Where2Shop at HDB

Yesterday afternoon, I was invited to attend a retail seminar in Mandarin for the HDB shop retailers. Part of my current job scope is to draft articles for Houseword.

The tagline for the inaugural retail seminar  is “Breakthrough for Business Success” or “创造商机,突破思维”.

In the seminar, HDB also launched a new shopping directory call Where2Shop@HDB to help consumers find the HDB retailers.

3 speakers, who had years of experience running their own businesses, were very enlightening. They talked about their experience building their businesses, introduced key business ideas and latest retail trends/concepts in 1 hour plus. However, many retailers left after the last speaker (who had to be cut short because of time constraint).

It was the Q&A session at about 5.30pm.

Didn’t the speakers inspire the retailers as much as I had felt? I felt so inspired that I felt I should also do a business!

One brave soul, who stayed on, went to the mike and said… he felt the free seminars were very good for him as he had very little education. The second speaker who also had very little education, was commendable for her stellar business achievements. However, he felt helpless as he was only a small HDB shop retailer and do not know what are the next steps to achieve what the speakers had over 18 – 21 years.

I guess many others would have felt the same way.

What the emcee rightly summarised after the speakers gave their advice:

“To achieve breakthrough for business success – be positive, passionate and persevere to be the best in what you can do.”

Do you have the “3 Ps” to start with?
