  • Solo Speech - Dennis Nally: Addressing the Global Talent

  • Time/Place 10.11 15:30 ~ 16:30,  Mugunghwa Hall2
    Synopsis Talent is back on top of the CEO agenda - despite budget constraints, hiring freezes, and high unemployment in many parts of the world. As businesses search for growth, particularly in emerging markets, chronic shortages of the right people in the right places is becoming a major concern. A talent pool that is contracting in the developed world and expanding in emerging economies is giving rise to an increasingly diverse labour market, creating both business opportunities and management challenges. As companies increasingly look to talent beyond their traditional borders, they will seek new ways of identifying and engaging talent in its rawest forms, and developing diverse, agile employees.

    Synopsis "If you can dream it, you can do it." For nearly 90 years, the Walt Disney Company has been innovating and offering consumers content that is relevant, that transcends borders and utilizes the latest technology. This session will look at how Disney transitioned from yesterdays to today's "popular culture" and how through this era of change, certain values and brands become more important to consumers. Looking through the lens of "great story-telling is timeless" we will examine what makes Disney as unique and relevant today as it always has been and look at what Disney is doing to embrace changing consumer habits around the world and here in Asia.

  • Solo Speech - Nishida, Atsutoshi: Aiming for Harmony between the Environment and the Economy

  • Time/Place 10.11 17:10 ~ 18:30,  Mugunghwa Hall1
    Synopsis In the 20th century there was a total devotion to the simple indicator of 쐅rowth. However the 21st century is more complex and we face a trilemma of three issues: 쐃conomic growth, 쐃nvironmental preservation and 쐓ecuring resources. All of these must be solved simultaneously. Furthermore, the risk of large scale, unforeseen natural disasters, like the March 11 Great East Japan Earthquake, make finding a resolution for the trilemma even more difficult. In these circumstances, we, the international community acting as a united whole, and within that at the level of the nation, the corporation and the individual, we now need to construct the elements of a harmonious and sustainable society. In the past few years, however, they have broadened their focus beyond the energy supply side to include the energy consumption side and Smart Grids. These utilize dispersed energy sources, including such renewable energy sources as solar power and wind power, as well as rechargeable batteries. They also promote the creation of innovative technologies that seek to reduce aggregate power demand, such as Home Energy Management System and Building Energy Management System, which make use of ICT, and peak power cut. With that in mind, I would like to suggest that what is needed is the construction of total societal systems, of Smart Frugal Societies, driven by the technology innovations that have evolved from progress in achieving the traditional 쐀est energy mix and Smart Grids. A Smart Frugal Society will be a total societal system that manages all social infrastructure systems, from the energy supply side right through to the energy consumption side. This century will be led by sustainable low-carbon societies that are the product of innovation in science and technology. Government should be aware of this and do more to promote policy to encourage progress. And finally, as we seek to realize the ideal of Smart Frugal Societies within this century, the role of science and technology in society is going to become increasingly important.

  • Solo Speech - Gordon Brown: Beyond the Crash: Overcoming the First Crisis of Globalization

  • Time/Place 10.12 08:00 ~ 08:50,  Vista Hall
    Synopsis It's been said that risk is being globalized. One nation's risk becomes bigger and worse and spreads to all over the world next day. Downgrade of U.S. credit rating and EU debt crisis is not a problem just for those countries. The problem has begun from them, however, it ended up bringing a financial disaster internationally. This is the reason why universal cooperation in order for continuous growth and creating employment is necessary. Globalization of risk has become more serious since Neo-liberal policy made it easy on deregulation. Gordon points out that establishing international surveillance system and enforcing the role as a sovereign state are demanded to control this globalization of risk. Let's hear how MR. Brown advises us to deal with global economic crisis.

  • Time/Place 10.12 11:40 ~ 12:50,  Cosmos Hall
    Synopsis Development requires financial resources, and it needs ideas. The knowledge we need to prosper accumulates in many forms, in many places. Structured research in academies and research institutes provides us with new ways of looking at problems and new innovations, based on rich evidence. Advisory services provided by think tanks, consulting firms, international organizations, and government bodies provide a foundation for policy innovation. And perhaps less visible but very important is the experience embodied in organizations and individuals that have long wrestled with solving problems as they implement development programs. The talk will focus on how we can better capture and deliver knowledge for development. It will discuss the types of knowledge we need for development, where that knowledge resides, and ways of making knowledge more accessible. The talk will describe the World Bank's new Open Development approach, including reforms it is making in the ways it produces and manages knowledge. It will draw on examples of how innovations in programs and policies spread between countries through bilateral exchanges, training, advisory services, and publications; and with the assistance of new technologies.

  • Solo Speech - Amy Chua: Tiger Mom 2.0: Korean Moms

  • Time/Place 10.13 09:00 ~ 10:10,  Vista Hall
    Synopsis Korean mothers are second to none in the field of children education in the world. The author of 쁔iger Mother, Amy Chua, is going to present her own way of Asian style education in the World Knowledge Forum specially addressed to Korean. This book gave such a huge impact in the U.S with the story of her style of upbringing her daughters. According to her theory, the essence of nurturing requires mothers to be strict to their child so that they could be on the right track, since children cannot tell which is good or bad. Not all people are happy about this theory, but her book was good enough to make an issue because all of her daughters got into top universities and became talented personal. It would be interesting to listen and compare the way of nurturing method with Amy Chua. It seems like she will bring us many implications to mothers in Korea who are considered to be the most relentless ones. What kind of education method do we need to nurture our children to be competitive in this global era? You can also check if this way of education can be available to become the global standard.

  • Solo Speech - Christoper Pissarides - Spreading prosperity through job creation: Work in newly industrializing nations

  • Time/Place 10.13 15:30 ~ 16:50,  Vista Hall
    Synopsis The changes currently taking place in the world economic order are monumental but they are not unprecedented. In the last two hundred years Britain was once the dominant manufacturing power, then came Germany and then the United States. Each time manufacturing grew but the service economy followed to replace it as the main provider of jobs. The spread of prosperity from the wealth creation that originates in manufacturing takes place through job creation, with new and better-paying jobs becoming widely available across a wide variety of industrial and service sectors. How does job creation change during industrialization, what type of jobs are created and is prosperity enjoyed by many or the few? Is there a role for government policy, or does a free unregulated economy give the best outcome for wealth creation and universal prosperity? These and other similar questions are the ones that will be addressed in the context of the Asian economic miracle.
