Enhance Your Communication with Colors! (2 PDUs)

Online Live: 23 Sep 2020 (Wed), 8 pm to 10 pm
Synopsis

Some colors are meant to be outrages and some are so gloomy and they are actually affecting your emotions. Some colors are nice for a presentation session and some not. Why do some brand logos need to use that particular color?
Colors are communicating with us but we are too used to its existence and always overlook the message. We will take a look about colors of buildings, surroundings, costume, and also our personality in this event.

With the advent of the electronics and semiconductor technology for automotive use, today's modern vehicles not only many folds more efficient than their predecessors, but it is also a state-of-art innovation masterpiece that provides us with commuting convenience.  Modern cars' mechanics are now relying more on their OBD-II computer diagnostic tools, rather than the screw-drivers, spanners and wrenchers of their mechanical predecessors. As we welcome the dawn of smart connected and autonomous vehicle, there are a series of technical challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve a reliable and successful roll-out.  
This talk will illuminate on the evolution of vehicle electronics from the replacement of carburettors with fuel injectors, to the introduction of embedded controller based ABS, EBD, cruise controls, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and smart autonomous and connected vehicles.

LTE - Is your workforce ready to innovate the next? 
(Complimentary, 2 PDUs)

Online Live: 6 May - Wednesday, 11.00am - 12.00pm
Synopsis:

Well, it’s definitely not 5G as next. We are referring to the Low-Touch Economy (LTE), or no-touch economy. Coronavirus has successfully transformed the whole world overnight and fundamentally shifted everyone to the new normal. It has turned many industries upside down, and disrupted many economies. The road ahead is not going to be your business as usual (BAU). You need to get rid of the BAU. How? 

Innovate !  Innovate !  Innovate!  There is no better time than now.  

Innovation is imperative for any organisation or function to add values to its customers and stakeholders. Undoubtedly the capability to innovate and to bring innovation successfully to market will be a crucial determinant of the global competitiveness of organisations over the LTE and coming decade. Every organisation, large or small, mature or start-up, must continuously drive for performance improvements, profit and growth through innovation.

You probably came across the word “innovation” at your workplace, journal articles, social media, and business news. Everyone talks about it!  The internet is abuzz with it. What exactly is innovation ? How do you build the talent pool?  Join us to find out.
