Program Highlight

Coming from the financial sector, the technology industry is foreign to many of the participants. But it was for that reason that a visit to web and mobile application company Pinterest was a rousing success. “The insights they received have a profound impact in terms of getting a better appreciation of the need to humanize technology for a more purposeful mission in business and life,” said Wong. They were especially impressed by hearing the transformational journey of the company through direct and personal testimonials.
