EO Leadership

Ivan Ting – EO Global Chairman – FY2016/2017
Share to Learn. Share for Life.

As entrepreneurs, sharing is an integral part of our journey. It is through the exchange of experiences, insights and passions that we are able to learn and grow from one another. This year, our efforts will be driven by a new organizational theme: Share to Learn. Share for Life. This theme represents the impact of investment through contribution. When we share, we invest in our own experiences and those of our peers, while contributing to build a more united, yet diverse, community. Nearly 30 years ago, EO was founded by a group of entrepreneurs who saw sharing as a solution, and it has been an integral part of our DNA ever since. Now, we are taking this tradition up a notch. Why? Because the more we share, the more valuable we become to each other, our organization and the world.
