The inaugural Program included an impressive list of speakers : Prof William Fisher III from Harvard Law School; Matthew R Bryan from WIPO; Theo Stamatiadis, Attorney-at-Law based in Barcelona; Prof Felix Oberholzer-Gee from Harvard Business School, Assoc. Prof. Susanna HS Leong from NUS Business School; Richard Buttrick from RB Consulting; and Karen Lee Rata from WIPO.
It was a privilege to listen and learn from such distinguished and experienced speakers from both the academia and the business world. With the aid of Prof Fisher's marvellous mind map, the program provided a foundation for IP knowledge and the various possible ways to deploy IP strategically.
We were challenged, enlightened and in some cases, amused, by case studies in the world of trademarks, patents and copyright and of course business. It was also enjoyable to be in a classroom with people from neighbouring countries. Added to that, the beautiful NUS campus and hospitality of their staff made the program highly satisfactory in terms of feeding the mind, body and soul. Now, back to work!
