What is the session about?


The volume, variety and velocity of changes in Asia’s geopolitical environment are simply mind-boggling.  Technological affordances, the Belt-Road-Initiative, and even trade tensions between various super-economies, are creating significant opportunities for the Training and Adult Education (TAE) sector.  The region is seeing unprecedented Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) growth, which naturally surface skills gaps that present tremendous opportunities for AEs from Singapore who can help to bridge them. Seizing these opportunities would require our AEs to embrace an international entrepreneurial mindset and move beyond the comfort zones of Singapore, into where the real action is! 

IAL has commissioned a SIG for Continuing Education and Training (CET) Entrepreneurship with a focus on Internationalisation. This is to gather all AEN members who are interested to be entrepreneurs (create opportunities instead of waiting for opportunities) to offer their skills, knowledge and experience to the international markets. The Singapore market is just too small. 

Since Anderson Tan and F T Liu have already ventured overseas, they are asked to Co-Chair this SIG so that more AEs can tap on their experience to go overseas. They will be facilitating a special 6-session SIG track spanning a 12-month duration for AEs to share and learn together.

This inaugural session will cover the following:

  • Vision Casting
  • Strategic Planning
  • Case study of 3 Go-To-Market Plans for 3 Countries in Asia

If you are interested but not sure how to break into the international market, or you would like to work with like-minded AEs, this SIG is for you.  Sign-up quickly to avoid disappointment and bring your war stories for a robust discussion on what worked and what didn’t.


What does the session cover?


At the end of this session, you would be able to: 

  • Better understanding of international opportunities for TAE sector
  • Clearer insights into various internationalisation strategies designed specifically for AEs
  • Be part of the Country teams to break into the respective countries
