A Common Purpose Leadership Programme for ASEAN Leaders

The ASEAN Leaders Programme brings together senior leaders from the ASEAN region —from all sectors and walks of life—onto a common platform where they work together to address a common challenge. In the process they build strong connections, share knowledge and develop the Cultural Intelligence required to grow ASEAN’s cities and realise the potential of the ASEAN Community.

The programme is run by Common Purpose, an international leadership development organization, in partnership with the ASEAN Foundation and is supported by GE and other key stakeholders in the region, including the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

The programme takes place in two parts delivered in different locations, with a choice of locale for the Part 2.

Part 1: Singapore (3 – 7 July 2017)
Part 2: Choice of: Manila, Philippines (5 – 8 Sept 2017); or: Pune, India (24 – 27 Oct 2017)

The challenge for the 2017 programme is: 'What makes a city Smart?'

“I really didn’t know what to expect, but after attending the programme, I must say it is not like any other I have attended before. All the programmes I have attended were at Government level. This one was at the level of people to people as opposed to Govt to Govt. It surprised me, and was much needed, too.”
(Syahira Hamidon, Head of Entrepreneurship & Public Private Research Network,
Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia)

“Being an active professional in the ASEAN Integration agenda, the Leadership Program helped me look at ASEAN from a higher yet deeper perspective. As my job at the PPP Center affords me direct participation in the ongoing formal dialogues on the ASEAN Connectivity Master Plan 2025*, the Programme made me more confident in contributing to these dialogues.”
