IMD business school brings Orchestrating Winning Performance to island resort
SINGAPORE – September 29, 2015 – For the third consecutive year, IMD, a top-ranked business school and worldwide expert in executive education, plans to welcome more than 100 senior executives for its leadership program Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) in Singapore.
The program will take place November 16 – 20 at Capella, a business hotel and resort located on Sentosa Island. Moving the program to Capella was done to intensify the focus on learning. "Executives need a place where they can disconnect from the issues of everyday in order to fully focus on leading tomorrow," said IMD professor Mike Wade, co-director of the OWP program. "Capella makes for an inspiring retreat location, much like the IMD campus in Lausanne."
The lessons given at OWP will be unique to business opportunities and challenges seen in Asia.
Keynote presentations include: David Lim, Leader of the 1st Singapore Everest Expedition, on the challenges of change; Sunny George Verghese, CEO of the OLAM Group and Chairman of the Human Capital Leadership Institute, on growing a business responsibly; and Steven MacGregor, Founder of The Leadership Academy of Barcelona on improving physical and mental performance.
During the week, Arturo Bris, Director of the IMD World Competitiveness Center will also release the second annual World Talent Report, presenting a ranking of countries on their ability to develop, attract and retain talent.
Designed to develop leadership capabilities, OWP will explore a wide range of topics including branding, digital business, emerging markets, family business, finance, governance, and innovation.
"Leadership is one of the most important and scarce resources that companies must wrestle with in the coming years," said Margaret Cording, IMD's Regional Director in Southeast Asia and Oceania. "OWP Singapore, as well as executive education programs hosted in our Southeast Asia Executive Learning Center, provide opportunities for executives to develop strategies for successful, long-term growth."
IMD delivers programs and services from key locations around the world. Since 2013, Singapore has become an important hub for IMD's executive education offering.
