Innovation in Government |

Innovation in Government


Awaken Group’s conversations with global leaders reveal, “Innovation is about driving change that makes the world better. ” Innovation starts with a mind-set, and not simply more resources, and a challenge that most organisations face is creating cultures of innovation and creativity.

So-Young Kang will share insights and examples of innovative leadership, how to create cultures of innovation and creativity, and why this matters for the public sector. She will draw stories from her experiences with over a dozen government agencies and interviews with global leaders.

As an example of innovation, Ms. Kang will share the story of the “accidental book.” In 2012, she had conversations with 12 business and government leaders based in Singapore—including Dr. Cheong Koon Hean (CEO, Housing and Development Board); Ho Kwon Ping (Founder, Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts); Liew Mun Leong (CEO, CapitaLand Group)—who shared their personal perspectives around global leadership and innovation. These stories culminated into a new book, Inside Out: Conversations about Leadership and Innovation in a New Global Economy.
