FWA Lunchtime Series: Payments – Then, Now & What’s in Store? Thursday, 29 August, 12:00 – 2:00 pm

          

Please note that lunch will be provided. FWA thanks AMEX & the SFA for their kind sponsorship of the venue and lunch.

 

FWA in collaboration with American Express and the Singapore Fintech Association is pleased to present a session on the future of payments.

 

In recent years, there has been exponential growth in the adoption of digital payments, with some cities and governments looking towards a ‘cashless’ future. Increasingly,  consumers are choosing their cards and phones as the way to pay over cash, with hawker centres, drivers and friends prefer to be paid via QR, mobile wallet, or instant transfer.

WOMEN WEAR MANY HATS – MANAGING STRESS TO OPTIMISE SUCCESS

 

WHO has defined burnout as a legitimate medical diagnosis and identified through feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion, increased mental distance from one's job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job and reduced professional efficacy.

 

Women handle multiple roles in life – from employee/leader/business owner to mother, daughter, caregiver and home creator. The many hats we wear can start to take a toll on how we manage our day to day lives in our attempts to juggle all that we do. This has an impact on our physical, mental and emotional well-being and not all of us know, or have been taught, how to handle these more effectively.

 

Understanding how to navigate and deal with stress and overwhelm, both at work and home is essential. Mallika Kripalani, the founder of The Conscious Zone, will be sharing strategies and practical tools and applying them to help us understand how to manage the stresses we women face. These tools can be used to handle challenges as they arise, and to deal with emotional drain we all experience as women on a regular basis. When we learn to cope with our daily stressors in a more effective way, we can be more productive and perform at a higher level.

Bloomberg's Sooner Than You Think, 5th September 2019, Conrad Centennial Singapore

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is both the stuff of Terminator-esque, end-of-humanity scenarios and an invisible but steadily increasing part of our daily lives.

 

Companies and governments are investing heavily in this space. AI-related technologies could unlock up to $15.4 trillion in annual business value worldwide. Some experts think AI will create more jobs; others say it will put millions out of work. Even without killing jobs, AI may reinforce inequality and erode civil liberties. It could lead to humans living longer. It may tame climate change. The potential is limitless. So are the consequences.

 

The biggest concrete concern is that today’s AI is, ironically, too often frustratingly stupid or opaque in reaching a conclusion. And there remains doubts on whether artificial general intelligence is even feasible.

 

Join us in Singapore as we sidestep the hype to uncover the real potential of artificial intelligence.
