AmCham launched a new program for members this year called the “AmCham Leadership Development Academy”. The program was announced by AmCham Chair Natasha Ansell at an event in January with Deputy Prime Minister Hue and will take place throughout 2019 to celebrate 25 years of AmCham’s promotion of a better business climate in Vietnam for all companies and investors.
Over 30 rising starts of AmCham member companies are gathering once per month for learning and networking opportunities. Presentation topics include a mix of themes such as maximizing your communication skills, leading and managing effectively, understanding the linkages between business operations and society, remaining relevant in your profession, becoming more persuasive, personal habits of successful leaders, behavioral ethics, running more efficient meetings, and more.
The aim of the Academy is connect, develop and empower participants through modules on career development best practices, peer-to-peer networking, and dialogue with senior executives from industry-leading companies. At AmCham’s annual meeting in December, a Certificate of Completion will be presented to participants who have attended five or more modules.
Some upcoming modules include:
May 8 — Leadership of Change
June 25 — Speed of Change: How to Stay Relevant
July 24 — Business Intelligence & Data Analytics
August 27 — Importance of CSR: Understanding the Link between Business & Society
