Asia Insight Circle's monthly meetings, which are moderated discussions led by Walter Jennings, are the signature way that business leaders get the key insights and critical thinking from business peers they seek. Monthly meetings are designed to be intimate and personal, conducted around a conference table in a Hong Kong hotel.
Attendance at our monthly meetings is limited, and seats are available to be reserved on a first-come, first-served, limited to members only. This allows dialogue and thought exchange between members and affords a deeper connection than large-format meetings. Conversations amongst members are open and frank, personified by a top-level ideas exchange, solution sourcing, and peer group networking.
Speaker presentations are conducted without the trappings of PowerPoint, and designed to be discussions rather than presentations, for the benefit of the group. Meetings are recorded so that we can offer access to members who want to attend but are unavailable or who are unable to attain seating at a sold-out event.
We also offer twice annual events for our members, intended as peer-to-peer networking and special occasion events.
