About this Event

How do you define success? What does being a leader mean to you?

Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that leadership is all about power and status. However, the key to being a good leader is understanding that it isn't about you but to empower those around you.

In this webinar, we are privileged to be joined by one of IBM's most dynamic senior executives Matthew Glitzer from Singapore where he will share with us his leadership philosophies, and dispense wisdom that he has galvanised over his extensive global career.
