Makoto Okubo’s presentation in Kuala Lumpur

From my lecture on SDGs:
We used to be companies which pay a claim when something bad happens. Those days are gone. We believe there is a paradigm shift in insurance business. Life insurance is not death insurance. We have to support every aspect of human lives. We are now competing each other to make our customers happier and healthier. By doing it, we are collaborating as a whole to contribute to the society toward sustainable future. Supporting SDGs is not just a charity under CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) but our core business.

Mack combined his lecture with music, sharing information about Music for SDGs project and showing a music video of Ayumi Ueda’s 100 Voices 1 Heart Project. She is one of the supporting artists and the project team members. She successfully created a music video, where singers from 44 countries got together singing Wings to Fly (翼をください).

The only Malaysian participating singer Louisa Foong’s interview was also included and well received by the audience.
