Why you should listen

Economist Piyachart Phiromswad is a professor at the Sasin School of Management at Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. With more than a decade of experience teaching executive education, he has developed a program around "responsible transformation," a discipline to help leaders prepare for the demographic, economic and environmental disruptions ahead. At the heart of responsible transformation is a recognition that while companies need to adapt to survive, they must also — and can! — do so without disregarding the survival of others and society.

Phiromswad particularly focuses on disruption as it relates to senior citizens, those living and working in developing countries and small and medium-sized enterprises. He was a winner of the 2022 TED Idea Search.
