Organized By:
iGlobal Forum

Description:  With the high prices of U.S. distressed loans and general scarcity of distress in the market, fund managers are facing a shortfall of investible deals. But there are profitable opportunities for those who seek them out; and many managers are moving outside of their conventional investment profiles to find them.

 Improvisation To Create Enhanced Leadership Presence

Organized By:
neoedge
www.neo-edge.com

Description:  Improvisation to Create Enhanced Leadership Presence is a proven highly effective workshop, a flagship product of Business Theatre (BBT) and Neoedge Pte Ltd.

In the corporate world, people often find themselves entangled in 'corporate chaos' that restrict individual expression, passion and effective communication. In theatre, actors achieve the best stage performance by "losing themselves in the moment" and by collaborating freely with fellow actors.

Corporate training incorporated with theatre-based games and exercises can allow participants to experience deep transformational personal learning. This researched approach has been backed by the behavioural validation of numerous participants in the U.S., Europe and India.
