Seminar: The Best versus the Rest in New Product Development by Dr. Anthony Di Benedetto
WEDNESDAY, 12 MAR, 2014 19:00
VENUE: IEEC PREMISES (75 BUKIT TIMAH ROAD)
Most firms recognize the importance of new products to their competitiveness and their bottom line. But what is it that the best firms do, and what can managers from other firms learn about the best practices employed by these firms? Also, what have been the most recent trends in new product development (NPD), and how has this process changed in recent years? The most recent study coming from the industry states that less than 25% of companies surveyed have both NPD success and sales and profits generated by new products.
Cost: $20 for pre-registered guest; $30 at the door

Cornell Thought Leaders: Obama and the world in historical perspective featuring 2013 Pulitzer Prize winner Fred Logevall
SATURDAY, 05 APR, 2014 19:30 – 20:30
FULLERTON HOTEL, STRAITS ROOM
As a world power, the United States retains unmatched reservoirs of strength, and no other nation seems likely to replace it at the pinnacle of the world heap any time soon. Yet it’s also true that the US is in relative decline and that it faces hard choices in several areas abroad, not least in Asia. How should we judge Barack Obama¹s foreign policy as he approaches the midpoint of his second term? And how does he compare to his predecessors in his approach to the world and to Asia? In this lecture, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Fredrik Logevall places Obama¹s foreign policy in historical context, with particular attention to the enduring legacy of the Wilsonian call to make the world “safe for democracy.”
Cost: US$35 early bird rate!
RSVP: Please forward inquiries to cornellclubsg@gmail.com
Networking starts at 6.30pm. Refreshments and canapes will be served. Register here now!
