2017 is lining up to be a great year for businesses with opportunities aplenty for companies seeking to invest, innovate and transform themselves. Despite several recent uncertainties that have mired global economics, Singaporean businesses continue to adopt a dogged attitude towards new challenges and remain bullish in this new age of disruption. Singapore’s economic policies have been put through their paces and the results are paying off. Employment rates, per capita income levels and public infrastructure investments continue to rise. Grants and schemes are continually introduced to enhance worker skills and improve productivity.
Next year is expected to mark a new dawn for many SMEs and home-grown businesses as they embark on investment and acquisition strategies to expand their market footprint. Simultaneously, business leaders are gaining momentum when it comes to embracing digitalisation and ingraining innovation in their organisation’s culture.
Moderators from RSM will join distinguished business leaders to share insights on the latest business trends and explore cutting-edge strategies for investment-driven growth and innovation adoption. Join us to usher in 2017 as the start of the age of disruptors.
