Jakarta, May 8th, 2015 – Prita Kemal Gani (Founder and Director of The London School of Public Relations Jakarta, Finalist of Indonesia’s Entrepreneurial Winning WomenTM 2010) has been selected as EWW Asia-Pacific Class of 2015. Together with other thirteen most dynamic Asia-Pacific based female entrepreneurs, Prita attended the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Asia-Pacific 2015 private conference program, held in Singapore last week. Chosen from among EWW Indonesia past finalists and Class of Winners, Prita now has access to global EWW alumnae of experienced and successful entrepreneurs, mentors, business partners and even venture capitalists.
Entrepreneurial Winning WomenTM Asia-Pacific is an executive leadership program that identifies a select group of high-potential women entrepreneurs whose businesses show real potential to scale — and then helps them do it. Participants in the EWW Asia-Pacific Class of 2015 were selected for their readiness to grow their businesses and develop or expand their global footprints. These women own companies across a wide variety of industry sectors, including media and entertainment, education, lifestyle and luxury brands, textiles, and food and beverage. The selection process for Indonesia’s representative to be the Class of 2016 is now underway.
Sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank, the program consisted of a series of panel discussion in which a number of notable speakers like Manoj Menon (Managing Director Asia-Pacific, Frost & Sullivan), Brian West (Senior VP and Senior Partner Managing Director, FleishmanHillard) and Svida Alisjahbana (President Director and CEO, Femina Group) presented topics, such as business megatrends, building and defending brands, forces shaping the world and EY’s Growth Navigator; fireside chat with two exceptional female entrepreneurs and mentoring and strategic networking session.
Representing Indonesia, Prita joined Karen Hopkins (EY’s Asia-Pacific Brand, Marketing and Communications Director) in a one-on-one interview session and shared her success story and business determination in the upcoming years.
“I want to evoke and showcase the spirit of creativity of London School to the international arena, and to gain international recognition that has an impact on economic improvement in Indonesia,” said Prita.
