King's Trend Talk – "Issues to look out for - Pre-election Malaysia"

Saturday, 04 Nov, 2017 18:00 - 20:00
The Penthouse, 391B Orchard Road #26-01, Ngee Ann City Tower B (TP Dental Surgeons Pte Ltd's Reception area)

Tracking Malaysia is like reading a thriller. One can never know what is the next surprise. e.g Muslim “only” laudromat in Muar (Johor.) It is either utterly confusing or very amusing. Any happening in Malaysia will affect us in Singapore. NUS Sociologist Syed Farid Alatas warned of an emergence of an “apartheid-like” environment in Malaysia. The reason was that the Malaysian Malay community is facing a sense of insecurity and both the politicians and religious scholars are exploiting that weakness. Politically, the former Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir is heading the opposition alliance Pakatan Harapan that could result in the 14th General Election to be the fiercest and dirtiest of all elections. KCLASS is having Mr. Wan Saiful to share the dynamic of the Malaysian political and economic environment with us.

Cost: Free (Registration required due to space constraint.)

RSVP: kclass2017@gmail.com

Contact: KCLASS Hons. Secretary

Speaker : Mr. Wan Saiful Wan Jan is Chief Executive of the Malaysian Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs. A visiting Senior Fellow at the Institute for Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS) and holds the current Chair of the Istanbul Network for Liberty.

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.
