Formal education may be a good vehicle for imparting specialised knowledge or domain expertise. What it does less well is to teach leadership development, hence the moral vacuum sometimes evident at the upper levels of society from business to politics. This dilemma was the focus of a recent talk by Banyan Tree Holding’s executive chairman, Ho Kwon Ping, as part of the CEO Talks series organised by the Wee Kim Wee Centre of Singapore Management University (SMU). Ho, who is also chairman of SMU’s Board of Trustees, won the CEO of the Year 2007 award in Singapore.
