This call to action is called the UN Sustainable Development Goals, or also known as Global Goals. The Global Goals consists of 17 areas that focuses on social, economic and environmental sustainability. These areas range from ending poverty to reducing inequality to quality education, responsible consumption and not forgetting climate action. However, sustainable development issues in Asia differ from other continents. Asia has the largest middle class population compared to other continents and the numbers are rising. Greater spending power leads to consuming more resources than what is available and faster than what the earth can provide or replenish. If action is not taken soon, we will no longer live in a world that is able to sustain human life. Each continent, each country, each person needs to do its part in achieving these goals. We in Asia are in a unique position to take the lead in solving many of these sustainability problems – and we don’t have much choice!  What can individuals and organisations do to create a sustainable world?

It could be joy, fear, anger and quite often stress. It is something we handle every single day of our lives, in our online and offline shopping, in paying our bills to run our homes.

More about Kay Vasey About this Episode  When we think of art… artists, performers, musicians come to mind. Art is a product of expression. Its purpose is to make sense of our reality or to manifest the vision of the artist.  When we think of technology… computers, smartphones and our modern gadgetry come to mind. Technology is invented to help solve our problems such as our ability to communicate, to travel, to improve healthcare and much more. Art and Technology can seem so far apart, as if they can never be friends. But can they? What happens when we intersect art and technology? When we mesh both together, can we harness this combination for the greater good?
Some people say that there is no such thing as coincidence and that everything happens for a reason. Research in quantum physics, biology, and psychology shows that we can connect with fields of energy that are literally “answers from the universe”. It may seem like a coincidence, but is it really? For a leader, harnessing synchronicity can be a mighty challenge but it can also be a great advantage. So what is synchronicity? How can it support or hinder leadership? Joining us is Dr Philip Merry, who specialises in helping organisations build High Performing Multi-Cultural Global Teams, and has over 30 years experience in this area as a trainer, speaker and coach with leading global organisations in 59 countries on 6 continents.

Conflict is often feared and is avoided. It is usually seen as a bad thing to occur in the workplace.  But when disagreements are suppressed or swept aside, we lose passion and interest. A good fight deepens relationships and creates superior outcomes.  A bad conflict does the opposite. So how can we fight well? Joining us is Serene Seng, a professional speaker, executive coach and host of the YouTube Channel “The Serene View”.
Authenticity is when a person’s actions are aligned with their beliefs and desires. By being authentic, we can create more trusting and meaningful relationships. Although, with external pressures of our society and the media, it is difficult to stay true to yourself. It is even more difficult to be authentic online. Being authentic online is not as easy as taking selfies, sharing articles, heart-felt quotes or having a professional profile taken. This is because the online persona can be completely different from the person you meet in person.   How can we show our authentic self online? Joining us is Genecia Alluora, former Miss Singapore and  Founder of Soul Rich Woman, the #1 female entrepreneur network in Southeast Asia that connects more than 12,000 women across the region, with presence in 7 countries including Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia.
In today’s digital age, the pace of change is faster than ever. The impact of the 4th Industrial Revolution is affecting literally every possible sector and industry. It has resulted in job displacements and involuntary unemployment. The Industrial revolution has altered, and will be altering the nature of work.  How can individuals, organisations and the world cope with this imminent force of change? What makes us vulnerable? What can we do to ride this wave of change to stay relevant and continuously advance ourselves? Joining us is Dr Koh Tat Suan, an entrepreneur and CEO of , a consultancy services focused on workforce development and lifelong learning.  Check out the episode here http://bit.ly/2wS6smN

The banking and finance industry is a very complicated and intricate space. In rural parts of India, where resources are limited and are located far away from bustling cities-- it’s challenging for women to save and get financial support with their hard earned money. Many of these women want a safe place to put their money. This is for emergencies but mostly to build a better future for themselves and their families.  These women rose up to the challenges of India’s caste system by paving the way and fighting for their rights. After years of challenges… The Mann Deshi Bank was founded. The Mann Deshi Bank provides women with the business and financial knowledge, skills and support necessary to give them more control of their lives. What were the challenges these women from rural India have gone through to attain financial literacy? How did they prevail over the challenges of discrimination?  We have the privilege to speak to Chetna Sinha is the founder of the Mann Deshi Bank - India’s largest rural bank - that helps rural women achieve their dreams.

Through the years, we are seeing more women in non-traditional industries rising up to become top management. Today, many are starting their own businesses. The success in recent years is not necessarily due to gender parity. We just need to give equal opportunities for all genders. One such example is Sara Cheng, CEO of Fuji Xerox Singapore. Being a CEO of a multinational tech company is a big responsibility and a tough job. But being an Asian woman CEO dominating the tech industry, is solid proof that gender and cultural background does not hinder her path to becoming a successful leader.  What do women need to prepare in order to survive the business and tech industries? Are women more confident now than the last decades?

Women entrepreneurs have been emerging worldwide. They are starting to build up and bloom in business.

Our living spaces and workplaces are increasingly multicultural. A multicultural environment does not guarantee success.

With globalisation, it is inevitable that our society is increasingly diverse. Technology has enabled companies to operate virtually and in multiple countries. The improved mobility and accessibility has enabled the global workforce to fill talent gaps in far-flung places. Even so, the once homogeneous neighbourhood has welcomed Nepali security guards, Filipino nurses, Korean chefs and many others. The heterogeneity of a society or organisation can be a big advantage in our competitive world-- only if it is harnessed well.  Without a doubt, we need to learn how to adapt and navigate in our culturally diverse world. But where do we start? Do we need extensive travel experiences? Would it be different for a person from the West as opposed to a person from the East? Joining us is Meital Baruch, an organisational consultant, intercultural trainer, professional speaker and the founder of Global Mindset, a company that designs Intercultural learning programs and global leadership solutions to help organizations thrive in a culturally diverse world.   Check out our podcast on:  Apple Podcasts:  CastBox:  Google Play Music:  iHeartRadio:  Overcast:  Spotify:  Stitcher:    Highlights from the podcast episode can be found here:    *If you enjoy this episode, please like, share or comment on this post.

I honestly did not think much of ASEAN despite living and being Malaysian. This episode has gotten me curious and most importantly, feeling hopeful. The questions that the host raised was also relevant to me as a listener. Might consider picking up the book.

Inspiring. I think I'm going to start my own podcast channel as well. I thought of making YouTube videos, but it's taking too much of my time and too many technical hurdles. My theme is educational and informative, specifically for Malaysian audience. Where are you from?
