“When you’re trying to shift mindsets over skill sets, it’s not about how do you assemble teams and how do you get to a solution, but how do you ultimately sell your vision and how do you get people enthusiastically believing in that vision?”
This quote is attributed to Amit Shah, president of 1-800-Flowers, in the latest Me, Myself, and AI podcast episode, “Learning, Engagement, and Empowerment” and seemed appropriate to revisit for a purpose.
Welcome to the very first edition of Biz Connections, a quarterly magazine focused on promoting the best of our research activities and highlighting the many opportunities our academics, students and partners engage.
It is timely to focus on supporting each other in 2021. The magazine will bring highlights to engage news and updates to the most recent developments embarked and experienced by our stakeholders. The mission of the magazine is to bring people together and speak with one voice, shared concerns towards elevating business ideas and growth as we navigate the pandemic’s continuing impacts. Further insights and thoughts on what’s happening in the business and how we can be reflective on tackling issues and challenges of the world.
The shared ideas is hoped to shed lights to many of the practical solutions and applications which could be adopted and built upon for the betterment of our society.
The magazine will cover issues related to research and development, teaching and learning and community outreach and participatory. As we see the school further grow as its best, our contributions here should be highly reflected. We hope very much, we will continue to keep elevating the schools vision to create a knowledge sharing and learning organisation that excels to further build talents in higher education and impacting on building the nation.
I believe we can achieve much when we work together, and Biz Connections is equipped to bring you this connections. Let us move to this shared vision.
