Corporate Leadership and the Cybersecurity Challenge / Microsoft U Chicago

Wednesday, 06 Sep, 2017 19:01 - 21:00
Microsoft Singapore Level 21, Auditorium, One Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018989

Cyber security has come sharply into the mainstream consciousness especially in the recent waves of global cyber-attacks. As organisations embark on digitisation with investments in IoT, Big Data, Analytics, Robotics, or Augmented Reality, they become increasingly vulnerable. A wide range of alumni and professionals we speak to - from the C-suite to business unit heads, consultants to SME owners - are keen to be updated about the latest trends, understand the opportunities and threats presented by cybersecurity, and develop a framework for corporate leaders to systematically understand and approach cybersecurity with their business and technology partners. We are therefore organising an event on Cybersecurity Strategy, where our community can be exposed to different perspectives on cybersecurity, have practical questions answered by leading practitioners, and start building communities of practice. Distinguished Universities Alumni League (DUAL) are welcome to attend.

Nanyang Business School (NBS) Focus Point - How to Build a Strong Brand and Stay on Top using Neuromarketing

Wednesday, 08 Nov, 2017 19:00 - 21:00
Central Location (TBA)

In today’s crowded marketplace, brands have to try harder than ever before to stand out from their competitors and build solid relationships with their consumers. In an environment where success or failure can reside with a few brief words on social media, brands need to stay highly attuned to the constantly shifting needs and expectations of their customers. Neuromarketing - which captures consumers’ deep-seated feelings, thoughts and emotions - now provides every industry with the ammunition it requires to understand, pre-empt and respond to consumers with greater accuracy than has been previously possible.

Cost: $20 per NBS/NTU Alumnus; $40 per CFA/DUAL Member; $90 per Guest

RSVP: http://web.nbs.ntu.edu.sg/alumni/registration/NBSFocusPoint_171019/register.asp

Contact: Adeline Lim at adelinelim@ntu.edu.sg

At this NBS Focus Point, you will hear Professor Gemma Anne Calvert of NBS discuss about the latest developments in neuromarketing, from effective machine-based lie-detectors to web-based attention monitors, and tinder-type apps that can uncover people’s unconscious attitudes and biases on mobile devices. Successful brands understand the market, great brands get deep inside consumer’s brains and anticipate the future. Learn how you can do this too by leveraging on brain science.
