Ernst and Young (EY), a global professional services company, has chosen IronOne Technologies and BoardPAC Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Lakmini Wijesundera to be included in the prestigious EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women (EWW) Asia-Pacific program 2017 as a top women entrepreneur in the region.
The EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Asia-Pacific programme, now in its third year, is an executive leadership programme that identifies a select group of high-potential women entrepreneurs whose businesses show real potential to scale and then helps them do it. This year-long program is designed for women with established businesses who are ready to scale operations and grow to become global market leaders by equipping participants with tools and relevant information. The programme will also provide strategic support through leading guidance and access to the EY global entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Expressing her views, Lakmini Wijesundera said, “It is a great honour for me to be included in the esteemed Entrepreneurial Winning Women Asia-Pacific programme by Ernst and Young. As the first Sri Lankan entrepreneur to get selected for this initiative, I find this opportunity as a lifetime achievement to work along with leading women entrepreneurial leaders from Australia, Greater China, Singapore, South Korea and Vietnam, as well as strengthen executive leadership and business skills by identifying opportunities to grow IronOne and BoardPac through regional visibility.”
Participants of this year’s programme convened for the first time in May 15 and 16 at the EY Entrepreneurial Winning Women Asia-Pacific Conference, which was held at Taj Mahal Palace and Hotel, Mumbai. At different sessions, participants were able to share the same passion for innovation, service, developing people and improving the quality of their lives, providing customers exceptional experiences, all the while being rooted in strong ethical values.
