Over 100 attendees heard from the speakers – Ms Chiam Lu Lin, Executive Director of IP Academy and Deputy Chief Executive of IPOS, Mr Daniel Poh of Marks & Clerk Singapore, Mr Wong Heng Loon of Amadeus Singapore, and Mr Edmund Kok of Amica Law – and networked with patent attorneys and hiring firms as well.
IP Academy Alumni Networking Dinner
On 18 February 2016, over 40 members of IP Academy’s alumni gathered to find out about trends and happenings in the IP sector, and to network over dinner and beer. Participants also listened to speakers from IPOS and Thomson Reuters, as they touched on the new IP Technology Consultant (IPTC) registry and on patent trends in 2016.
The evening event saw two booths set up by Thomson Reuters and the Institution of Engineers Singapore, to attend to queries and registrations for discounted products for IPA Alumni members and the IPTC respectively.
The IPA Alumni comprises graduates of the Graduate Certificate in IP Law, Masters of Science in IP Management, and the WIPO Singapore Summer School.
