Topic:

Ride New Trends as the "First Mover"
Presented by Mr. Jeff Ng, Founder & Executive Director, GURU ONLINE, and serial entrepreneur

After Jeff Ng’s first job at McKinsey & Company, working for giant corporations across the globe, he embarked on an entrepreneurial journey to create values by starting up companies in various niche markets.  By combining “top down” thinking and a “bottom up” approach, Jeff has consistently found a pattern of how to ride a trend as the "first mover" in many niche markets and has built a presence as the No.1 player in several such markets

In his speech, Jeff will share his views on how to spot emerging niche markets and how and when to capitalize on them with startups that can create value.

Among the business development techniques Jeff will share with the audience are:

  1. How to observe and monitor trends using the “top down” approach.
  2. How to find a niche that has big enough profitability but not so big that big companies would jump into it immediately (and possibly “crush” you).  (Top down)
  3. How to determine if you can become the No. 1 or No. 2 player in a particular niche market.  (Top down)
  4. How to “walk through” consumer perception in terms of using your planned product or service.  (Bottom up)
  5. How to find the right people (but not necessarily the best people) to fit the job and “join the team”.  (Bottom up)
  6. How to evaluate speed versus scale, and how to achieve tasks using “the simplest approach”.  (Bottom up)

After the presentation, the session will continue in an interactive Q & A format where members and guests are encouraged to discuss relevant issues with our guest speaker.
