After Breakfast @ Asia Insight Circle: Paid to Think with David Goldsmith

Have you ever thought about the fact that a craftsman has more and better tools to solve challenges on the job than the leader of a business or organisation does?

In Paid to Think, international consultant David Goldsmith presents his groundbreaking approach to leadership and management, based on research revealing the 12 specific activities that all leaders perform on a daily basis, and he provides you with each activity’s accompanying tools and instructions proven to boost your performance and that of your entire organisation.

Take the uncertainty out of everyday leading, convert ideas to realities, and maximise your intellectual value. 

Learn how decision-makers at some of the world’s most successful organisations have already used Paid to Think‘s universal and easily transferable tools – regardless of their industries, sectors, geographic locations, or management levels – as their greatest advantages in achieving more, earning more, and living more.

City of Protest – Podcast with Antony Dapiran

Our focus is Hong Kong and our podcast features Antony Dapiran, author of City of Protest: A Recent History of Dissent in Hong Kong.

“Hong Kong is a city with a long history of civil disobedience.”

So begins the book blurb on Amazon.com for a now-sold-out book published in July 2017. It was a timeless observation on the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s Handover. It is a timely observation today with most in Hong Kong wondering what’s next.

“We are on the cusp of what could be a general breakdown of law and order. It hasn’t gotten there yet, but the government hasn’t done anything to stop it,” said Antony Dapiran in The New York Times on 5 August 2019,

“City of Protest is a compelling look at the often-fraught relationship between politics and belonging, and a city’s struggle to assert itself.”

Listen to Antony as we discuss the changes and challenges facing Hong Kong today. You can follow him on Twitter @AntD.

Pre-Briefing Book: The Future of Work

Warp speed developments in technology – automation, artificial intelligence and the arrival of the sharing economy – are transforming how we work. Beyond technology, traditional working patterns are also being disrupted. 

World Economic Forum 

The future of work is one of the hottest management topics of the day. This complex subject is broken into three main categories, according to a podcast from McKinsey: automation, changing models (think gig), and income stagnation/equality.

What will jobs alongside machines look like? What do we need to do – as organisations and as individuals – to prepare for these wide-ranging scenarios. How do you get ready? 

Change is a constant, so flexibility and creativity are of paramount importance. Be prepared for the future of work. 

We’re honoured to have three top-notch professionals to dive in and pull apart our topic: 

Our event is moderated by member David Ketchum, CEO, Current Asia and hosted by Santo Rizzuto, Director, Asia Insight Circle.

Apologies from Walter Jennings as he is travelling from Madrid after speaking at #DES19 (Digital Enterprise Show).
