Poker and decision making

Saturday, 18 Mar, 2017 14:00 - 18:30
BLK 71 #04-20/21 Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139951

The UPenn / Wharton and Columbia alumni clubs present an interesting and fun way to better decision-making. We all learned during economy class that people are rational. That we all make rational decisions. But reality tells us otherwise. We are predictably irrational. Our experiences and biases consistently keep fooling us. By understanding how our mind works, we can learn not only to make better decisions, but predict, influence and facilitate that of others. And how better to do that than during a game of poker? Because poker is just like business: we have to make a lot of quick decisions under pressure, in a competitive environment, without sufficient information, while managing scarce resources. And we have to adapt our strategy to a constantly changing world. We're going to enter this world on the afternoon of Saturday, 18 March. And don't worry, if you haven't played poker before. You will learn it during the session.

LKY School of Public Policy Evening Talk: World Order of Trump

Wednesday, 01 Feb, 2017 17:15 - 18:30
Seminar Room 3-1, Manasseh Meyer, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469E Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259774

The election of Donald J. Trump as the US President has caused much anxiety about its damage to the liberal international order. But Trump is the consequence, rather than the cause, of the crisis and decline of the existing order. That decline, as foretold in Acharya’s 2014 book, The End of American World Order, has to do with the liberal order’s own internal limitations – aggravated by a long-power shift in world politics – that a complacent liberal establishment in the West had glossed over earlier. Recognizing the broader and multifaceted nature of those challenges is key to any hopes for building world order 2.0: a decentered and pluralistic Multiplex World, with its own challenges and opportunities. Prof. Amitav Acharya is the Boeing Company Chair in International Relations at the Schwarzman Scholars Program, Tsinghua University, Beijing. Chairperson will be Prof. Kishore Mahbubani, Dean, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy

Hegemonic Transition?: The Lessons of History regarding the Shifting Power Dynamics of Asia

Tuesday, 25 Oct, 2016 12:15 - 13:30
Seminar Room 3-5, Manasseh Meyer, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469C Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259772

This is not the first time that the world has undergone hegemonic transitions. But what can the past tell us about what the future holds and how can we prepare for such dynamic changes? With the relative waning of US dominance in Asia, a political order is emerging as can be seen by an increasingly assertive and confident China that is not content with the status quo. As a global power, China seek to challenge the existing order by expanding its sphere of influence. This can be clearly seen in its recent actions in the East and South China Seas. By learning from the lessons of history, this talk will discuss the significance of this transformation and what it means for the future of Asia.

Tuesday, 04 Oct, 2016 16:45 - 18:00
Lobby, Oei Tiong Ham Building, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469C Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259772

We live in the midst of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” when technology is altering our current systems of production, distribution and consumption at an unprecedented pace. At the heart of this revolution lies cloud computing, which makes possible innovations in the physical, biological and digital worlds. This technology is creating tremendous opportunity worldwide, but up to 60% of the world’s citizens today remain excluded from the benefits of the digital economy. How do we ensure that technology is used to solve the world’s thorniest problems? Last September, a meeting of 193 world leaders led to a commitment to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as set forth by the United Nations. Over the next 15 years, governments and organizations will be working together to end extreme poverty, address environmental degradation and climate change, and fight inequality and injustice.

Future of World’s Water beyond 2030: A Perspective from Asia

Monday, 03 Oct, 2016 12:15 - 13:30
Seminar Room 3-5, Manasseh Meyer Building, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469E Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259774

The world is changing rapidly, certainly much more rapidly than most of us realize. During the next thirty years, the world of water management is likely to change more significantly than perhaps the last three hundred years. The forces that will induce these changes, unlike in the past, will not come from the water sector but mostly from outside this sector, on which the water profession will have no, or at best, limited say or control. For the past forty years, water professionals have been saying business as usual is not the solution but they are behaving as if there is no business unusual solution. As in the past, we are proceeding with only incremental solutions. Tomorrow’s water problems cannot be solved with today’s mindset, yesterday’s knowledge-base and day before yesterday’s experience. The lecture will cover how some areas of water management are likely to change radically over the next 20 years, and a roadmap of a new mindset needed to solve the future water problems.

What exactly are the implications of digitisation on training and learning? How can organisations re-organise to leverage the digital opportunity? What corporate training and learning paradigms are past their shelf life? What the future of corporate learning and training might look like: Learning-by-doing, when the learner is ready, across dispersed teams, just-in-time.

WorkCentral, Singapore Shopping Centre, 190 Clemenceau Avenue, Singapore. Enter from either Penang Lane or Clemenceau Avenue. WorkCentral's event space is on the 4th floor.

(more) Straight Talk: US Universities Admissions and Tests. Only 3 months since our last undergraduate event, but we've gotten many requests for a follow-up... and with application season kicking in gear for Fall 2017 entrants... Come hear test and admissions experts from the most sought after US universities talk about the process and experience.

Cost: Member and students - Free of Charge; Non-DUAL Member $5

RSVP: http://peatix.com/event/166589/

Contact: Please email jj255@columbia.edu for any questions

The competition for acceptance at US undergraduate universities continues to grow every year, especially among growing numbers of Southeast Asian applicants. Despite the popularity of "holistic" application processes, the SAT and ACT remain crucial components of most students' applications. The past year has seen major changes to both tests, changes that every student should be aware of before entering the testing room. Join Peter Kaufman (Yale '12), Director of Tutoring and Master Tutor at ArborBridge, for a full review of these updated tests and how to best prepare for them. The process of admissions can be overwhelming and intense. But what if getting into college wasn’t full of stress and anxiety? What if writing your essays was a breeze? Luke Taylor, the founder of SparkPrep and Stanford grad, will explain how the foundation of building your admissions profile starts with early discussions of values and goals and continues through to brainstorming to the final application.

Pan Pacific The Atrium Bar

Note: gals are waitlist only while there are 3 spots left for guys! Following 2 successful DUAL Speed Datings in 2015 in the new format, we will once again play cupid. So, rather than going through the standard opening questions (Where do you work? Do you game? How many goldfish do you want?), we've decided to continue to shake things up! In other words, you are to provide a short description of yourself in no more than 30 words upon registration. These will be compiled and published prior to the event, with only your initials identifying you. So be creative! At the event, there will be 15 guys and 15 girls. Every five minutes, you'll get to meet someone different and since you already know the boring background stuff about your partner, we'll also be providing questions to guarantee an interesting conversation.

Cost: $50

RSVP: http://goo.gl/forms/DUpfHm7JJt

Contact: Please contact dualcupids@gmail.com for any questions.

So if you're 35 and under, and looking for your partner-to-be, register quick! A confirmation email along with payment details will be sent shortly after. Remember, your spot is only confirmed after payment. We're taking only 15 guys and 15 girls this time - so be quick! Important If you are unable to make it, after registering successfully, please inform us as soon as possible so that the spot can be offered to the next person on the waiting list. Please note priority is given to alumni from DUAL member schools and who did not participate in the July 2015 DUAL Speed Dating.

Young China Watchers - China: The Highlights of 2015 with Susan Jakes

Tuesday, 08 Dec, 2015 19:15
Ricciotti The RiverWalk, B1-49/50, 20 Upper Circular Rd.

China: The Highlights of 2015 with Susan Jakes, Founding Editor of ChinaFile and Senior Fellow of the Asia Society's Center on U.S.-China Relations. As 2015 draws to a close, it’s an opportune time to reflect on the standout events in China over the course of the last year. From the signing of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank to President Xi Jinping’s historic dialogue with Taiwan, China has taken a growing role in world affairs. On the domestic front, the end of the country’s One Child Policy and a strong anti-corruption program point towards a growing sense of individual freedom and respect for the rule of law. Now with the release of China’s 13th Five-Year Plan, what’s next for the world’s most populous nation and second largest economy?

Cost: There will be a $15 net charge at the door, with proceeds going to Ricciotti. The cover includes one standard drink (beer, wine, soda).

RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ycw-sg-susan-jakes-china-the-highlights-of-2015-tues-dec-8-tickets-19702672223

Effective Networking with Jean Balfour

Wednesday, 18 Nov, 2015 19:01 - 21:00
INSEAD Campus 1 Ayer Rajah Ave. Singapore 089676

When it comes to career progression, networking is considered to be a core skill, yet often it is neglected. Many people find it ‘challenging’ or ‘scary’ and prefer to avoid it, thinking that performing in their role to high standards is the only factor in having a successful career. Especially for women, many of whom are working under time constraints imposed by caring responsibilities at home, this tendency can lead to having fewer networks to call on. The workshop will introduce the importance of networking to career progression. With a practical approach, it will provide useful tools to help achieve your networking goals. Jean Balfour is an accredited executive coach and organisation consultant with over 20 years experience. She specialises in executive coaching, leadership development and diversity and inclusion. She is Managing Director at Bailey Balfour, a Singapore-based global organisation consultancy.

The Supreme Court of Singapore, 1 Supreme Court Lane, Singapore 178879, Room : Level 2, Mediation Chambers 3&4

The Harvard Club of Singapore is pleased to organise "Mediation: Strategic Conflict Management for your disputes". Disputes are inevitable in the commercial sector. When disputes are brought to the Court, parties face hefty legal costs, potential reputational damage, as well as the loss of opportunity costs; time and resources which could have been better used to negotiate your next deal. Hence, mediation is increasingly gaining traction as a popular and preferred alternative dispute resolution mechanism. Explore, together with experts from the Singapore Mediation Centre, how mediation can help you reap substantial savings in costs and time, allow your business control over the outcome and preserve valuable business relationships, all within a private and confidential setting.

Nanyang Business School Focus Point: Transforming into a Knowledge Ready Organisation - Realising the Value of Knowledge for Work

Wednesday, 30 Sep, 2015 19:00 - 21:30
Capital Tower, FTSE Room (Level 9), 168 Robinson Road, Singapore 068912

Ever since Peter Drucker coined the term "knowledge worker" in 1969, the modern organisation has been in-waiting for this worker; the committed employee who would know what to do, when to do it, and certainly, how to do it, even when the situation rapidly changes. Yet as increased complexity, growing uncertainty and unpredictability engulf organisations, and as they struggle to remain competitive, Knowledge Management (KM) efforts quickly fade away and die. The need to tap into trends and patterns (Big Data and Analytics), finding what one needs (Retrieval and Search), whom one needs to know (Channels, Networks, and Communities), and whom one needs to learn from (Tacit Knowledge), remains critical in organisations. Join us for an engaging workshop where Dr Karuna Ramanathan will draw from his extensive experience in KM, leadership, and organisational development to unfold how your organisations can become knowledge ready.

Cost: $28 NBS/NTU Alumni; $40 CFA/DUAL members; $48 Guest

Landing Point, Fullerton Bay Hotel, 80 Collyer Quay, Singapore 049326

Following a successful DUAL Speed Dating on Valentine's Day in the new format, we will once again play cupid. So, rather than going through the standard opening questions (Where do you work? Do you game? How many goldfish do you want?), we've decided to shake things up a little this year! In other words, you are to provide a short description of yourself in no more than 30 words upon registration. These will be compiled and published prior to the event, with only your initials identifying you. So be creative! At the event, there will be 15 guys and 15 girls. Every five minutes, you'll get to meet someone different and since you already know the boring background stuff about your partner, we'll also be providing questions to guarantee an interesting conversation.

Cost: SGD 60/person

RSVP: http://goo.gl/forms/05eVmAVB04

Contact: Please contact dualcupids@gmail.com for any questions, or call/text 81122421 on the actual day for any urgent changes.

So if you're 35 and under, and looking for your partner-to-be, register quick! A confirmation email along with payment details will be sent shortly after. Remember, your spot is only confirmed after payment. We're taking only 15 guys and 15 girls this time - so be quick! Important If you are unable to make it, after registering successfully, please inform us as soon as possible so that the spot can be offered to the next person on the waiting list. Please note priority is given to alumni from DUAL member schools and who did not participate in the Feb 2015 DUAL Speed Dating.

GAZE: CONTEMPLATIVE MIND TO OBJECT A paradigm that reflects an artist’s philosophy is something that contemporary art world puts much importance to. However, this forces the notion that art must possess a certain concept of a profound nature and easily becomes a mere logical search that overemphasizes the role of subject to induce a discourse. This sometimes obstructs with the original concept of art. Originally, art was a genre whereby the artist recreates and interprets the reality observed through the individual mindset or sensual perspective, expressed via varying techniques. On the other hand, camera was invented with the purpose to capture the moment: which, in this sense, was a superb tool to ‘recreate’, however was not included in the realm of art. In the past, the world was only ‘recreated’ by painting, the primary tool of expression for artist in the past. Now photography has been elevated to a position akin to painting as a key tool for artist and has solidified its standin

Learning for the 21st Century by Dean Ranga Krishnan of the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore

Tuesday, 19 May, 2015 19:00 - 21:00
Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, 8 College Road, Level 2 Amphitheatre, Singapore 169857

The Internet is the 21st century replacement of the library. Google is the card catalog and Internet accessible web sites are the books, magazines and newspapers. We will share our insights from the way we learn what we characterize as an Internet-centric learning. We assert that curiosity drives learning and that mobile devices provide anyone with anywhere, anytime access to learning resources useful while chasing one's curiosity. But the key to learning is not just access to content but to facilitate its integration into learning. We adopted a stratified 3 step approach. The first is after students use the material to learn at home, they come in to class and are tested to see how much they learnt. Then they go into groups of 8 and teach each other and retake the test. Finally they work in the same small groups to assess if they can apply what they learn to solve difficult issues that are not easily solved. These steps engage and lead to application and development of the knowledge.

Cost: Admission is free, but please register by Tuesday, May 12th.

RSVP: Register via: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/learning-for-the-21st-century-tickets-16574506796

THE SPEAKER: Dean Ranga Krishnan has been Dean of the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore (Duke-NUS) since 2008. Prior to his Singapore move, Dr Krishnan was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Duke University Medical Center. A key decision-maker in the Singapore biomedical sciences community, Dr Krishnan has been the Chairman of the National Medical Research Council (NMRC) since 2013.

Understanding and Integrating Strategic CSR: the Risk Mitigation Way; Dr. Amy G. Lehman, MD, Founder of Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic/WAVE.

Thursday, 23 Apr, 2015 18:45 - 20:15
FTSE Room (Level 9), Capital Tower, 168 Robinson Road Singapore 068912

Synopsis: How can companies and investors reconceptualize corporate social responsibility, especially in the frontier markets? Instead of domiciling CSR in the marketing department, or sequestering it under separate "sustainability" headings, corporations need to understand the role of community stabilization, peace and security, health, education, and infrastructure in terms of long-term risk mitigation and integrate CSR into their core business strategies for long term success. Multinational Corporations and Private Equity often are required to make large upfront capital investments in frontier, fragile states where they hope to operate over the long term. Strategic CSR in partnership with local experts can lower the cost of doing business and mitigate risks in uncertain environments. Getting this right could mean the difference between success and failure, especially with respect to many countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

Cost: Free event

RSVP: Pls email : events@cfasingapore.org to register

Contact: events@cfasingapore.org

Speaker Bio: Dr. Amy G. Lehman is the founder of the Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic/WAVE. The Lake Tanganyika Floating Health Clinic (LTFHC) is an international organization whose mission is to address the problem of health care access for millions of people who live in the isolated, but strategically critical Lake Tanganyika Basin/Great Lakes region of Central Africa. Dr. Lehman received both an MD and MBA from the University of Chicago, and additionally trained in General Surgery at the University of Chicago Medical Center and was a Senior Fellow with the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics. Dr. Lehman received the 2014 Distinguished Young Alumni Award from the University of Chicago. She has been honored by Newsweek as one of the "150 Women Who Shake the World," and by a number of other publications for her work in the Lake Tanganyika Basin. She presents regularly at leadership conferences such as GE Leading & Learning, TED.

LKY School of Public Policy Lunchtime Talk - Bringing Shadow Education into the Light - The Growth of Private Supplementary Education and its Policy Implications

Thursday, 19 Mar, 2015 12:15 - 13:00
Seminar Room 3-5, Manasseh Meyer Building, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469E Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259774

Speaker: Dr. Louise Elffers, Researcher, University of Maastricht, School of Business and Economics. Shadow education, or supplementary education provided by the private sector, is a growing phenomenon worldwide. The most institutionalized systems of shadow education can be found in Asia. In South-Korea about 80% of primary and secondary school students attend private tutoring classes, with estimated yearly household expenditures nearing or exceeding public expenditure on education. In Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan, similar proportions of students engage in shadow education.

Cost: Admission is free. This is a brown bag session and you are most welcome to bring your own packed lunch.

RSVP: lkyschoolevents@nus,edu,sg or https://www.eventbrite.sg/e/lunchtime-talk-on-bringing-shadow-education-into-the-light-the-growth-of-private-supplementary-tickets-15792702398

Contact: lkyschoolevents@nus.edu.sg

In Singapore, parents, MPs, and educational experts have raised concerns about Singapore’s status of ‘tuition nation’. As students’ school careers increasingly rely on education provided outside the public system, the growth of shadow education has been called a ‘hidden’ privatization of the public education system, challenging equality of educational opportunity and the human right of free education for all. In this seminar, we explore the causes and consequences of a growing shadow education system and its potential policy implications. Looking at a variety of policy interventions from various countries, we discuss how governments may address the growth of shadow education. We will look into interventions that aim to capitalize on the potential benefits of shadow education, as well as interventions focused on minimizing its negative effects on students, schools and society.

NBS Masterclass on Consumer Neuroscience - Unlocking the Secrets of Consumer Behaviour

Tuesday, 17 Mar, 2015 19:15 - 21:15
Connection 1 (Level 3), Amara Singapore, 165 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088539

Asia is fast becoming the centre of gravity for big consumer brands. In the bid to dominate and maintain market share, brands compete ferociously to own key benefits and assets within their category. But how can you be sure that the colours, packaging designs, celebrities and straplines you think you own, are really yours and haven't been hijacked by the competition? Such brand "assets" help consumers to recognise and differentiate a brand, and brand owners use these cues to build strong, visible brands that can compete in today's highly cluttered marketplace.

Cost: $12 DUAL; $15 Guest

RSVP: http://www.nanyangbusinessschool.ntu.edu.sg/alumni/Registration/NBSmasterclass/register.asp

Contact: Jennifer Lee at YHLee@ntu.edu.sg

In this talk, Prof Gemma Calvert will show how these brand assets reside, not in the brand owner's intentions, but in the subconscious mind of their consumers. From uncovering basic needs and wants, to understanding how the deconstructed elements of a brand's packaging works, to the way in which campaigns exert their influence, Prof Calvert will reveal how you can now use neuro-implicit tools to extract the true essence of your brand and those of your competitors by capturing the implicit or subconscious responses of your consumers. Organised by Nanyang Executive Education and NBS Alumni Affairs

LKY School of Public Policy Lunchtime Talk - Urban Diversity in Theory and Practice

Seminar Room 3-5, Manasseh Meyer, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, 469E Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259774

Cost: Admission is free. This is a brown bag session and you are most welcome to bring your own packed lunch.

RSVP: Please register at lkyschoolevents@nus.edu.sg or https://www.eventbrite.sg/e/lunchtime-talk-on-urban-diversity-in-theory-and-practice-by-prof-norman-fainstein-susan-s-fainstein-tickets-15721417182

Contact: lkyschoolevents@nus.edu.sg

Urban policy makers have become increasingly attentive to planning for diversity and inclusiveness. They have defined diversity in terms of uses of urban areas (residential, commercial, industrial, etc.), of building typologies (high rise, low rise, compact, etc.), and of social groupings (class, ethnicity, culture, household structure and sexual orientation). Their concerns have merged with general philosophical commitments to recognition of others who are different. But the theoretical goals of recognition and inclusiveness lead to difficult practical dilemmas: Can genuine diversity be planned by government? Do market processes produce greater or less diversity? Does support for diversity lead to greater tolerance and stronger community or to identity politics and conflict? Singapore’s land use, planning and ethnic integration policies, along with the situation of foreign workers, will be examined in relation to these questions.

Wednesday, 10 Dec, 2014 12:15 - 13:45
The University of Chicago Booth School of Business, 101 Penang Road, Singapore 238466

More companies are finding their competitiveness mutually dependent on the health of their stakeholders, and are finding a need to better engage with their customers, employees, investors, partners, and communities. Innovative firms that can provide superior long-term access to broader segments of customers are able to realize new profit streams from meeting their social needs, while those forming deep linkages with their suppliers and distributors are able to secure more productive value chains. Visionary corporate leaders are leveraging on their organizational competencies to collaborate with governments, non-profit organisations, and social entrepreneurs, redefining the impact of capitalism today. Join social innovator Eden Strategy Institute in discussing its pioneering approach towards Shared Value, using real case studies to examine how Shared Value breaks the perceived trade-offs between corporate social responsibility and shareholder value.

Room 903, NTUC Centre, 1 Marina Boulevard, Singapore 018989

Nanyang Business School is pleased to invite DUAL members to their Alumni Affairs' Weekend Focus Point Series. Rates in the US are poised to rise. We have had unprecedented levels of interest rates, held low for an unprecedented period of time. Whilst this has led to the healing of the US economy, unfortunately it has also led to unintended consequences leading to the coining of the term "financial repression".

Cost: $30 for DUAL Members

RSVP: http://www.nanyangbusinessschool.ntu.edu.sg/alumni/Registration/NBSAlumniWeekend/register.asp

As the United States scales down economic stimulus, how will other countries, especially significant Asian economies like Japan and China prepare for this next phase of the U.S. monetary cycle? In particular, will China which has recently injected liquidity into her banking system, be a global game-changer? Looking at China’s actions in light of changes in the US monetary cycle, how will a smaller economy such as Singapore be affected? What global and local implications will there be for asset allocation, real estate financing and the outlook of the property market? To find out, join us for our NBS Alumni Affairs' Weekend Focus Point Series on 'Preparing for the next phase in the monetary cycle', with our speaker Mr Vincent Kok. Mr Vincent Kok is an NBS Alumnus from the Accountancy Class of 1991, and is currently the Chief Investment Officer of Delphi Capital Management (New York, USA).

LKY School of Public Policy Lunchtime Talk on "Combating Money Laundering in Asia Pacific" by Dr Muhammad Yusuf

The talk will be chaired by Dr. Eduardo Araral, Assistant Professor, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. PPATK is one of the most important government bodies in Indonesia in tackling corruption issues, together with KPK (Anti Corruption Commission) and others law enforcement agencies. Dr. Yusuf served 26 years in the Indonesian government and began his career as Prosecutor at Ujung Pandang District Prosecution Office on 1988 and became Deputy of High Prosecutor Office of Jakarta for Special Crime in 2007. In 2008, he was requested to be Director of Law and Regulation at PPATK and then in 2011 he was selected by President of the Republic of Indonesia to be head of PPTAK until present.

Cost: Admission is free.

RSVP: Please register at lkyschoolevents@nus.edu.sg. This is a brown bag session. Welcome to bring your own packed lunch.

Criminal acts such as corruption, bribery, and terrorism have symbiotic relationship with money laundering because the criminals have conceal the origin, source, location, allocation or the actual ownership of the assets obtained from such criminal acts. The talk will focus on money laundering. The estimation of the amount available for money-laundering would be within the IMF's original 'consensus range', equivalent to some 2.7 per cent of Global GDP (2.1 - 4 per cent) or US$1.5 trillion. It is realized that the flow of investment (and economic cooperation) between Singapore and Indonesia has been rising significantly in the last decade. This, however, comes to notion that the traffic of remittance either involving legal or illegal transactions has also increased. Therefor both Singapore and Indonesia have share some concerns regarding money laundering, especially within the Asia Pacific Region.

From health care to education, from financial reform to the provision of infrastructure, from grassroots development to international diplomacy, solutions are going beyond the old duality of “leave it to the state” or “privatize it.” But what does “go beyond" mean, and how do we do it? This talk explores the design and management of public-private partnerships. We examine theoretical approaches from several disciplines and consider some of the most exciting recent examples of successful collaboration. The subject offers the chance to reconsider the meaning and practice of entrepreneurship, leadership, and service.

LKY Public Lecture on "The Old Normal for The Economy" by Dr. Adam S Posen

Wednesday, 06 Aug, 2014 17:15 - 18:30
Auditorium, Block B, Level 3, NUS Bukit Timah Campus; http://lkyspp.nus.edu.sg/auditorium on directions to the venue.

Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy is pleased to announce their forthcoming Public Lecture and would warmly invite DUAL members to this special event. Speaker: Dr. Adam S. Posen, President of the Peterson Institute for International Economics, Washington's leading non-partisan non-profit think tank on globalization. An expert on macroeconomic policy, he is an adviser to the US Congressional Budget Office, served on the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee from 2009-2012, and has consulted for the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, IMF, and other central banks. He is the author or co-author of six books, and writes regularly for the Financial times. He received his Ph.D. and A.B. from Harvard University. The lecture will be chaired by Prof Razeen Sally, Visiting Associate Professor, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.

Cost: Admission is Free.

RSVP: Seats are limited; first come, first served; kindly register your interest in attending http://goo.gl/GdRGDE

Contact: lkyschoolevents@nus.edu.sg

SYNOPSIS • After the North Atlantic Financial Crisis, Dr. Posen argues that we are returning to a world much more like the late 19th than the 20th century, at least in economic terms. In his view, this is a world where globalization continues but is less rules-based than it was under clearer US hegemony. This is a world in which the poor countries are likely to continue to catch up with the rich, and probably do so even faster, but the richer countries are likely to grow more slowly. This is a world in which macroeconomic conditions are bumpier in real terms, sustained inflation is rare, and multiple reserve currencies will emerge.

Harvard “Building Sustainable Cities: Finance and Innovation” by Harvard Business School Faculty John Macomber

Monday, 02 Jun, 2014 19:00 - 21:00
Tower Club, Board Room, Singapore, 9 Raffles Place, Board Room, Penthouse (62nd Floor), Republic Plaza Tower 1, Singapore 048619

As the world urbanizes and water and energy grow more dear, the private sector will have new opportunities to finance, build, and operate the components of new cities around the world. Governments in most nations – and in most cities - have capabilities quite different than those in Singapore. The private sector needs to step in and fill the capabilities gap. Product companies, real estate companies, infrastructure companies, planners and investors export pieces of the Singapore model in industry already. How can this best be done in the built environment? Join us to discuss how to segment markets, contain project and country risks, leverage technology, and select the offerings that can scale up, replicate, make money (and make a difference) in new and growing global cities serving hundreds of millions of people.

Cost: $30

RSVP: events@harvardclub.sg for registration

John Macomber is a Senior Lecturer in the Finance unit at Harvard Business School. His professional background is in real estate and construction. Courses include “Innovation in Business, Energy and Environment” and “Building Cities: Infrastructure and Sustainability.” His work includes cities ranging from Singapore to Suzhou to Sao Paolo -- and from Mexico to Mumbai -- and companies ranging from infotech startups to multinational heavy equipment to real estate. Join us for this interactive discussion about the models, frameworks, steps, and best practices for private sector intervention in building sustainable cities.

Seminar: Program Management vs Project Management by Professor Mark Gershon, PhD. Temple University

Wednesday, 07 May, 2014 19:00 - 21:00
IEEC premises (75 Bukit Timah Road)

The classic view of a program is that it is a big project, bigger than a project, but still basically a project. The difference is that the program is such a big project that parts of it are projects themselves. This requires the use of a project manager for each of those smaller projects, who then report to the project manager for the larger project. We call that person the program manager. Are you ready to assume the leadership role in program management? Is your company employing the right person to assume this bigger role? Attend this Session to hear from Professor Mark Gershon as he discusses on what it takes to be a successful leader in program management.

Cost: $20 for pre-registered guest; $30 at the door

The images depicted what was seen in the streets and beyond, from large events such as disasters and accidents, to daily routine and traditional customs. The stark simplicity of the images made them accessible to audience and was relatively cheap to produce. This talk will explore the work of five prominent Singaporean artists who used woodblock techniques to reflect on history, change and the reality of the times during the 1950s and 60s.

How should we judge Barack Obama¹s foreign policy as he approaches the midpoint of his second term? And how does he compare to his predecessors in his approach to the world and to Asia? In this lecture, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Fredrik Logevall places Obama¹s foreign policy in historical context, with particular attention to the enduring legacy of the Wilsonian call to make the world "safe for democracy."

The talk will be chaired by Mr Donald Low, Associate Dean (Executive Education and Research) & Senior Fellow, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy. Synopsis: We are taught from childhood that life is one long contest: if you aren't top of your class or your year, you won't win the game of life. A competitive ethos characterises everything we do: business, medicine, sport, science, entertainment. But what are the costs of this perpetual contest? Does it really bring out the best in everyone? Are competitive markets always the most efficient? Is there a more productive way that we could all work together - and if so, what does it require?

Seminar: How am I doing? Developing life-long learners (and outstanding employees) through effective performance feedback practices by Dr. Deanna Geddes

Wednesday, 12 Feb, 2014 19:00
Venue: ERAU Seminar Room (75 Bukit Timah Road, 02-01/02, Boon Siew Building)

Lifelong learning is synonymous with self-regulated learning, meaning one’s willingness and ability to learn and adapt throughout one’s life. The positive relationship between continuous learning and improved performance is at the heart of management education as well as the management function. It is important for those interested in business to develop an ability to sense how well their efforts yield favorable results if they want to succeed. Self-monitoring and feedback-seeking (and feedback-providing) strategies can serve as vehicles to promote critical reflection that will help establish logical connections between one’s activities at work with subsequent outcomes. Enhancing abilities and inclinations to self-monitor/self-regulate--using reliable performance information sources (e.g., self, peers, mentors, managers, and available performance data--allows individuals to improve their future growth and success in all achievement contexts, academic or professional.

Cost: $20 for pre-registered guest; $30 at the door

RSVP: info@ieec.edu.sg; http://www.temple.sg/event-registration

• Understanding the complexity of communication • Recognizing successful managers adopt a “receiver-oriented” view of effective communication and act as coaches, not cops • Learning ways to enhance employee perceptions of “fair & accurate” performance feedback • Identifying message forms that increase employee acceptance and illustrate manager support • Learning the “open-faced sandwich” script for providing negative feedback and constructive direction This seminar is part of the Knowledge Leadership Series organized by the International Executive Education Center (IEEC).

As a single currency shared by 17 of the European Union’s Member States, the Euro has made doing business in Europe a lot easier. Europe is using the momentum to become stronger and to focus on sustainable and inclusive growth. Since Asia went through similar developments, Europe was able to benefit from the lessons learned here.

*SCAPE, #04-01, HubQuarters, The Situation Room, Singapore 237978

All the designs that appear on Chinese furniture, ceramics, textiles, jewellery and virtually every other object found in the Chinese world has a meaning - a meaning that is invisible to those untrained in decoding their linguistic foundation or cultural history. Come and learn why bats and spiders represent good luck, peonies riches and glory, and a bowl of apples a wish for peace. Our speaker, Patricia Bjaaland Welch, is the author of the popular reference guide Chinese Art: A Guide to Motifs and Visual Imagery (Tuttle, 2008) and a well-known speaker and tour guide in Asia and abroad.

The recent focus of the American pivot to the east, Myanmar is set to play out as the next growth market with strategic importance for China and the US. Since President Thein Sein came to power, the political and economic transition has led to greater transparency in the government, as well as a greater presence of market forces in the country’s economy. However, the timeframe of the reforms is clearly dictated by the 2015 parliamentary elections. What is the current state of play in Myanmar politics? What are the possible scenarios for the elections in 2015? What are the prospects of Myanmar’s economy leading to 2015 and beyond? Please join the Harvard Club of Singapore for this interesting presentation. Light dinner and refreshments will be served.

Cost: $25

A regular political commentator, he is often asked to provide background briefings to visiting executives to help them better understand political, economic, cultural and business developments in the region.
