Making New Connections

The 2008 Asia Pacific Summit was held from 9th-11th September at the Museum of Contemporary Art at The Rocks in Sydney, Australia. The Summit’s theme was ‘Making new connections’ and we certainly achieved that and a lot more. A tremendous number of new connections were made, between people, ideas and research, and new insights for developing leaders.
