NEWS: Lecture At Swinburne

CATEGORY: News   |   

Thinkscape Group’s John Jong was one of the guest lecturers who shared about entrepreneurship and leadership with aspiring talents at the Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak.

At the event The Journey from Classroom to Boardroom: #askswinpreneur Forum 2015, John spoke about the importance of leadership, creativity and agility of individuals within small teams. This was followed by a leadership workshop that exposed the students to hands-on experience in competitive team collaboration. Also sharing at the session was James Lau, the executive director of Instarmac Group who showed a sneak peak at an authentic, exciting destination to take shape in Kuching.

Earlier in the lecture, John shared on the topic of “small is the new big”. He pointed out that today, bigger no longer means better. In many parts of the modern society, we increasingly witness how our reality is powered by many networks of agile, responsive people who adapts well to changes – turning free flowing ideas, speed of change and coordination into powerful competitive advantage and opportunities.  Along with this phenomenon we see how the traditional concept of “being a boss” is fast becoming extinct, replaced by the mastery of hands-on leadership, sense of co-ownership and synergistic collaboration.

The event was held on 8 May 2015 organised by the university’s Kuching campus and moderated by Datuk (Dr) Philip Ting, Swinburne Sarawak Council and Board member. Other speakers at the forum were Comtec Solar International managing director, Isabel Kow; Techninier Sdn Bhd CEO, Dato’ Lion Peh; JFDI Asia co-founder Hugh Mason and Metamorphic Training managing director and chief trainer, Rhoda Yap.

This latest participation is one of a host of active giving backs from Thinkscape Design Group. We frequently share knowledge, opinions and insights with business and student communities, in events such as those posted here, here and here.
