    B. Keynote | Making innovation happen: a perspective from New Zealand

    Speaker: Mr. Ben Burrowes - Regional Director - Asia, Education New Zealand (ENZ)

    Everyone knows innovation is a long process. But how long and what does it take to see the success are tricky questions, especially when it comes to making innovation the common vision across the country's enterprises. The keynote from representative from Education New Zealand could unveil some of the secret sauce making Kiwi businesses better and better at change and innovation:

    • How much focus should be placed on change amid other business requirements? 
    • How can innovation help businesses to gain the edge over competitors?
    • What are common traps of complexity-innovation relationship that baffle the business results?

    Moderator: Mr. Tony Dang Quoc Tuan - Managing Director of Talentnet Singapore, Head of Total Business Solutions, Talentnet Corporation

    As leaders and their companies venture into new places, they will be left with two options: to re-adjust the plan based on each newfound idea sidetracking the risks, or to steel their resolve to push through all noise and risk leaving the organization crumbled. Either way, there are core principles, mostly "ugly" truths that will be discussed by C-suite leaders to manage the pain in the backside process of change in business:

    • How much focus should be placed on change amid other business requirements?
    • How can innovation help businesses to gain the edge over competitors?

    • Ms. Tran Thi Ai Lien - CHRO, AIA Vietnam

    • Mr. Abhishek Mathur - Founder & Managing Partner, Potential Lab Ltd.

    Moderator: Ms. Nguyen Thi Thanh Huong - Deputy CEO, Talentnet Corporation


    Diversifying workforce, processes, and more are the trends of business these days. We cannot deny that the increasing complexity of organization is also an environment generating more groundbreaking ideas, which in turn fosters innovation. However, when it comes to implementing change, high level of complexity can become the force that slows down the process as it requires much more time for validation. HR is placed in the dilemma of dancing along to the context of complexity, yet finding a way to streamline innovation process. This long-term journey even requires a communication approach where everyone, either in their junior or senior roles, could feel comfortable to speak and be heard. 

    Stick with our leading change drivers as they play with the concept and find the best-fit answers towards below concerns: 

    • In the era of technology, data analytics, and innovation as nowadays, what defines a workforce strategy distinctively relevant?
    • When complexity is too much for a good thing like innovation?
    • How to generate the interplay among change, innovation, process, and workforce for optimal result?

    Moderator: Ms. Nguyen Thi An Ha - Head of Marketing & Strategic Partnership, Talentnet Corporation

    Do you think HR only needs to upgrade the conventional technical skills required to operate HR tasks? The bad news is no. HR in the world full of disruptive forces will need to acquire more skills outside of their usual zones.

    Get ready to rumble with our panel of diverse experience in Marketing and Digital expertise as they shed a light on the shape and size of the rebirthed HR skillsets beyond the norms.

    Moderator: Ms. Ly Ngoc Tran - Head of HR Outsourcing Services, Talentnet Corporation

    Workforce management is a comprehensive ecosystem of reskills & upskills, rewards, working environment, and employee engagement, plus an agile management model. You would think that with a world swarmed with technologies, adopting those into HR operations is the only way to success. But do HR really need to have a physical technological platform to efficiently manage HR operations? As technology-based operations are easily obsolete when newer ones come out, there are more options, or mixed options, to advance HR operation models effectively.

    Let's refresh your assumption on the so-called next-gen HR operation models. The panel of stellar strategic leaders will share their own versions of successful HR operation models, whether with or without technology platforms amid a digital-based context.

    Speaker: Mr. William Trippe Polese - Global Director, Udemy New Ventures U.S.


    Innovation is hardly called forth by external factors, but usually is enabled from inside the organization.
