Raffles Town Club, Private Lounge (level 2), 1 Plymouth Ave, Singapore 297753

HEALTH TIPS FOR THE NEW YEAR! Back by popular demand! Chinese medical theory is not scientific in the ordinary sense of the word, but is as elegant as many profound scientific theories. From its almost metaphysical models emerged a system of health preservation and therapy that has not only survived from antiquity to modern times but also gained increasing acceptance in developed societies. What is the secret of its popularity and how can it help you achieve health and longevity? Speaker Hong Hai is Adjunct Professor at Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and former Dean and Professor at NTU’s business school. He had an earlier career in business, and was President and CEO of Haw Par Corporation (1990-2003). He received the MPA from Harvard Kennedy School in 1988 and attended the Advanced Management Program at HBS (AMP 94).
