The Presence of Vice President Director of BCA Armand W. Hartono and Nicholas Saputra at “BCA Berbagi Ilmu” at UNDIP, Enthusiastically Welcomed by Students

Semarang, 8 May 2024 - In commemoration of National Education Day, the 'BCA Berbagi Ilmu' program is conducted in several cities in Indonesia, including Semarang. Now, it's time for students from University of Diponegoro University (UNDIP) to have the opportunity to gain knowledge from a public lecture entitled 'Survival Leadership, Facing Uncertainties,' which was delivered directly by Vice President Director of BCA Armand W. Hartono.

More than 700 UNDIP students participated in the public lecture held at Prof. Sudarto, SH Building, Diponegoro University, on Tuesday (7/5). This public lecture was also complemented by an inspirational talk show featuring Nicholas Saputra as the Bakti BCA Ambassador.

“BCA Berbagi Ilmu” program is one of Bakti BCA's flagship programs under the Education Pillar to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of Quality Education, as well as to preparing a quality and competitive young generation to face the peak of the demographic bonus in the upcoming 2030.

Vice President Director of BCA Armand W. Hartono stated, "The key to dealing with change lies in survivability, which is our ability to adapt amidst changes. To be a leader, we must be responsive to adapt in this dynamic modern era. One of the ways BCA achieves this is by listening to various feedback from customers, which drives us to continuously innovate to meet their needs.”

In a rapidly changing world, students are faced with complex challenges more than just completing academic tasks. They also need to prepare themselves for the dynamic work environment. Amidst these challenges, Vice President Director of BCA Armand W. Hartono and Bakti BCA Ambassador Nicholas Saputra explain the importance of having leadership qualities as a solid foundation to survive through changes.

In the talk show session, Bakti BCA Ambassador Nicholas Saputra emphasized that leadership along with creativity can grow from the toughest times, as has happened in the film industry. "One of the most important things is resilience. I feel resilience when we work, when we desire something, it becomes the key because life is long, careers are long, even though sometimes we also have to learn to sprint. Another important thing is education. In the midst of filming, I also studied architecture. I believe education can be obtained from anywhere, both formally and informally. All of it is necessary in cultivating leadership within ourselves," explained Nicholas.

Previously, “BCA Berbagi Ilmu” program was launched on May 3rd at BINUS University, Jakarta. Besides BINUS University and UNDIP, other BCA directors will also deliver various topics related to technology, financial industry, and banking at several universities, including Bandung Institute of Technology in Bandung, Sriwijaya University in Palembang, and Udayana University in Bali. Additionally, “BCA Berbagi Ilmu” program will conduct Student Banking Tour activity, which will invite a number of high school students to deepen their understanding of banking and financial literacy while visiting BCA branch offices. There will also be empowerment activities for people with disabilities.

In 2023, the series of public lectures “BCA Berbagi Ilmu” was held at 5 universities in Indonesia, and attended by more than 3,000 students. Meanwhile, Student Banking Tour activity was attended by over 900 students from 18 schools. Lastly, for people with disabilities, around 30 individuals were empowered through skill training, art bazaars, and tours to BCA branch offices.

EVP Corporate Communications & Social Responsibility of BCA, Hera F. Haryn stated, “BCA Berbagi Ilmu under the Bakti BCA umbrella is our act of supporting the younger generation to become excellent human resources and contribute to the Indonesian economy. Moreover, according to BPS, Indonesia is estimated to enter a demographic bonus period with the peak period until 2030, as indicated by the productive age population which is twice the number of children and elderly population. We believe that the best investment for this younger generation is education, thus Bakti BCA is committed to continuously facilitating them with various forms of support.”

Through the "Bakti BCA" umbrella, the company is committed to continually providing benefits on an individual, social, and ecosystem scale. BCA believes that empowered individuals can empower their communities, and empowered communities can contribute positively to the sustainability of the ecosystem, thus creating an interrelated and impactful cycle.
