What is LESA?

Leadership Energy Summit Asia is Asia’s top leadership summit that has attracted the likes of Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder; Nicol David, Squash World Champion; Michio Kaku, Co-founder of the String Field Theory; and Aron Ralston, adventurer who inspired Hollywood film ‘127 Hours’.

LESA 2020 was the first-ever virtual summit that attracted 8,000+ delegates.  

There hasn’t been a more pressing time in recent history for us to expand and harness our leadership energy so we can find opportunities in the adversity of an unpredictable, changing, business environment triggered by the global pandemic.

For a limited time, we are making one of the top-rated talks of LESA 2020 FREE!
“I wish this talk could go on for three hours – an hour is simply not enough with Prof. Rigobon!”
“I never knew learning from Professors could be so exciting – Prof. Rigobon was humorous and practical.”
“If this is how colorful and diverse MIT and ASB Professors are, I’d sign up for a class with them any day!”
– Feedback from LESA participants
Access Free Recording: The Cycle of Self-Discovery and Economic Transformation​

Covid-19 has affected local and global economics across the board, becoming the catalyst for business transformation at a deep level. As we collectively figure out this ‘New Norm’, we have also demonstrated our capacity to adapt to change.

In this session, Prof. Rigobon explores what it takes for countries, organizations, and individuals to transform and thrive in the post-pandemic era.
