Career Clinic hosted in partnership with Expat Living

The multi-culturalism of Singapore is a big part of what makes it a global business hub, but at the same time this also presents challenges in the workplace. On any given day, we can interact with a number of different cultures, each with their own preferences for communication and work-style.

Whether a newcomer or long-time resident, job-seeker or seasoned manager, understanding the influence of culture is critical to surviving and thriving in Singapore.

Join Dr. Zsuzsanna Tungli, Managing Partner of Developing Global Leaders Asia and author of The Culture Key Between Asia and the West for an interactive workshop on developing your level of cultural awareness and honing your own cultural competencies. 

This facilitated workshop will be practical and engaging. Join us to:

  • Increase your cultural awareness
  • Learn about four key cultural differences that have the biggest impact on individual careers, team effectiveness and organizational success, including:
    • Building trust and relationships through prioritizing people and/or tasks
    • Providing direct and indirect feedback
    • Empowerment, speaking up and hierarchy
    • The role of silence in communication
  • Explore case studies that highlight how culture impacts communication in the workplace
  • Engage in role play exercises to better understand cultural preferences
  • Reflect and practice how and when to adjust your style

Come prepared to learn, share experiences and, most important of all, be inspired to implement your new-found cultural awareness in your business life!

Includes light refreshments

AAS Events and COVID-19:

As of March 20: AAS continues to monitor the current Covid-19 situation. In line with the latest MOH guidelines on social distancing, AAS has implemented a cap of 30 registrants to our offsite events and 10 registrants for office events and will ensure there is one meter between seats. 

Latest advisory from MOH - MARCH 18, 2020 Click here for more information.

In view of the heightened risk of further importation of COVID-19 to Singapore, all are advised to defer all travel abroad with immediate effect. This supercedes MOH earlier advisory announced on 15 March to defer all non-essential travel abroad. The expansion of the travel advisory is to reduce the risk of infection with the virus when abroad, and spreading it to others when they return.

14-Day Stay-Home Notice for all travellers

To further reduce the risk of further importation leading to community spread in Singapore, the Multi-Ministry Taskforce will put in place additional measures for all travellers entering Singapore. From 20 March 2020, 2359 hours, all Singaporeans, Permanent Residents, Long Term Pass holders and short term visitors entering Singapore will be issued a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN). 

Health Clearance Requirements - MOH

Do not attend AAS events if you feel unwell. Wash your hands frequently, or use hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.

We thank you for your patience during this time. As a non-profit organization we will do all we can to limit disruption, and ask for your support and consideration in the event of cancellations or refunds.

We will continue to monitor the situation and check government health site every day for updates. The health and well-being of our members and guests is important to us, and we will continue to follow the advice of the MOH.
