Symbolically flying the flags of many nations, the program’s 120 participants represent 34 nationalities and come from 86 companies.

To further facilitate innovation, the program offers a unique Mega Dive experience – a giant team approach to developing solutions to challenges or opportunities by combining brainstorming and prototyping.

OWP Singapore also puts forward a diverse schedule with topics including digital business, leadership, innovation, strategy and family business.
