Brown Bag @ one-north / Science Park Series

[4 Mar – one-north] Leveraging IoT for Business Transformation – NUS ISS

Speaker:
Dr. Sarita Singh
Senior Lecturer & Consultant
Institute of Systems Science, NUS

Synopsis:
The Internet of Things will be the defining technology trend of the new decade and will impact virtually every industry vertical, permeating into a vast majority of business processes. The future Internet will comprise not only of millions of computing and software services but also trillions of smart, digitized objects, thereby making IoT the most important component of digital transformation. The session focuses on how IoT realizations can enable, drive, accelerate businesses, create/change opportunities and thus ensure, enhance productivity and care of consumers and organizations.

[11 Mar – Science Park] Workplace Collaboration: Enhancing Team Communication with NLP – Peacemakers

Speaker:
Professor Joel Lee
Training and Development Advisor
Peacemakers Consulting Services

Synopsis:
In the name of efficiency and productivity, the people connection is often neglected in the workplace. Yet, most of our work environments require us to interact with and connect with other people. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is the study of how humans take in, store and process information. Understanding NLP will assist participants in communicating and connecting with others more effectively. Through presentations, stories and activities, this session will introduce participants to the NLP Communication Model, the 4 Rules of Communication and the Systemic Rapport Model with the goal giving participants some tools that they can immediately apply.

[4 Mar – one-north] Leveraging IoT for Business Transformation – NUS ISS

Speaker:
Associate Professor Arlindo Silva
Engineering Product Development (EPD)
Singapore University of Technology and Design

Synopsis:
Innovation and Design are two frequently (mis)used words in almost any context. However, they are still very meaningful to both academy and industry, regardless of sector. This talk will touch on several misinterpretations of the words “Design” and “Innovation” and will convey a more meaningful way of discussing, analyzing and implementing strategies.

Innovation by design embraces a new paradigm where design innovation crosses every discipline, domain and sector, not just in the somewhat superficial “design thinking” kind of way, but going deep into the processes that companies use to develop their products and services. Examples of research currently under development in the MEng in Innovation by Design at SUTD will be presented.

[27 Mar – Science Park] Building Resilience in the Workplace – HeadHunt

Speaker:
Dr Mei’en Lim
Clinical Psychologist, PhD

Synopsis:
We spend approximately a third of our life at work. The consequence of burnout and stress can overflow into other areas of our lives such as family, friendships, and health. Resilience is the ability to adapt and respond to workplace stresses. In this seminar, we will learn to build resilience while at work through developing new habits and strategies.
