The Value of Intangible Assets That Matters to Your Business
While most businesses track tangible items such as buildings, inventories or machineries, some may not be aware that the value of intangible assets is significant in the long-term if they are properly identified and managed. Intangible assets are critical to corporate value. The lack of reporting may affect valuations for the worse when it comes to business acquisitions or expansion. What are the financial reporting and valuation challenges? How do we identify and value intangible assets that are not only critical in today’s business, but also comparability on financial statements?

Impact of Sustainability on Brand Value: Evidence from Singapore’s Companies, ASEAN Next?
Sustainability in businesses has been related to better market values. This is driven by an investor-based perspective which draws from a cost argument. In essence, better sustainability will lower the cost of equity as value increases. In a new study, we found that sustainability, as measured by its reporting, will also lead to higher brand values, thus uncovering a revenue angle. This study is based on evidence from Singapore’s listed companies. The webinar will highlight the relationship between sustainability and brand values in a practical way, with emphasis on implications and insights for business and regulatory leaders. It will then reveal the latest sustainability reporting findings in ASEAN companies, with a view towards examining the impact on brand values.

Has Asia Lost It? Dynamic Past, Turbulent Future
Covid-19 has exposed developing Asia’s social, political, and economic fault-lines. In a region obsessed with high economic growth, inequality is rising and social mobility has stalled. In his new book, well-known expert Vasuki Shastry argues that while Asia’s reckoning may have been subject of speculation before the pandemic, Covid-19 has made that inevitable. After benefiting from investment, and trade for several decades, the region’s durable economic model is facing headwinds due to pressures on globalisation and the US-China trade war. Can Asia remain the greatest show on earth?

IP Commercialisation & Strategy Workshop
Over the past 20 years, intangible assets have become the dominant factor in company valuations. Today approximately 85% of the valuation of the S&P 500 is defined by intangibles, while in 1975, that percentage was just 17%. Intangibles are notoriously difficult to value. Given their slippery nature and their power to generate returns, it’s worth paying attention to the qualities of intangibles. How did they become so powerful? The workshop take a closer look and unravel the power of IP strategy for businesses in the post-covid world.

How To Position Your Brand To B2B Customers And Investors
How To Position Your Brand To B2B Customers & Investors Branding has often been associated with B2C brands but it is actually more important for B2B companies because of The Risk Factor. Buying a B2B product entails more risk because they usually cost more than consumer products, and if a B2B product fails to perform, the results are often more catastrophic. That is why B2B buyers tend to gravitate to The Strongest Brand In Their Price Range. There are many differences between B2B and B2C brands that require that B2B companies position and market themselves differently. There are also a lot of things B2B brands can learn from their B2C cousins. We have invited B2B branding expert, Mr. Jacky Tai, author of 7 brand strategy books, to share with you on how you can use certain techniques to build a strong B2B brand on your own. Jacky's presentation will cover the following topics: 1. The biggest differences between B2B and B2C branding. 2. The 4 key factors B2B buyers use to determine which brand to buy from. 3. The building blocks that you can use to build a strong B2B brand. 4. The techniques you can use to market your B2B brand more effectively. Join us in this webinar on 22 April 4 - 6 PM if you are trying to find an edge for your B2B brand.
