Frost & Sullivan Public Sector Case Challenge 2013 Recognizes The Most Innovative Next Generation Of Leaders In Singapore

SINGAPORE, March 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan recognized and celebrated innovative young leaders at the inaugural Frost & Sullivan Public Sector Case Challenge 2013 on 14 March 2013 at the SP Jain School of Global Management, Singapore Campus.

The inaugural event received tremendous response with 120 teams registered.  Five of the most innovative teams were selected for the finals and mentored by consultants from Frost & Sullivan. At the finals, the teams presented their solutions to a judging panel comprising of eminent thought leaders such as Mr Ong Ye Kung, Director of Group Strategy at Keppel Corporation, Mr Philip Lim, Chief Executive Officer of Exploit Technologies, Dr KF Lai, Chief Executive Officer of BuzzCity, Mr David Chou, Chief Executive Officer of evHUB, Prof S Rajagopalan, Dean, Executive Education at SP Jain School of Global Management, and Mr Manoj Menon, Managing Director and Partner at Frost & Sullivan.

The topic of this year challenge focused on 'How a government can foster innovation to promote economic growth and development'. After intense deliberation, two teams emerged victorious, tied at first place, each winning the top prize of SGD 1,500 and other awards. The winners are Siswanto Tang, Koh Kian Sin and Tan Chin Hui Sean from the National University of Singapore (NUS) and Nattawut Arunanondchai, Tan Kwan Hong and Vishal Jain from Singapore Management University ( SMU).

Shivaji Das, Vice President, Public Sector, Asia Pacific said, "This unique case challenge provided a platform for the public service leaders to identify talent and the next generation of leaders. It is folly to think that only private sector strives for obtainment of excellence or causes our communities to achieve it. The value of public service is vital to our republic and the success of our communities. Today, public sector leaders are working in an era of dynamic global economies and stormy political discourse; I believe we need to continuously attract a new generation of the best and the brightest to public service. It can be stimulating, and a source of pride and inspiration."   

The Frost & Sullivan Case Challenge 2013 focused on identifying innovating solutions for the challenges faced by governments around the world. The event provides an opportunity and a platform for next generation leaders to develop and present ideas on how a government can foster innovation to promote economic growth and development.
