Current Business Challenges in Asia
A growth rate of 5.0% is expected for East and Southeast Asia in 2017. This outstrips the projected growth of many regions. Inflation is expected to rise slightly to 2.6%. The possibility of a break in U.S. ties with The Phillipines could destabalize the Asia-Pacific region.
Singapore: Singapore's economy has been robust for decades, however, there was a slower rate of growth towards the end of 2016. The manufacturing sector has been sluggish. Slower growth is projected due to an aging population, smaller labour force, and increased demand for social security and health care. Companies are attempting to enourage older workers to stay in the workforce longer or return to work after retirement.
Malaysia: While Malaysia's GDP growth was over 4% in 2016, economic growth has been impacted by falling oil prices and this has lowered exports and the value of the Malaysian ringitt. The central bank has been taking steps to shore up the currency. The manufacturing sector performed strongly and a key to future growth wil be identify new markets to replace sectors in decline.
Japan: While the performance of the Japanese economy was healthy in 2016, there has been a decline in the value of the yen following the 2016 US election. There is concern that policies of the new U.S. government could result in a decline in markets for Japanese products. Growth of 0.9% is expected for 2017.
Some of the challenges companies in East and Southeast Asia face include:
- the need to identify and tap into hidden opportunities for growth
- discovering new market niches to reduce the design for some products
- managing multi-generational workforces
- fostering innovation to generate new options
- charting a course in the face of change and uncertainty
- managing fast-paced, rapidly changing organizations
- promoting cross-functional teamwork

Malaysia & Singapore
In Southeast Asia, Jungle Survival is our flagship programme. Our Visexecutaries: Apprentice Team Building was initially designed for companies in Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur was the first place we offered it and we have offered this session in Asia more often than we have delivered it in other parts of the world.
A key component of our retreats in Singapore and Malaysia is an experience of the local culture. We highly recommend a visit to the Sarawak Culture Village in Kuching, an urban safari around historical Melaka or Kuching, or a visit to a tea plantaion in the Cameron Highlands. Homestays in indigenous communities are also possible.
In Japan, team building simulations we can offer include Winter Team Building, Mountain Team Building, and Visexecutaries: Apprentice Team Building.
As an alternative to a simulation, we suggest building a customized Japanese style team building agenda for executive retreats incorporating the variety of cultural experiences that Japan offers.
Whether your group selects Japanese style cooking challenges, a traditional tea ceremony, or traditional martial arts like Iaido, a professional business facilitator will help your team mine each and every experience to determine how what you learned can be used to improve team and organizational performance.
Custom Team Building
At Executive Oasis International, we customize each and every team building simulation based on your organization's specific issues and your objectives. This is not lip service. Participant profiles and learning inventories give every participant input as we shape the content and approach.
Select from our own mini-inventory or, for an additional fee, an emotional intelligence (EQ) or HBDI inventory.
If none of our existing simulations "hit the mark", rest assured, our capabilities extend to custom designing an approach to address your organization's specific needs.
If your organization requires more intensive support, we provide long term consulting and facilitate on-site, brainstorming and problem-solving sessions.
I admire the style in which the session was conducted and the manner certainly catalyzed active participation and discussions. The real eye opener was that all participants were required to apply in a real life situation; within a specific time frame; all relevant business principles.Ooi Joo Hong, Deputy General Manager (Marketing), Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd (Malaysia)
This was terrific team building, surpassed my expectations and provided an entirely new experience.Ian Lum You, Vice-President, Sales, Dial Corporation
Anne is an excellent mentor who taught me years ago how the training profession operated. With her as my coach, I progressed from being a telephone customer service rep to being a full time trainer in less than a year. A few years after that, I was promoted to Manager of Call Centre Training at one of the largest telecom companies in Canada.Mike Aoki, President, Reflective Keynotes
Visexecutaries helped me to get down to apply marketing and strategy tools to a real life experience in a competitive environment.Winnifred Wong Siew Peng, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Malaysia)
