"The programme provided me with strategic frameworks to use in my work. I learned to look at principles and our commitments in depth, to better see possible future consequences. I have become better at seeing which areas are worth exploring and which are not. We must follow a well-structured path within the framework and not get deviated by other conversations. So those are some tangible results from SIMP, being able to use these frameworks internally."

"Being part of SIMP Asia 2020 has helped me understanding the global discourse around sustainability and responsible leadership from a business perspective, then extending the learnings to the organisation where I work for. Most importantly, SIMP's comprehensive curriculum encourages its participants to bring the knowledge and skills from (virtual) classrooms into execution in their own business development."

“Through the programme, I learned how to connect advocacies with corporate objectives. Learning the vocabulary, frameworks and methodologies equipped and empowered me to be an agent of change in the workplace and for my community. When I came back, my focus was no longer just on sustainable and ethical leadership, but on mentoring and promoting diverse talents as long-term business strategies. Once I was able to marry these causes that I was passionate about with the organization’s bottom line, I felt unstoppable."
