During the talk on “NEW BUSINESS MODELS FOR NEW REALITIES” Dr Chew expounded on how the economic development of countries worldwide, has transformed tremendously. Successful companies of the past may not continue to be successful in view of continual disruptive drivers in the changing marketplace. Disruptive innovations have brought about new market norms. The future of companies depends in its ability to be innovative and that is why businesses must go beyond the push for greater productivity into the realms of value creation.

Alumni and students thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from the stimulating and lively talk by Dr Chew and had an enjoyable evening exchanging views and ideas with him and their MBA colleagues.
