To inaugurate this year’s Workforce Mobility Interactive in Malaysia, Human Resources’ regional editor Aditi Sharma Kalra takes the stage to welcome all delegates, sponsors and speakers.
She says: “This year’s conference has been produced by our colleague, Priya Veeriah, who has brought together two keynote presentations, two panel discussions, and four interactive sessions for delegates to get the most value today.”
Here to make sense of the mobility landscape for 2017 is our first speaker, with nearly 20 years of experience in designing customised mobility solutions across industries.
Richard Willeter is the director of corporate services for Crown World Mobility in Asia, where his work centres around developing practical solutions that strike the right balance between cost reduction and talent strategies.
He joined Crown in France in 2009, transferred to Hong Kong in 2012, and has since become a member of the group’s senior leadership team, talent review board and an active member of AmCham’s human capital committee.
Here to present a bird’s-eye view of the influence of trends such as patriotism and the gig economy on mobility – please welcome Richard Willeter.
We welcome you to our very first interactive session. One of four topics discussed is compliance and risk navigation – moderated by HR experts, Robert Day, acting head of global immigration, Santa Fe Relocation Services, and Amit K Sexana, head of human resources, Recron Malaysia.
Diving right into our second interactive session. One of the four topics discussed is experiential learning – moderated by James Wellings, director of innovative learning, Garden International School; and Alison Hamshire, principal at Nexus International School.
As we take a tea break, let’s gain some insights from Workforce Mobility Interactive 2017 gold sponsor Crown World Mobility.
It’s time for a lunch break. We’d like to thank silver sponsors Garden International School and Nexus International School.
While delegates take a break for tea and networking, we’d like to thank gold sponsors – Santa Fe Relocation Services and SIRVA.
As we round up an interesting day, this rapidfire session is a way to refresh and reflect upon our top learning from the day. We’ll pass around the mic to our 8 discussion hosts who’ll leave us with some food for thought.
