They keynote address will be delivered by the very first Sri Lankan to hold the apex post of Rotary International, K.R. Ravindran.

The summit is expected to “Raise Awareness” on multiple issues that impact on society. whilst individuals and institutions alike have responded to the needs of society, there is still considerable work that needs to be done in many diverse areas. The speakers from a cross section of industries and backgrounds will provide keys insights that would, hopefully, serve to enlighten as well as inspire those present. 

The acronym RAISE could be broken down into its various components; Reconciliation, which should transcend national barriers to include among others, the Lankan diaspora; Alleviation of Poverty as well as overall living standards; Inspiration, from anecdotes from various individuals and institutions; Social Responsibility, even Beyond CSR, as the theme of the event suggests; and  Engagement, of stakeholders from various strata of society.
