Conference Highlights

Opening Keynote: Geoffrey K. See, Founder & Managing Director, Chosen Exchange

"Bringing Bain & Co. to Pyongyang"

Providing economics and entrepreneurship training in North Korea is no easy task and a thankless job. One gets to live through purges, intrigue and most painfully, constant parental nagging. Why leave the cushy corporate world, take a 90% pay cut, and put one's life on the line to run Choson Exchange, a non-profit operating in North Korea?

Panel: Finding Non-Traditional Jobs in Large Traditional MNCs
  • Rajitha Vinnikota, Head of Citizenship & Community Development, Citi
  • Clair Deevy, Regional Citizenship Marketing Manager for APAC, Microsoft
Workshop: Audacious Experiments
  • Sital Ruparelia, Talent Acquisition, Microsoft
  • Having lived in Europe & Asia, Sital has seen it all. He knows there's more than one way to be successful in your career as a talent management expert. Through hands-on, interactive experiments, he will kick-start our afternoon of turning inspiration into action.
Workshop: How to be Audacious!
  • Hak-Peng Chng, Leadership Coach & Managing Partner, Devaro Partners
  • Get rid of your fears and understand what is holding you back. Understand the true meaning of being audacious from those who've been on the road less travelled and see what success really looks like.
Tour: Behind the Scenes @ Microsoft
  • Be a part of conducted small group tours that will guide you through the offices of Microsoft Singapore. You'll have the chance to check-out the new Xbox, Surface 2, and most importantly, see how Microsoft is turning itself around and rekindling its entrepreneurial spirit.

Closing Keynote: Anastasia Vrachnos, Dean of International & Professional Experience, Yale-NUS

Lenses of Possiblity

From teaching in poverty stricken Yogyakarta, to media training for the United Nations, to being an investment banker for Morgan Stanley, Dean Vrachnos still isn't satisfied. With her trusty wide-angle lenses, she went on to document Indonesia's democracy transition and Timor-Leste transition to independence. Is there still anything she hasn't done?
