The POINT for all Points
As a regional trainer and speaker, the ability to communicate effectively to different audience will set myself apart from others.
In the area of corporate and personal communication, the key is to make a powerful POINT after you delivered your presentation. There are many great communicators to learn from not only from the West, but from Asia too. Where can I gather them?
POINT Magazine is my answer! It is the first Business Communications Magazine for CEOs in Asia.
A Different Business Magazine
I was given a copy of the magazine on 1 Dec, 2010 during Walking with Dinosaurs 1st performance in Singapore Indoor Stadium by my good friend, Mr Eric Feng, himself, the founder of the magazine.
Over coffee session a few days before the year was over, i asked him what is the unique selling preposition of POINT
“Instead of reporting the latest business news and trends like most business magazines, POINT wants to bring your attention to some of the most influential and inspiring CEOs of Asia! Through our interviews with them, we will reveal their communication best practices and take you step-by-step on how to solve your most pressing communication challenges at work” – Eric

One of the best things in life is to be surrounded by high achievers and great motivators. It both motivates and challenge you never to rest on our laurels in times of success. There is always a quiet need to be in combat zone rather than comfort zone. Eric Feng is one individual with both form and substance among his peers.
Here, Eric shares 7 ways to get the most out of a POINT.
What can we look ahead for future issues?
POINT is a quarterly issue and the 2nd will be due in Feb, 2011, 3rd will be due in May 2011 and 4th issue should be out by Aug 2011.
- Nov – Crisis Communication (Lessons from leaders in crisis featuring CEOs of DBS, Great Eastern and Toyota)
- Feb – Influence (Six sources of influence that leaders leverage on to change mindsets and ignite action)
- May – Communication Inside-Out (Learn the art and science of building trust and alignment in your organization)
- Aug – Point’s Top 10 Inspiring Communicators of Asia, featuring MM Lee
As we were discussing about Brand Communications and Brand Advocate in Marketing Communications, we brewed the idea of me contributing some content in the coming issues. These will be from my consultancy experience with reputable clients like Walking with Dinosaurs and local SPA giant Mary Chia.
I was so excited that I volunteer to bring Eric’s POINT to Vietnam and give it to my friend Duong; CEO of TalentPool. (see picture below) and Dubai during my speaking engagement in Social Media Enterprise Forum.
If you are a CEO, you must have a copy on your desk, only 1500 premium copies will be printed and hand-delivered directly to the CEOs in Singapore while 30,000 business leaders around Asia will get to read the magazine online via www.PointMagOnline.com
The reason for hand-delivering POINT is to demonstrate the importance of “personal touch” in business communication. That’s why I choose to do the same for Duong to align myself to the POINT’s branding
I brought along the inaugural issue of 1st Asia CEO Communications magazine – POINT and present it to Duong, the CEO of TalentPool in Vietnam. It is a magazine started by Eric Feng
