PODEX XVI

Starting Out and Starting Up: Lessons from Start-Ups in the Silicon Valley and Dialogue on Starting Out in People and Organisation Development

What's it like turning an idea into a start-up? What are the common pitfalls experienced? What kind of strategies do start-ups today employ to stay in the game?

Join us in this reflective sharing of a recent business study visit to start-ups in the famous Silicon Valley and engage in a discovery dialogue about starting out in the space of people and organisation development in Singapore and beyond.

We have planned for this session to benefit those who are considering or have just stepped out into the People Development and OD space as independent practitioners.

While we promote a mentality of abundance and welcome everyone, we are constrained by space and also want to keep the size of the audience small so that the dialogue can be more personal and in-depth.

As such, we strongly encourage those who are seeking new perspectives to aid them in their start-out or start-up journey to sign up early, and for those who are already well heeled to give others a chance and join us for the next session.

Come with all your questions and learn together as a community.

Session Leader:
Terence Quek, CEO, Emergenetics Asia Pacific

Terence Quek is a Navy Officer-turn-entrepreneur and changemaker who chose "to make positive impact” as his purpose in life. Having completed two contracts with the Navy spanning 13 years, Terence became an entrepreneur, co-founding a strategic communications consultancy, growing it from zero to more than a million in turn-over, before leading it to merge with the subsidiary of a global consultancy.

Over a period of 10 years, Terence has amassed experience and expertise in public relations, event management, strategic communication, and in the last five years, in human capital development and organisation development. As CEO of Emergenetics Asia Pacific, Terence works with organisations across the region to value their human capital and build positive workplace cultures that harness the power of diversity. He led his team to grow a distribution network for Emergenetics products and solutions within APAC to include China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

Terence was sponsored by the Singapore Navy to pursue a degree in Psychology at the University of Sheffield, UK and later received a scholarship from the Singapore government to pursue a Master of Science in Communication Management at the Singapore Management University.

Terence gives back to the wider community in various capacities including being a mentor to various start-ups and was a mentor of Action Community for Entrepreneurship by Spring Singapore. He is one of the Custodians of PODEX.
