This year’s Straits Times Education Forum will be held on April 6, and will discuss the motion “Entrepreneurs today do more harm than good”.
This year’s forum will include two junior college students and alumni from Ngee Ann Polytechnic and Singapore Management University.
Like last year, those attending will be asked to vote for or against the motion at the start and end of the debate. The team that manages to swing more votes will be declared the winner.
SMU president Lily Kong said, “We are delighted to have in The Straits Times a like-minded partner as we bring entrepreneurs, industry leaders, students and academics together to discuss timely issues of global importance such as what the role of modern day entrepreneurs should be, and if they are still creating value for the people whilst remaining profitable.”
Mr Warren Fernandez, editor-in-chief of Singapore Press Holdings’ English/Malay/Tamil Media Group and editor of The Straits Times, said “Every issue can be seen from a range of perspectives, and debates offer a good opportunity to ponder these. This is why our series of debate-style forums has been so popular, and this one promises to be no different.”
