RBS Asia guarantees you meaningful engagement and practical insights from fellow corporate practitioners. All discussions at the conference are solution-focussed; no sales pitches, only honest and transferable experiences shared by your peers.

Seventy percent of the summit is workshop-based, so through a series of intimate workshops, interactive roundtables and live polling you and your peers will find the ways to manage the biggest challenges and opportunities.

The Ethical Corporation Difference

We have been producing events for 15 years and have evolved our events to reflect the needs of our customers. We spend a lot of time engaging and listening to our community to understand how we can help tackle issues at our conferences

  • Practical and business focused insight: Leave our events with proven, actionable ideas and strategy from innovative companies that are pushing forward the sustainability and responsible business agenda
  • Tackling the issues that matter: Year-round research and open-ended discussion with C-Suite and Directors within business guarantees conference themes reflect the current issues, challenges and opportunities
  • Guaranteed learning: Interactive workshops, roundtable debates, case studies and panel Q&As ensure you get the answers you’re looking for. We create a learning, not listening environment, where everyone is encouraged to engage in the discussion
  • Senior-level networking: Senior-level professionals both speak and attend our events, providing you with a unique environment for peer-to-peer relationship building
