[eNews] Colgate Asian Leadership Program 2019

With the success of its first run, the Executive Education Office has partnered with Colgate again to conduct the Colgate Asian Leadership Program on campus.

With an aim to strengthen participants with competence in strategy planning, accelerate growth and enhance their self-awareness and effectiveness with critical leadership skills, the program has attracted 33 executives from 13 different company locations. 

Kicked off by Mr Mukul DEROAS, the President of Colgate’s Asia Pacific Division, the three-day program consisted of lectures and computer simulations, presented by Prof Chris DORAN, on strategy planning with a special focus on the “Blue Ocean Strategy.” The participants were divided into five cross-functional and cultural teams to start the “Action Learning Project” as their final project in the program.

The participants rated the program positively, believing that it has changed their mindset, brought new business insights, and stimulated their creativity. They strongly believed the program could help them drive their personal and business growth.

The class will meet again in June for the second module which focuses on sharpening their skills in leading a team and cross-cultural management. They will come back to HKUST again in August to present their “Action Learning Project”.
