Peace & Privacy In A Pod
James Paul Pilande
Brand Director (Exstopod), Exsto Asia Pte Ltd
An open office space can be noisy and somewhat distracting, most of the time collective conversation within an enclosed space can create an intolerable experience when you are trying to focus on work or just simply want some peace of mind. Acoustic Pods are single or multi-person private spaces suitable for making important calls, focus on work, discussions, and short relaxations. We believe that a quiet and comfortable space will increase employees' productivity in the modern busy office environment.

Future Proof Your Business
Brand Strategist, Broc Consulting
As the saying goes "If you are not a brand, you are a commodity."
Brand building is widely acknowledged as an effective tool to help businesses win customers and achieve long term profitability. However, many people lack a clear understanding of what branding entails, resulting in haphazard and incoherent efforts. Worse, some companies see "content marketing" or "social media" as the panacea to building strong brands and were flabbergasted when returns do not commensurate with the resources invested.
In this talk, Ms. Catherine Chai, veteran Brand Strategist, will share with you best practices on how to brand your product, service, and business successfully, and future proof your business with a strong brand!
|2.15PM - 2.55PM||

Principal Business Advisor, SME Centre@Central
A brand represents the identity of your product or service that you offer. It helps your customers to recall your offerings in times when they make reorders.

Have you ever wondered how you can enhance your clients' perception of your brand positively and develop brand loyalty? Join us in this workshop that addresses the importance of a brand and appreciate its development and upkeep. The speaker will also discuss execution of a brand audit to identify gaps and suggest ways to close them. Simple case studies will be surfaced to elaborate the key messages to the audience.

Future-Proof via Deep Human Technologies
Founder, WholeTree Foundation
The implications of an exponential future for everyone will be highly disruptive, truly transformative, and earth shaking - it is one that is unmatched in human history. There are several questions that are paramount for us to ask - as individuals, as parents, as a society, and collectively as the human race.
Will computers take over the world (no longer in the realm of science fiction) and how soon? Will we lose control of our own destiny? What is our destiny in this brave new world? Is there something if anything we can do to remain relevant - and even more importantly - to reassert our role as the creative masters of our destiny, and of our world?
The answer - perhaps surprisingly (or not) - lives in every one of us. Join Yen-Lu as he explores this brave new world of machines and humans living side-by-side - into the world of Deep Human.
