Join in conversation with young Canadian artist, Benjamin Von Wong, keynote speaker at SCLE2019, and change leaders in Singapore. Share your experiences and ideas, and challenge yourself, to move beyond awareness and take action for the environment and social impact.
Benjamin Von Wong has been making waves around the world with his epic photography, hyper-realistic art style and innovative concepts, specifically designed to go viral and drive conversations. He credits his background in engineering for giving him a unique edge for creative problem solving. Toronto-born (his parents migrated from Malaysia), Ben studied mining engineering at McGill University, and picked up photography as a hobby while working in a mining company in US.
Hailed as an engaging storyteller, viral campaign creator and marketing master, Ben challenges himself to create shareable meaningful work that will help to drive change. He is currently focused on conservation and social impact projects, and looking to work with corporations that have a Triple Bottom Line. Join in conversation with Ben and other change leaders in Singapore:
