“The past 23 months have led to dramatic shifts in the way organisations operate,” said Sammartino. “In a climate of constant disruptions, effective leaders have to embrace and thrive within uncertainty, possessing the foresight to transform their organisation to capitalise on new business growth.

“I hope those attending AIME will come out of the Knowledge Program with actionable insights that will help them take their business to the next level.”

AIME event director Silke Calder said: “AIME’s top priority is to put on a quality and thought-provoking show, especially when it comes to the Knowledge Program. This year is no exception.

“Our line-up of speakers will undoubtedly excite and motivate attendees. With innovators and thought leaders from myriad industries sharing their insights first-hand, attendees are encouraged to actively participate in the breakout sessions and get the most out of our speakers’ brilliant minds.”

PCMA managing director for Asia Pacific, Florence Chua, said: “PCMA is very excited to partner with AIME in curating this much-awaited opportunity to reconvene the community for the human connections we dearly missed.

“The Knowledge Program will deliver a balance of future-ready thinking, priceless peer-sharing and focused discussions around business and social responsibility of our community. I am cautiously optimistic we, as an industry, are ready to build momentum for 2022. Our time is now.”
