The 2018 Top Leaders Forum themed ‘Changing the Game: Building a Culture of Resilience Through Public-Private Partnership’ was held recently at the SMX Convention Center, Manila. The Forum brings together the country’s top executives and leaders from the National and local governments, private sector, academe, and science community, to discuss concrete actions in achieving disaster resilient communities. The highlight was the launch of SM Prime’s Business Continuity Program for its small and medium enterprise tenants as part of its Disaster Risk Reduction efforts for its business partners and stakeholders.
