Outlook for China and Southeast Asia – Internationalisation in New Normal with Professional Conversion Programme (PCP) 22 July 2021, Thursday

Time: 10am to 11.20am
After the sharp declines in business activities globally due to COVID-19 pandemic last year, the global growth outlook in 2021 is much brighter, led by China, US and developed economies, due to copious fiscal stimulus, accelerated vaccine rollout, better disease prevention and control, and adapting to “a new normal”.

And even as both the US and China are on their recovery paths, they each face own challenges at home, and the US-China relationship is yet another uncertainty. Southeast Asia will benefit from a recovering US and China through trade and investment channels, while changes in markets and supply chain configuration will continue in view of the uncertain US-China relationship, presenting new opportunities and risks for the region.

Join us in this webinar to understand how to tap on the government funded PCP for Internationalisation Professionals to break into new markets by building up a pool of skilled Internationalisation Managers with practical skills, attune to the post COVID-19 internationalisation landscape.

Business Model Innovation & Franchising Business Model 23 July 2021, Friday

Time: 3pm to 4.30pm
Enterprises need to constantly innovate their business models to stay relevant and competitive. We have seen how businesses failed over the decades as they could not keep up with competition or unable to address changing customers’ needs in time to sustain revenue growth.

What is business model innovation (BMI) and how does it help companies to stay relevant?
Supported by UOB, this webinar aims to address the importance of BMI and provide examples of business models which enterprises can deploy in redefining their values to stay relevant.

Hear from our guest speaker from the Franchising & Licensing Association (Singapore) as he shares the framework of franchising as a business model for companies to expand their businesses across countries.
