WHY WE SHOULD CARE ABOUT EVERYDAY INNOVATION with

  • Bidyut Dumra, Head of Innovation, DBS
  • Jess Tang, Total Brand Experience Innovation Lead, Johnson & Johnson
  • Anne Lehman, Innovation Manager, BlueSG

Moderated by Kelvin Tan, Director, Corporate Partnership, NUS Enterprise

Innovation has changed our lives – from purchasing a pair of jeans and ordering food, to using AI for travelling and working on cloud. Companies, regardless of the industry, must constantly think out of the box to meet evolving daily news of their customers, and essentially to own a sustainable business. The discussion explores the prevalence of innovation and how companies are wrapping their minds around the new frontiers of creativity and innovation.
