Ted Talks of Asia

The ORIENTED Dialogue & Exchange Series gave young professionals a unique opportunity to dialogue with and hear straight-from-the-gut insights from industry leaders about market trends and developments in China.

The first Dialogue & Exchange was held in Shanghai with a spectacular Media Panel that included the Country Manager of the Walt Disney Internet Group, Editor-in-Chief & Chairman of FORTUNE China Magazine, and more. The event was attended by well over 100 professionals and executives in the industry, effectively launching the speaker series forward.

Till this day, there is no equivalent to the Ted Talks of the West that is focused squarely on the issues unique to the Asian region. So think of oriented.org as the non-profit arm to the core business and the impact it would have on society as a whole. We need more compassion and understanding in this world…
