Around 25 participants from OUB’s various senior management levels attended a one-day of Design Thinking and Business Canvas Model Workshop at Hilton Double Tree in Kuala Lumpur. Prof. Dr. Murali Raman and Dr Robert Jeyakumar trained them to stay ahead of the competition with the right tools and know-how to effectively manage the digital tsunami in the business area. This programme is a starter for many other future collaborations with UOB as their Design Thinking Solution partner.

The session was conducted in fostering the students to think and solve problems more effectively.
