Honourees from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand are selected from a wide range of 19 industries, varying from advocacy to entertainment, environment, technology, Food & Beverage, Healthcare and Sciences, Sports etc. 

As Tatler calls it, “the Gen.T List is the ultimate reference of young leaders who are shaping Asia’s future, building a community of extraordinary individuals bound by a common desire to change themselves, their businesses, society and the world.”
