The Asia Women’s Summit 2020 with a theme of Share, Care & Dare would provide the participants a lot of things to learn from the speakers as they share their struggles, success and sustained growth in their journey through the years.
Presented by Multisys Technologies, this event would certain provide valuable insights and inspirations to everyone regardless of gender.
Speaking to THEPHILBIZNEWS, Rebecca Bustamante, also known as “Self-Made” and the President of ASIA CEO said, “There is a significant change now in the landscape of the corporate world if you will observe.”
“The growing numbers of women holding key positions and how they steer up their organizations would surely bring awareness to the participants about how they can make their life or career successful too. But it was not easy, and that is what they will share during the Asia Women’s Summit 2020, which is the nation’s premier event for professional women,” she added.
“We know the struggles of many women out there and this event is for them. We are blessed that this event that the Multisys Technologies presented will help them overcome the obstacles holding them back in their careers and make better lives for everyone,” the ASIA CEO President explained.
“And hearing from these extraordinary leaders and their organizations on how they made a difference by helping their organizations and then become industry leaders by understanding their role and exploring their power within. This is what a lot of women out there do not see yet, that they have the power to change but they must also take the risk and be willing to be empowered,” Bustamante added.
