Verne Harnish Brings Growth to Singapore Companies

Local businesses looking to achieve topline growth in 2014 are in for a treat. AKLTG is joining hands with top business thinker, Verne Harnish, to open up business learning opportunities for Singapore companies. Verne will present his acclaimed workshop, Mastering the Rockefeller Habits (MRH) on 11 March 2014 at the Suntec Convention Centre.

The 4 Key Decisions to Driving Revenue & Profits in 2014

Named one of the ‘Top 10 Minds in Small Business’ by Fortune Small Business magazine, Verne Harnish created the Rockefeller Habits based on the leadership and management skills of business magnate John D. Rockefeller (one of the wealthiest man in history). He asserts the four critical decisions — People, Strategy, Execution and Cash — that every firm must get right in order to achieve growth in the changing world of business and maximise revenue, profits and time.

Harnish firmly believes that people dynamics play a huge impact on business growth. According to him, ‘getting the right people to do the right things’ should be the top priortity for every business. In his one-day workshop, he shows CEOs and management teams how to get their people to perform with clear accountabilities and metrics. Harnish will also delve into the other three ‘key decisions’ and work with participants to revamp their business strategy using his famed One-Page Strategic Plan.

A Game Changer in Singapore’s Business Learning Scene

The MRH workshop has received praise and support from well-known local companies like JobsCentral, Property Guru, Lunch Actually, BGC Group and 77th Street. Says Ms. Violet Lim, CEO of Lunch Actually, “Verne’s workshop was very insightful. My team and I learnt lots and cannot wait to get going on implementing the things we have learnt.”

The workshop’s inaugural Singapore run, which was held in October last year, saw the attendance of 121 business leaders from 38 companies. This included delegates from Malaysia, Thailand and Philppines, who flew in specially to attend the event.
