Keynote Speech 1

Leadership for the Future

The world economy is caught in a trap of low growth and combined depression. A slow economic recovery among developed nations is giving rise to an inequality, and this inequality is putting productivity at peril. Unless the slowdown of productivity and the spread of inequality are stopped, more people will be endangered. Some of the major countries around the world are expecting government turnovers at the moment. As the stagnant wages are inciting workers’ dissatisfaction, there will be a rise of populism that calls for rise of unemployment, laborers’ sacrifice, and the rise of the rich. Mr. Brian Cowen, the former Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland was appointed in the midst of global financial crisis. The ruling party pushed through a strong structural reform even by giving up the government recreation, and carried through a tripartite compromise by increasing the employment instead of restraining the rise of the wage. In this session, we hope to learn how Ireland dealt with the crisis, given that Korea has been stagnating economically since 2008 as well, and how Mr. Cowen, both publicly and personally as a national leader, had underwent it. Furthermore, this session will inspire the audience to look ahead to a brighter, more positive and more cheerful future in the midst of challenges and difficulties.

Keynote Speech 2

Challenging Spirit in Low-Growth Society

A widespread social concern in Korea these days is that there is a lack of challenging spirit among people. There is an overflow of diagnosis and prescription to such concern on surface as well. Thoughts and concerns that our young individuals are losing their challenging spirit, or that they are reluctant to join workforces, or that they are losing their entrepreneurial spirit, are prevalent, and in addition, there are many new policies in practice seeking to boost the challenging spirit, encourage initiating start-up companies, and provide new business opportunities for already existing companies. All such diagnosis and prescriptions cannot, however, fix the very fundamental core problem unless there is a fundamental symptom of the problem. Dr. Ellen Langer, the Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, has devised a concept called ‘Mindfulness’. Her research over 40 years on the relationship between human cognizance and behavior will discuss what kind of education and fostering of challenges will help the nation to inspire a challenging spirit.

Plenary Session 1

Innovation and Leadership

As globalization is accelerating and the competition among international corporations is getting intense, the bar for globalization is becoming higher. Both globalization and glocalization are expected, as well as both centralization and decentralization. In other words, only a well-rounded, multi-faceted corporation will survive in this era. Such multinational corporations can represent both the global strategy and multinational strategy. They are interdependent and they are spread all over the world with their specialized asset and talents. Each branch contributes to the mother company in its own way, and must be able to develop its intellect and share with the world. In this session, we will explore what kinds of tasks are left to the entrepreneurial business in this era of creative economy and also what global businesses can do to enhance their competitiveness.

Plenary Session 2

The Digital Education Revolution and the Future of Higher Education

Digital revolution is accelerating. In 10 years, there will a super-connected society in which all the people around the world will be able to communicate with one another online, as well as knowledge can be shared and collaborated. In response to such transition, it is important to acknowledge each student’s own unique characteristic and ability, and make the program tailored to each student’s own needs. We are already seeing revolutionary institutions around the world. For example, there are MOOC, which has made top university lectures made available, Khan Academy providing over 4000 lectures for free, and Minerva School. In this session, we will explore how the implementation of digital technology has brought such a revolutionary change to the higher education, and how this will help future universities the opportunities of challenges and revolutions.

Plenary Session 3

21st Century Employment and Global Talent Fostering

There are many different ways of employment system, such as work by the hour, telecommuting, and labor contract, and these systems are now replacing the traditional ones. Such diverse system can secure a flexible employment management thereby making it easy to operate efficient working personnel. A new employment system is the new competitiveness that distinguishes one company from another. There are, however, some criticisms that this endangers the employment stability. A diverse employment system is the new irresistible trend in a global market pool. In this session, we will examine how the global corporations in the 21st century can adjust to the new change and how to effectively utilize such new employment system.

Special Session 1

How to Invent the Future?

While the rapid technological and scientific advances are enriching the human lives, there are also social problems that isolate the technology and the humans. What are some of the helpful technological advances that allow people and technology to co-exist and how could we secure a sustainable society? Furthermore, what are some of the technological advancement that would benefit the entire human race and what kind of society can we imagine? Professor Daniel Zajfman, the President of the Weizmann Institute of Science will participate in this session to discuss how we can develop new ideas for the next scientific and technological revolution, and how we can design processes that will create a better scientific and technological future. The Weizmann Institute of Science, which has produced a number of Nobel laureates is the cradle of Israeli science and technology.

Special Session 1

Why Design Thinking is Business Thinking - Business Success through Innovation, Strategy and Design

What is a businessman and what is a designer? Can one be both at the same time? In this session, we will have Mr. Martin Darbyshire, the CEO of tangerine, who will share with us how design thinking is business thinking as they share the same fundamental aim - more profit for your business.

Special Session 2

Audacious Challenge: Imagine the Impossible

Every day we face great changes and events that can reverse the flow of the world economy, as well as world politics and society. What lies ahead of us remains in complete mystery and there may even be great crisis waiting for us in the near future. In such times, it is only those who are most active, positive, and hopeful towards the future that can survive and thus create a new paradigm of the future. In other words, what is required for the new talent in the future is the audacious and challenging spirit that can imagine the impossible in such troubled times without despair. The ‘right person’ or ‘necessary person’ would be someone who is not afraid of challenging himself or herself in attempting to resolve the stagnation in society by imaging the impossible, rather than being complacent in the traditional framework. In this session, we hope to both inspire our young individuals and students to challenge themselves and look ahead to the future as well as boost their spirit and help them cope with their difficulties

Special Session 3

The Prospect of 2020 Global Crisis

In this session, we will be inviting an expert from Stratfor, a global think tank, in order to explore the power transfer across the globe and the future global risks in consequence. Some of the questions that we are examining are whether or not the right party will take over in the United States, Europe, and Japan, China can become the ultimate hegemony, if an alliance among Korea, China, and Japan can collaborate together for the supremacy in Northeast Asia, which nation will dominate the power balance, how the United States will adopt its strategic change, etc. Overall, by examining these questions, we hope to forecast the future political, economic, and military prospect through refining the analytical process as well as geopolitical framework.

Special Session 3

Leadership Change among the Chinese Industry

In this session, we have Mr. Peter Everaert, who represented Korn Ferry as Vice Chair of the B20/G20 Employment Task Force, organized under the Presidency of China. He will be addressing topics including igniting entrepreneurship and intrapreneurship to create economic growth and meaningful lives, as well as China 4.0, an example of leaders changing their focus to entrepreneurship and innovation.

Track A Session 1

The Demographic Crisis: Impact of Low Birth Rates and Aging Population on HRD and Its Policy Direction

Concerns are being raised that demographic changes - falling birth rates and an aging population - will lead to population decline, which will drive down economic growth and lead to a shortage of human resources in the field of state-of-the-art technologies, boding ill for national development. From the perspective of human resources development, in the age of low birth rates and aging population, drastic changes, such as measures to revamp education policies to allow seamless labor market transition of youth from school to work, and to expand economically active population, should be brought about to maintain national competitiveness. During this session, participants will discuss strategies for developing and managing human resources and ways to nurture future talent in the age of great demographic changes.

Track A Session 2

Education for Dreams and Talents: The Role and Direction of Exam-Free Semester and Career Education for Innovation

The key objective of school education is to give students opportunities to nurture their dreams and talents, while providing guidance, so that they can make plans for a bright future, leading to a happy life later on. The Exam-Free Semester is a flagship program of the Korean Ministry of Education, which offers chances to experience various jobs to help students decide their future career in line with their dreams and aptitudes. The Exam-Free Semester, which is designed to go hand in hand with the overall direction of career education in primary and secondary school curricula, allows students to prepare for the evolving world of jobs in advance, and to find their aptitude to be able to make informed decisions on their future careers. For this reason, it is critical to come up with a comprehensive master plan to bring about education reform in the classroom, and to advance students’ motivation, learning outcomes, and their right to education by closely linking the Exam-Free Semester and career education, backed by effective policies. In a rapidly-changing world of jobs, a career education which offers students hand-on job experience tailored to their individual needs will become a global phenomenon, leading to sweeping changes in the field of education.

Track A Session 3

Unlocking Your Imagination: The Changing Role of Universities in Developing Creative, Convergent Human Talents

Imagination is more important than knowledge. This remark was made by Albert Einstein during an interview in 1929. He added that for knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. The shift to a new paradigm in future education involves a focus on creative convergence, which serves as an impetus for imagination. Creative convergence talents can be viewed as individuals who can create value through the knowledge convergence equipped with scientific insight and humanistic imagination. This session will present innovative cases of higher education that encourage students to activate their imagination and reach their potential through an impressive spectrum of experiential learning opportunities beyond known boundaries and disciplines.

Track A Session 4

Towards a Society that Values Diverse Competencies

One of the most pressing issues of our times is the skills mismatch in the labor market, the source of youth unemployment. To drive down the high youth unemployment, individual aptitudes and skills should be fully recognized by society and actively nurtured by schools and training institutions. In other words, individual competencies should be more valued over mere academic resumes in the labor market. In this case, however, it is important to note that individual competencies mean more than just abstract knowledge. Rather, they are skills that can be applied and put into actual practice on the ground, and these are the skills that should be accurately measured and assessed for recognition. Because people have different skills and aptitudes unique to themselves, it is important to be able to identify them correctly to determine exactly how to put them in the actual use in the job market. Moreover, society as a whole should be more willing to recognize individuals’ unique skills to allow them to freely move up the social ladder. Countries are providing more diverse learning pathways to allow their citizens hone their skills and develop career. However, it is important to have a single qualifications framework in place to recognize individuals’ learning outcomes acquired through various pathways - vocational training, on-the-job training, school education and in-house training - be fully recognized, and also to prevent any overlap of qualifications or overqualification. In Korea, efforts are being made to establish NQF, National Qualifications Framework, to recognize various skills and competencies, while preventing a waste of time and resources stemming from overqualification. Nevertheless, for the establishment of the NQF, society as a whole need to work together to bring down Korea’s long-standing education fever, while building consensus among stakeholders. During this session, by sharing stories of countries that already have NQF in place and how Korea has been preparing for its own NQF, the most fitting model for Korea will be found, while raising people’s general awareness of NQF.

Track B Session 1

What Motivates Our Employees

Hiring an extraordinarily talented individual usually costs tremendous time and money; a failure to utilize the hired talent thus would be a huge loss for the corporations. On the other hand, making the best use of a ‘mediocre’ talent could bring the maximized outcome. From corporations’ perspective, it certainly is beneficial to recruit an extraordinary talent; however, making the best use of the hired talent by assigning a definite motivation, task, and aim cannot be ignored as well. The success of corporations depends on development and management of hired talents. Thus, it is important to check how the human resources system is being managed. In this session, we will take a look at some of the successful HR management strategies from top companies around the world.

Track B Session 2

How to Build Your Startup from Scratch

Inspiring success stories of ordinary people can encourage those experiencing failures and frustration to cope and overcome their difficulties. In this session, the young start-up CEOs will share their stories, their initial failures, ups and downs, their persistence, and their current success. Their values and purpose in life are very much realistic and easygoing that their stories will deeply move the audience. They are not the typical big company heads or the famous CEOs who receive countless spotlights from media; however, their heartwarming stories will provide both inspiring and realistic manuals for those who seek to prepare themselves for start-up in recession.

Track B Session 3

The New HR Management Strategies for the CEOs

As the status of workers is rising and as creating the added value of human resources becomes the focal point, the efficiency of standardized HR management is reaching its limit. In modern era, human resources management becomes a key issue that determines an organization’s outcome. The growth of younger generation that has different outlook on life, the difference in employment system within organization, and the need to control human resources management become the key issues. In order to make human resources management well, it is important to focus on each individual’s needs and focus on the need to satisfy workers’ needs and talents. In this session, we will introduce new HR strategies as well as discuss the focal points in managing human resources in organizations.

Track B Session 4

How to Hire the Best Talents

The corporations are making their best efforts to find talents that can easily adapt to fast changes and transitions around the world; in response, they are using different recruiting and employment system than the traditional one. In an intense competitive system, the key to persistent success of an organization is to recruit and foster creative and innovative talents. Excellent global companies are making their best efforts toward hiring and fostering core talents. In this session, we will learn about the kinds of strategies and systems the top companies are adopting in attracting the best talents around the world by examining their HR development and HR management, as well as the secret behind forecasting the potential demand of human resources in the future and economizing the time and cost in hiring people.

Track C Session 1

Human Resources Development Demanded by Artificial Intelligent Industry

Industrial competitiveness to live up to the new trend in the fourth industrial revolution represented by artificial intelligence industry and big data has become a pressing matter in global community. Artificial intelligence brings both new hope and fearsome future to the history of human offering convenience of scientific technology and starting epoch-making change in the labor market structure from simple machine work to high skilled professional work on the ball. The big Go Match between the legend Lee Se-Dol (9-Dan pro) and Google DeepMind’s program AlphaGo is sharply thought-provoking. Now the question is whether our education and training system can satisfy the demand of the fourth industrial revolution. We need answers to how we can provide the proper human resources needed by the AI industries, and to how the education and training program should be innovated to lead the AI industries. In this session we are going to search for the directions of development of competent human resources to lead the AI industries and the fourth industrial revolution focusing on the following several points: 1) The future industrial structure and changes of employment system, 2) innovative measures to foster talented to lead the fourth industrial revolution era, 3) how to re-train and upgrade existing skilled workers to satisfy the newly rising industries, and 4) directions of government support policies to nurture and discover capable human resources.

Track C Session 2

Human Resource Development and Employment for Multicultural Family

As of 2015, it is estimated that there are 820,000 members of multicultural families in Korea, including 305,000 marriage immigrants and naturalized Korean citizens, 305,000 spouses, and 208,000 of their children. These numbers are expected to increase constantly to 1 million overall by 2020. (Ministry of Security and Public Administration, Korea 2015). The Korean government policy for multicultural family has mainly focused on supporting them with their mere social adjustment and integration to the Korean society. However, the policy should be complemented with the education and labor policy in an integrated manner from the perspective of human resources development and its utilization. In order to make it possible, it is essential to implement active programs for education and training as well as employment support. Given the increasing trends in the multicultural family HRD policy for multicultural family is a significant issue at a national level for efficient utilization of human resources. In this context, this session aims to provide a chance to discuss how to achieve national human resource development through appropriate human resource development for multicultural family as well as employment and its application.

Track C Session 3

The Prospect of Jobs for the Young and Elderly

Since entering the aging society in 2002, its speed of aging has become the fastest in the world, so that it has been prospected that we will encounter super-aged society soon. In relation to the prospect of jobs for the elderly, the extension of the retirement age for the existing elderly is forecasted to guarantee their incomes as they remain in the labor market for a longer period of time. Because of the rapidly aging society after their retirement, however, now the quality of jobs for the elderly should be more considered than the quantity while institutional supports should focus on this as well.The government’s intervention in the labor market could accelerate job a specific class’ substitution for jobs by distorting the job distribution to generations. The jobs for the young and elderly should maintain complementary relations rather than substitutional relations, and also it would be necessary to put efforts into jointly setting up the long-term norms of the labor market under the voluntary participation and agreement of labor and management. This session aims to induce the social consensus and changes in value though the general review of labor policies and the overall social efforts, to have the prospect of jobs for the young and elderly, and also to discuss measures to gradually change the relevant policies.

Track C Session 4

The Working Population, Are They Happy?

According to the Better Life Index survey published in 2016 by OECD, South Korea ranked 28th among 38 member countries on the quality of life, and continues to decline after 2012. In particular, South Koreans lead a busy, tiresome life that lacks a work-family balance, and is ranked in 36th place regarding average annual working hours, which is among the lowest. This session hopes to address the structural problems and the bitter reality of the work-centered Korean society, which consists of high long-term unemployment rates and unemployment risks, and which cannot simply be resolved by individual workaholic tendencies. It also plans to discuss the tasks that are necessary to accomplish a happy community where future generations can work together, by examining countries like Denmark, Switzerland, and Finland that were s\\ed as the happiest countries in the world by the UN ‘World Happiness Index’.

Track D Session 1

Success Psychology That Transforms the Inferiority Complex into Confidence

There are certain people who are gifted with many talents and abilities, and yet cannot cross over that threshold of success due to certain attitude or behavior that they possess. For example, there could be a long distance runner with great speed and yet weak willpower, a promising intermediary manager with low responsibility, talented young students who are too self-critical, etc. How can we solve such inferiority complex and boost self-confidence? In this session, we will explore the factors that cause inferiority complex and look for solutions or everyday activities that can boost a sense of self-confidence.

Track D Session 2

Can Excellence in Education Be Measured?

As we step into the era of creativity, many countries around the world are emphasizing the importance of education that focuses on students’ creativity. What determines the success of a nation is no longer the mass production as was in the period of industrialization, but the development of creative economy based on innovative ideas. Israeli school education emphasizes creativity as well as innovative venture business, ceaseless challenges towards scientific discovery and technology, productive military system; as a result, it has become a model of successful 21st century developed country. In this session, we will examine how Israel has become the hub of world’s finest scientific technology by exploring the secret to Israeli science education.

What are some of the organizational strategy that can put together talented individuals that can dissolve on their own without an effective management system? In this session, we will invite a representative from NASA and learn what it takes to manage and foster some of the best talents in the world.

Track D Session 3

Realization of Competency-based Society through Innovation of Vocational Education and Training

Global economic slowdown and a shortage of working-age population due to low birth rates and aging population urge us to seek possible ways to cultivate and utilize the human resources effectively. Particularly, innovation in vocational education and training is needed in order to solve the problems of mismatch in the labor market and cultivate talent equipped with the skills required by industries and companies. Korea is looking at Switzerland and Germany as role models to improve the education system. In this session, speakers and discussants will seek for the solutions to realize a competency-based society through the successful settlement of work-learning dual system in Korea, where the work-based learning system has not been settled and acknowledged unlike the European countries.

Track D Session 4

Start Your Own Business!

According to a media poll about the future careers of Korean high schoolers, the most popular was a public servant, the second most a building owner. The number of young adults who put “safeness” and “income” above their interests, self-worth, and aptitudes only continues to rise. To young adults who must head into a world of unemployment problems with no clear answer and a shift in the occupational world that has come from The Fourth Industrial Revolution, the future is less hopeful than it is terrifying. Programs to educate these young adults on entrepreneurship in relation to various problem-solving situations that we face throughout our daily lives are being suggested as a solution. These entrepreneurs will go on to contribute to the widespread creation of jobs. However, despite the national interest and support, Korea’s awareness of the entrepreneurship and business foundation is still very low. Favorability towards entrepreneurs is the lowest of the OECD countries, and while the ideas themselves are rated very highly the idea of taking these ideas and starting a business venture with them is still seen in a negative light. Even existing business ventures usually consist of the livelihood type (i.e. the food service industry) more than the revolutionary, and their average life span is so low the fear of failing causes people to keep others as well as themselves from starting business ventures. But even in this social environment there are those who face life’s struggles in their own way and create their own worth. They are entrepreneurs who did not follow the “formula of success” that consists of getting into a prestigious universities and big company, and instead chose to start up a business and continue what can be seen as reckless challenges every day.
