Merger as an SMEs Strategy to Combat a Crisis
Free preview
The merger of companies is not limited to public companies only, it is also applicable to SMEs. In fact, SMEs have abetter chance to grow and compete if they can be merged as one stronger and bigger company. With combined resources and strengths, the merged company can reduce overhead, improve efficiency and gain a bigger market share, improving both top and bottom lines.

The biggest challenge would be to merge the complementary and synergistic SMEs as one. Most of them are not professionally managed and may not even have proper accounting. Engaging a boutique investment bank or perhaps a corporate finance experienced individual to drive the process might have a higher chance of putting a few SMEs together.

In this pandemic which is not going away soon, it is important for SMEs to look at the option of merger to be a stronger company to survive through this period. The selection of merger candidates is undoubtedly important as by merging 3-4 complementary SMEs will produce a more complete and stronger company.

Once there is a stronger, bigger and more complete company, it increases the possibility of raising funds from VC or PE and an exit either through IPO or trade sales is possible.
Financial Crisis Management for SMEs - UNACOV Crisis Management Webinar

Global safe distancing measures and supply chain disruptions result in drastic reduction of demand from customers and slow payments.

In this webinar, two financial experts will share with you useful insights and tips to improve your business and personal financial situation in these challenging times.

● How to tap on government support measures
● What do banks look for when lending
● How to show you are a viable business

Turning Stress into Positive Energy - UNACOV Well-Being Webinar
Free preview
"If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full-speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race."
Oprah Winfrey

More often than not, people get stressed out when deadlines loom and the mountain of work seems to be getting higher. However, contrary to popular belief: it’s never about the amount of work per se; the stress comes from a feeling of having lost control.

Stress can dampen staff morale, reduce productivity and lead to depression and anxiety. Yet we all need a certain degree of stress in order to achieve peak performance.

In this workshop, you will learn what are the four factors; Perspective, Autonomy, Connectiveness and Tone, that cause stress, and how to restore balance and turn that “stress” into positive energy to help you perform better and achieve greater success and happiness in life.
Create Changing Career Perspectives - UNACOV Career Webinar
Free preview
Despite the progressive roll back of the Singapore’s Circuit Breaker in June 2020 that allows majority if not all of businesses to resume operations, the outlook for many organizations is still highly uncertain.

A recent survey by SSON in collaboration with Edgeverve, Assistedge and Infosys-BPM Ltd points out that businesses report 30% increase in delayed collection of sales revenue, 14% increase in cost of operations and 20% increase in gaps in back office service delivery. These statistics reiterate the difficulties for many businesses in “returning to normal” which in turn could impact hiring decisions and employment opportunities.

Among the working population, PMETs (Professionals, Managers, Executives and Technicians) forming more than 50% of the Singapore’s workforce is the group that faces greater risk to redundancy and retrenchment based on past years’ evidence.

The webinar shares strategies for PMETs on:

1. How to rise above this environment of uncertainty and volatility
2. How to differentiate themselves from the crowd at the workplace
3. What to do in times of such business uncertainty and employment risks
4. What are the the possible action plans if your employment has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic

Redesign Your Life Through Clarity - UNACOV Career Webinar
Free preview
Synopsis
“Like a diamond, the more clarity we have, the more value we bring.” - Ruth Saw

The current world is changing so rapidly that it causes one to compare, compete or even get confused. How do we navigate life effectively through change and yet step into a fulfilling, satisfying life?
Clarity is key. It is the future of ‘personal authority’. Finding clarity has become a necessity, not a good-to-have. Just like shooting an arrow, we pull back to find clarity so that we can propel forward with speed. More than ever, we need to look within to find that clarity.

COVID-19 has given us this opportunity to settle and find the clarity we need, to create the future we want. Clarity will free us from comparing ourselves with others. It will help us to move past our doubts to step into our destiny.

In this webinar, you’ll find simple exercises to understand yourself and practical insights on finding clarity that leads to action.


Discover how to:

Know yourself, your possible strengths and blind-spots

Influence others just the way you are

Uncover your why

Create a clear path of action and maximise your time

Feel liberated and find the confidence to be who you are meant to be!

“Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man” is a phrase that has evolved over centuries to describe the observation that, often, the right leader emerges from the crowd to suit the challenge at hand.

We explored the phenomenal changes that have occurred - even in the last six months - to what is needed in new leadership:

Handling slippery supply chains that are whimsically upset by political decisions
- Rewarding a workforce getting daily offers of alternative jobs
- Making the disciplines of sustainability and diversity coexist with law and order
- Educating all employed people in technology, regulatory compliance, compatibility

How Blockchain Technology is Transforming Business & Society
Free preview
If data is the new oil and with many businesses focusing on data accumulation for deep analysis to be done for goods and services, stronger cyber-security will be needed more than ever.

Blockchain is no longer just about cryptocurrency. There have been many cases of data security breaches that business leaders are now considering blockchain to become the backbone for many new emerging technologies like AI, IoT, VR/AR to be implemented in smart solutions and products.

However, there are concerns over the data storage being decentralized and transparent. Therefore the industry has been building enterprise solutions for consortiums and companies that are suitable for their needs. This talk will cover the various blockchain solutions that exist today and the use cases to create Industry 4.0 that is rapidly coming our way.
The session will be beneficial for business leaders to prepare their cybersecurity strategy and have a glimpse of how blockchain can shape businesses in the era of Industry 4.0.

Takatoshi Shibayama is a futurist and the founder of Blockshine SG. He advises industry leaders and built customized enterprise blockchain solutions.

He is also the host of Future Design Podcast where he converses with visionaries in sustainability technology and spirituality.
Prior to this, he was an analyst and investor of distressed corporate situations for 17 years, starting his career with investment banks such as JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs, later joining a US hedge fund Davidson Kempner Capital Management, and co-founding 3D Investment Partners in Singapore, with nearly US$1B in AUM.

Educating our next generation
Free preview
We face an epidemic of diseases of the modernized society, diseases of both the body and the mind: cancer, heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, autoimmune, autism, ADHD, chronic stress & anxiety, and depression. The ongoing pandemic is just the latest example of a world that’s increasingly treacherous and evermore volatile.


For those with the right knowledge and skills, digitalization and globalization are liberating and exciting; meanwhile, for those who are insufficiently prepared or lack access, they can mean vulnerability at work and insecurity in life with few positive prospects for a promising future.


The future is indeed more chaotic and unpredictable than ever. How can we better prepare our next generation for this seemingly unknown future - for their own sake? This future will require a bold vision, greater imagination, elevated empathy, collective resilience, and an entrepreneurial mindset, with the ability to experiment and fail - and fail forward. Is it possible to change anything as big, and complex as education - as the future, our children’s future, depends on it?
Growing Up with ADHD
