more of how power is ultimately about making a (positive) difference in the world. How can we understand power and leadership for ourselves and others? What choices can we make now to affect our future and what skills should we rely on and what skills should we grow as we head towards becoming the leaders of tomorrow? How can you seize POWER by identifying your strength, understanding your barriers and persistently taking it?

Who will be there?

Business Leaders, IPWS exisiting community and anyone else keen to join this unique opportunity, the Women Leadership Awards 2017 Finalist and the WLA Jury Panel. The WLA recognises professional women who have emerged as leaders in their field. As leaders, these inspiring women (and men) have made a marked difference in our communities and have forged paths for others to follow. You’ll meet friends and colleagues from within the IPWS community existing & new, chat with the top professional men and women in Shanghai, connect with our IPWS sponsors & partners and be inspired with personal & professional development coaches and some fun workshop professionals!

Why should I come along?

You’ll have a professional & personal development experience like no other in Shanghai. IPWS will host an afternoon of innovative & insightful workshops and presentations, while giving you a chance to rub shoulders with the best Leaders of our community. Throughout the program, we’ll honour & celebrate the winners of the Women Leadership Awards 2017. And we’ll throw you an After Party for some great & relaxed networking on the rooftop!
