Temasek Polytechnic’s 2016 Entrepreneurs’ Forum
Just before Christmas, I was privileged to have been invited to speak at Temasek Polytechnic’s annual Entrepreneurs’ Forum.
It was a half day event organised by the School of Business and most in attendance were from the graduating cohort. Nevertheless, I noticed a number of students from other faculties who were eager to learn beyond the conventional curriculum of their subject major. Great, entrepreneurs come from all fields and walks of life! It’s no secret that the entrepreneurs of this century (technopreneurs) aren’t just majors in business but design, technology, science, engineering and so on!
I was one of three speakers who took the stage for 30 minutes to speak about my entrepreneurship journey — the Jublia story thus far. After which we had a panel question and answer before concluding with light refreshments at the foyer.
To sum up, here are the take aways I hope to have left everyone at the forum that day:
1. Opportunities — Make full use of them and don’t dwell in the ones you’ve missed, the next one would come
2. Hard Work — There is no substitution for the investment of blood, sweat and tears
3. Faith — Every business starts with taking a step of faith
4. Adaptable — Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you response to these circumstances
Since speaking at TP, a few students have been proactively reaching out for internship opportunities and I’m glad to say that we’re having more TP students joining the Jublia family this year. Thank you and keep it coming, the internship slots are filling fast!
If you’d like to find out more about internship opportunities with Jublia OR are interested in the content of my session for future guest speaking opportunities, do reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once again, many thanks to Temasek Polytechnic School of Business for having me. Here’s wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy 2017!
