Ahead of the TIME100 Impact Awards celebration, TIME will convene the inaugural TIME100 Leadership Forum, an intimate event bringing together CEOs and other innovative thinkers from across Asia and the globe to explore how they are using their platforms to build a better world. Event speakers include Eric Schmidt, Schmidt Futures co-founder; Sandhya Sriram, Shiok Meats Group CEO, Chairman and Co-Founder; and Neo Gim Huay, World Economic Forum Managing Director and Head of the Center for Nature and Climate.

The TIME100 Leadership Forum and Impact Awards in Singapore were developed in partnership with the Economic Development Board (EDB) and Singapore Tourism Board (STB), which will co-host both events.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Singapore Economic Development Board and Singapore Tourism Board to convene our TIME100 community in Singapore for the first time, and we look forward to spotlighting business leaders who are moving our world forward and celebrating the extraordinary achievements of our TIME100 Impact Award honorees,” said TIME’s Vice President of events and editorial director of the TIME100 Dan Macsai.
