How Deep Is The Talent Pool?

wwc 011221 talent

THE regular WED WEB CHAT discussion series explored the talent pool available in Singapore, and if it was adequate for the future.

While Singapore executives are well-regarded at home, there is a reluctance on the part of many to travel abroad to gain exposure. This impedes their growth in global companies that want an international mindset when helming multi-national corporations.

The National University of Singapore has made it to the top 10 of some university lists, which underlines the education system’s ability to produce competent talent.

But when you consider how so many Indian nationals are heading global companies like Google, Twitter, Autodesk, you wonder if there is enough of a practical connection between education and business smarts.

What are the ways we can nurture local talent to fulfil a greater role in Singapore and abroad.

This WED WEB CHAT — The Quest For Talent brings together established practitioners and trainers in a discussion that offers insights and tips, ranging from a willingness to go abroad to creating your own blog. Panellists for the session are Arun Devan, Brindha Bal and Ng Kheng Liang, who have between them, experience with organisations like Hitachi, IBM, Korn Ferry, Temasek International, Dyson and many others.
