GRI discussions are NOT panels. They are like after-dinner

conversations in one’s own living room with a few good friends
under the guidance of the moderating Chair.

Everyone participates equally, not just the Discussion

(co-)Chairs. The job of the moderating Chair is to make
EVERYBODY talk and engage. Discussion co-Chairs sit
scattered about the room and participate no more, no less
than anyone else in the room.

If connecting with new partners can be useful, we encourage you

to ENGAGE as vocally and actively as you might enjoy. This will
enable others to get to know you and you to get to know them.

The Moderating Chair will be addressing questions DIRECTLY

to particular participants, by name or by pointing at them, not
just to anyone unspecified in the room at-large, as that is usually
greeted with pregnant silence. Even so, you are encouraged to
comment, question, dissent or otherwise interject.

As no one will prompt you, please join the discussion room

of your choice in time. Rooms only fill in AFTER a discussion
starts and you need not be alarmed by a near empty room. It
will quickly get crowded.

Some participants speak so softly as to be unheard by most.

SPEAK UP and remind others to do so if you can’t hear them.

AVOID monopolizing conversation, self-promotion or

commercial pitches as the Moderating Chair has been urged to
cut them off.

The GRI format was designed to enable senior industry

leaders to share, learn and make friends in as natural,
spontaneous and collegial a setting as possible. We
welcome your suggestions as to how we can do better.

While journalists may sometimes take notes during

discussions, they only ever do so after signing a
“Chatham House” confidentiality agreement under
which they commit not to quote for attribution to a
person or to a company, except with specific consent
from the respective parties. In addition, students or
other reporters summarize most of the discussions and
take notes that are subsequently distributed to
all participants.

The mission of discussion

Chairs at the GRI is not to talk
but to make others talk, engage
and connect.

We are delighted to welcome you to the Asia GRI 2011.

As with all GRI get-togethers, the Asia GRI 2011 was created by many present here
today who have contributed front-line expertise, intellectual brilliance, financial resources
and more, to reach out to fellow leading lights and create a program to discuss today’s issues.
We can’t thank them enough.

If (co-)chairing one or more discussions could be useful to you at any forthcoming GRI event, we
invite you to contact us and discuss how best to put them on the program. If any other type of
Christel Huang
involvement could be useful, it is similarly welcome.

In the meantime, please join in the fray and engage in the discussions as if this was about you,
your business, your opportunities. Because it is.

We wish you a great GRI. Thanks for being with us.
