Goal & Growth

Knowledge is overwhelming in this digital world. You can learn everything on the internet. However, except for one thing, is the reason why we need to learn. In CEO Class, we focus on the personal goal and goal. We want to inspire every audience to think about the WHY of themselves by learning from the greatest leader's story.

One CEO + One Host

In each session, we will invite one CEO to share his/her personal goal and career. It is not about business, but personal. How he/she become a CEO? What is the story? How he/she facing COVID-19 as it is an everyday challenge? Also, we will have one host to facilitate the dialogue. The host will bring an interactive session to learn more about the CEO.

Global stage without fancy stage

Because of a virtual setting, there are no physical boundaries. Therefore, we can have the CEO from anywhere and at any time. Different from the traditional global events, we don't have a super-premium stage, but we have the most real and interactive dialogue with the greatest leaders. 

What is the need are you focusing on?

In this COVID-19 outbreak situation, more than 130 countries have now closed schools nationwide, impacting nearly 80% of students globally.


"Suspending classes without suspending learning",

While there are so many e-learnings available on the internet,

we believe that it’s even more important to explore and bring inspiration to students’ personal goals and growth.


Having clarity in the goals that we are trying to achieve, at the same time having a personal growth strategy, it’s a really difficult topic for everyone.


In our busy daily life, we have no time to think about it.

“What do I want to do actually? “

“How can I make it work? “

“Is it really what I want to do? “


Now, it’s time to think about it. Manage risk into opportunity. This outbreak gives an opportunity to re-think and re-define our personal goals and growth plan.
