In this post-pandemic world, the leaders we look up to serve a purpose much larger than themselves and their companies. To these individuals, it is no longer simply about chasing pure profits, but chasing the dream of making the world a better place. And who better to learn valuable lessons from other than our cover personality Jaelle Ang of The Great Room? During an intimate interview with the high-flyer, the mother of four sheds light on what it took to achieve the success she worked so hard to achieve today. With sustainability being one of the hottest buzzwords in the world now, we also profile four young leaders across various consumer luxury sectors who are knee-deep in driving change. Meet Lars Nielsen of BMW Group Asia, Renyung Ho of Banyan Tree Group, Cheng Hsing Yao of GuocoLand, and Ruth Yeoh of YTL Group. The green leadership theme continues into the rest of the magazine, where we chart the kind of transformation various communities are pushing for – from the most eminent brands in the watch and jewellery world, the reformists in the art world, to the hospitality folks at Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, to our favourite F&B outlets in town. The innovators of the digital fashion world spill the beans on what they really do and their quest to elevate their creations. We journey to Hamburg, Germany, to visit the new Montblanc Haus. CEO of Raffles & Orient Express Stephen Alden details ambitious plans for his brands. And Range Rover shows us why it is still the gold standard for luxury SUVs, having pioneered the concept in 1970.
