Sarawak Convention Bureau's (SCB) Global Marketing & Communications Director, Mrs Amelia Roziman, was part of a line-up of notable speakers for "ICCA's got talent: unlocking the creativity amongst your staff and partners." This session was part of the Tuesday Education series that took place during the 52 nd ICCA Congress in Shanghai, China.

Commented Roziman, "I'm thrilled to be presenting at the ICCA Congress in Shanghai." For this session Roziman performed the Ngajat Pua, which is a traditional dance of the Iban tribe in Sarawak. This presentation went beyond the customary cultural dances, she explained. "We want to turn local encounters into a meaningful exchange of business ideas."

According to Roziman, "Creativity has always been pivotal in the way we work at SCB," and this session helped to highlight the importance of thinking out of the box to win more bids or encourage teamwork," she added.

Originating from ICCA's annual talent show 20 years ago, this session explored how companies can benefit from exploiting the skills, passions and potential of its staff and partners.  Short stage performances illustrated the range of abilities that can make a business difference, help to win a bid, save money, or inspire staff to greater heights. Discussions on how to incorporate these ideas followed that can be incorporated into an organization's business philosophy or corporate lifestyle.

Moderated by Eric de Groot (managing partner, MindMeeting BV, Netherlands) and Mike van der Vivjer (managing partner, MindMeeting BV, Netherlands), Amelia will be joined by presenters: Angeline Lue ( KL Convention Centre), Padraic Gilligan (managing director, Ovation Global DMC, INCON Group, Ireland), Ryoji Maeshima ( Fukuoka Convention & Visitors Bureau, Japan) and Sarah Wang and team ( China National Convention Centre, China-P.R).
