AIESEC and ING share the same commitment towards leadership development, because in a world advancing at an unprecedented pace, we need leadership more than ever in order to tackle the arising challenges. However, as the world is changing, leadership is evolving too – adopting new forms that correspond to the 21st century lifestyle and culture. Nowadays, individuals are not leaders per se, but because they are experts in an area there is demand for, because they know how to build a culture, impact people and start a movement.
In order to build and nurture the right culture and develop the right kind of leadership, it is important to start from the “Iceberg principle” – What is it that we value and how will we behave according to it? People perform best when they are motivated and when they work on something they genuinely believe in, guided by values and ethics established within a shared culture.
That is why ING aims to build positive, inspiring leadership from the inside out and does this by encouraging employees to really know themselves; because leadership begins with self-awareness.
ING Bank will be facilitating a workshop at Youth to Business Forum Top Leaders Edition on February 25, 2014 where Mr. Robert Scholten, Country Head for Greater China will give participants a chance to learn about the ING Orange Leadership behaviours and how they are also applicable in the day-to-day life.

In February 2013, the country representatives of the world’s largest youth run organization – AIESEC came together to form the global association that we are today for the Global Leaders Summit in Serbia. This event brought together 220 President of AIESEC from 110 countries and 30 members of the global executive board of AIESEC. The current and newly elected presidents of AIESEC in India – Ramita Vig & Anubhav Razdan represented India at this summit.
In the two weeks that they were there they discussed topics on relevant international issues and the importance of improving and developing leadership in young people. The result was that they created strategies to build a better future for young people throughout the world through the products & services that AIESEC provides i.e. leadership, international internships and the chance to participate a global learning environment.
One of the monumental events that took place at this summit was the ING Award Night where ING awards those countries that have performed exceptionally in the year. AIESEC in India had the absolute honour to receive the ING Award for Contribution to the Global Network. AIESEC India was selected for this award from the network of 110 countries for the second consecutive time.
On winning this award, Ramita Vig – President of AIESEC India says, “This is only a by product of the hard work and commitment of our membership that strives to deliver. The members believe in the power of experiences that they provide and simultaneously understand the responsibility that they have to provide such leadership experiences to individuals.”
Winning an award is not only about the recognition that you receive. It is about knowing that we are on the right path in helping AIESEC deliver high quality experiences to the youth of the world.
We thus invite you to be part of our movement to further accelerate us towards developing every young person in the world.
