Distinguished corporate and academic speakers from Thailand, the United States and around the world slated to present impactful methods for leaders on driving change
How do today's leaders drive real change in their organizations? In an era of "always on" learning, how can leaders maximize the potential of their executives or their students?

On Wednesday, July 25, MIT Sloan School of Management —one of the top-ranked business schools in the world—joins Sasin School of Management —one of the top schools in Southeast Asia—in hosting Bangkok's first   Action Learning Conference to be held on the Sasin campus at the Sasa Patasala Building Soi Chula 12, Phyathai Road, Bangkok.

Fifteen Action Learning projects have taken place in Thailand since 2009, many of which are now conducted jointly with Sasin.
