Jason Ma Masterclass - Leadership 3.0: Mentoring and Transforming Teams For Success

The future of work and talent has arrived, and change is not only constant, but also accelerating. Worldwide, the growing impact of technologies (especially AI), digital transformation, globalization, intergenerational and cultural shifts, diversity, as well as the changing nature of careers and the “gig economy,” are raising people’s and companies’ productivity and connectivity. At the same time, these factors, along with social media, geopolitical turbulence, educational system issues, among other causes, are increasing stress, anxiety, fear, and already intense competition.

Linear career conformity and political correctness don’t seem to work well anymore. To navigate effectively through the world’s ever-changing market and talent dynamics, executives and managers must rethink and enhance their leadership skills in dealing with this unprecedented workforce, especially Millennial and Gen Z achievers.

Let trusted success coach/mentor, C-suite strategic advisor, and masterclass leader Jason Ma inspire and enlighten you on the why’s, what’s, and how’s.

Biography

JASON MA

  • Founder, CEO & Chief Mentor of ThreeEQ Inc.
  • Leading Member of The B20 with The G20
  • Acclaimed Author of Young Leaders 3.0 & Forbes Contributor
  • C-Suite/Boardroom Strategic Advisor & Global Rainmaker
  • Foremost College Consultant & Next-Generation Leaders’ Mentor

Jason Ma 馬良傑 is Founder, CEO, and Chief Mentor of ThreeEQ Inc., a premier global education and business consultancy that helps select high-end families and enterprises worldwide achieve great outcomes. Based in innovative Silicon Valley, ThreeEQ’s mission is to transform chosen young people into impactful, next-generation leaders and help shape the G20 business and education world.

For select families, ThreeEQ serves as a foremost college admissions, career, leadership, and life coach and mentor for driven teens and young adults (Gen Z’ers), as well as a trusted parent coach. ThreeEQ maintains a 100% success rate with coachable and committed high achievers.

Ma is the acclaimed author of the groundbreaking book Young Leaders 3.0: Stories, Insights, and Tips for Next-Generation Achievers. He is also the former Forbes contributor on Mentoring Young Leaders (for elite college admissions, next-gen leadership, and entrepreneurship success) with over 1 million views. In addition to serving often as the chief mentor for client families, Ma is a sought-after speaker to Family Office events, (U)HNW private groups, and other summits. Ma’s work has been featured in various top media, including CNBC Asia (Managing Asia and Squawk Box), Business Rockstars, Fast Company, Channel NewsAsia, and various other media outlets. ThreeEQ is featured as the preeminent Gen Z success mentor in Black Tie Magazine (published also in Chinese 中文). 

In the business world, Ma personally helps select enterprises and institutions win and grow profitably by serving as a globally connected, high-powered (tech) CEO/Board advisor and global rainmaker, executive coach, and/or keynote speaker/masterclass leader (represented by top speakers bureaus). Ma is a speaker and Global Advisory Council member at the World Chinese Economic Summit, a speaker and Steering Committee member for DC Finance’s Family Office conferences, and a charter member at the Family Office Club. Ma was a privately invited APEC CEO Summit delegate, Pacific Basin Economic Council member, and Forbes Global CEO Conference delegate for 8 years.

Ma is a leading member of the B20 with the G20 through the G20 and B20 Presidences of Australia, Turkey, China, Germany, and Argentina. The G20 represents 85% of the global nominal GDP of close to US$90 trillion and 66% of 7.6 billion people. The Business 20 (B20) is the business/private sector’s voice of the G20. Serving on the B20 Employment and Education Task Force, while observing the Digital Economy and other task forces, Ma has helped shape the private sector’s employment/human capital and education policy recommendations for the G20 Leaders and governments. Ma pays particular attention to the future of work/talent/education, impact of AI/ML, and digital economy/transformation.

Ma’s perspective is enhanced by 35 years of seasoned industry operating experience and global connections in innovative technology, education, and other industries, and with over 2 million miles of world travels across Asia Pacific (Greater China, Southeast Asia, South Asia, Japan, Korea, and Australasia), Europe/Israel, and the Americas. As a tech senior executive and entrepreneur earlier in his career, Ma successfully made deals with and sold big-ticket communications and networking systems and services internationally to major mobile/telecom operators, Internet service providers, and various enterprises. He co-built leading tech companies and teams (subsequent IPO or M&A), and co-founded, invested in, and exited astutely from a few U.S. and Asian tech/media/telecom, edtech, and private college counseling/education services companies. Along the way, he has amassed a high-powered, high-level global network.

Ma earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at UC Berkeley College of Engineering in 1984. He also attended the evening MBA program at Santa Clara University Leavey Graduate School of Business for a few years but ultimately chose real international business over graduate school.

Originally from Hong Kong, Ma is multicultural, fluent in Cantonese, and proficient in Mandarin. Proud Americans, he and his wife are joyful parents of two happy, high-achieving Gen Z daughters (ages 22 and 19). In the Ma family (playfully, the “MAfia”), Ma values unconditional love, humor, and high standards on what matters.

These days, besides advising CEOs/C-suite executives, global rainmaking for business clients, and speaking on the world stage, Ma finds his own personal fulfillment by inspiring and guiding private family and individual clients to achieve great outcomes (college admissions, careers, and other key milestones) in their life stages (from driven teens to multimillionaire boomers) with joy and well-being, including pragmatic emotional, social, and leadership intelligence (3EQ).
