Members representing 27 countries gathered in Bangkok, Thailand, on October 20-21, for the PRAXI Alliance 2017 Autumn Summit.

The summit kicked off with an introduction to Thailand and the ASEAN by Rolf-Dieter Daniel of the European Association of Business & Commerce. HR Directors Stefano Innocenti (Ducati), Christophe Lejeune (Accor Group) and Christophe Brun (Essilor Group) provided insight into the recruitment trends and challenges in the region.

David Braham introduced Six Degrees Executive (Australia), our newest member firm, and Members also met Tom Conroy from GattiHR (US) and José Manuel Fuentes from Development Systems (Spain and Latin America).

It is impossible to ignore the impact of new regulations and the rapidly evolving move towards digitization, AI and other competitive forces. 

To close the summit, Arnauld de Nadaillac (ANC Consulting) and Oranuch Pruetipibultham (NIDA) gave an engaging and interactive presentation about cultural diversity, with a particular focus on Asia-Pacific.

“This summit was action-packed and we believe that members came away better prepared to serve our clients and our profession,” said Fabio Sola, Director, "The ASEAN has outstanding growth prospects, and our members now have a better of understanding of how to be effective here."
