The Future Economy & Me


Preparing Your Company, Career and Children for a Fast Approaching Technologically Powered and Digitally Disrupted Future

"Old models are not working, new models are coming thick and fast, and we're having to adjust and to keep up, because of technology and globalisation. And the disruption will happen over and over again, relentlessly," said Prime Minister Lee at the National Day Rally 2016.

According to many experts, the world is facing rapidly accelerating change and will be drastically transformed in the next 15 years. Robots, smart drones, autonomous vehicles and emerging forms of artificial intelligence will take centrestage in the global economy, disrupting many existing industries, businesses and jobs.

In this new intelligence-based economy, machines will become infinitely smarter and more connected than they are today, fundamentally changing the way we live, work and play. Numerous studies from respected institutions are predicting that many of today’s industries will be disrupted, companies eliminated and jobs automated within the coming decades.

At the same time, this Fourth Industrial Revolution (a term coined by World Economic Forum) will also create new types of economic opportunities, which will require remarkably different mindsets, strategies and capabilities.

How will this future of economy, business, work and jobs look like? Who are the winners and losers in the new paradigm? Most importantly, how can you prepare your company, career and children to succeed in this future economy?

Join us to find out before it’s too late!

We are at the beginning of a revolution that is fundamentally changing the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope and complexity, what I consider to be the fourth industrial revolution is unlike anything humankind has experienced before. We are witnessing profound shifts across all industries, marked by the emergence of new business models, the disruption of incumbents and the reshaping of production, consumption, transportation and delivery systems.

Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Chairman of World Economic Forum and Author of The Fourth Industrial Revolution
