Learning Ecosystem To Upskill Learners

SEAC, Southeast Asia's SMART learning leader today launch their 456 Smart Learning Ecosystem to address the slow rate at which the education and training industries are evolving their learning approaches . SEAC has innovated and refined its approach over the last ten years to better meet learners needs in this new era of rapid change and upskilling. SEAC's 456 learning experience solution integrates content, technology, design, and experience expertise to reimagine learning by using their trademarked 456 methodologies.

The solution begins with defining the five phases that a learner must go through to ensure buy-in, value, retention, and application: essentially, a bridge across their skill gap. Following that, SEAC weaves four distinct learning lines to support the learners in crossing that bridge to their future. Finally, SEAC incorporates targeted lab experiences to assist learners in accelerating and applying their new skills with confidence and impact. SEAC's 4-Line Learning, 5-Phase Development, and 6 Learning Labs are a technology-enabled ecosystem and toolkit for effectively closing the massive skill gaps learners' face.

4-Line Learning: Weaving four distinct modes of learning, OnLine, InLine, FrontLine, and BeeLine, to foster community and momentum for maximum learning impact.

5-Phase Development: The five stages that learners must go through to effectively buy in, learn, retain, and apply new skills, mindsets, and tools. The suggested order is as follows:

-- Phase 1: Introduce & Enroll: What is the significance of what I am about to learn? What is the value to me?

-- Phase 2: Baseline and Measure: What does good look like in the context of what I'm about to learn? What am I doing now? Where and with whom might I apply this new mindset/skillset?

--Phase 3: Connect and Inspire: What impact can we have if we truly succeed? How will I/we collaborate with others to learn and grow as a community?

--Phase 4: Build and Integrate: How will I apply this content to my work, and where and with whom will I apply this new mindset/skill?

--Phase 5: Consolidate and Sustain: What mindsets, skills, and tools are the most useful? Where and how will I put them to use and keep the momentum?

6 Learning Labs: Short, powerful, targeted interventions added at the right moment to speed up and boost learning and application. These are some examples:

-- Unpacking: Unpacking for greater comprehension and application

-- Skill Practice: 'Acting out' current situations with my new skills and tools.

-- S.T.A.R. Application and Reflection: Planning, executing, and reflecting on applying my learning in situations in my work/life that I am attempting to change,

-- Group/Individual Coaching: Support for action learning projects and applications on a group, team, and individual basis.

-- Impact Presentations: Documenting and sharing the outcomes of my learning with others.

-- Communities of Practice: A group of lifelong learners who share a passion for sustaining change.

By combining these three learning design and delivery frameworks yield an effective, learner-focused experience that reduces unnecessary content, activities, and distractions in favor of context and application.

"This ever-changing environment we live in today has brought us great technological advancements as well as unexpected problems," said Arinya Talerngsri, SEAC Chief Capability Officer, Managing Director, and Founder. "Smart Learning is still getting used to its new normal. As a critical solution provider in Thailand, we are still transitioning from "short-term surge" to "long-term transformation" while overcoming other obstacles. However, our most recent educational innovations are producing astounding results. The context and learner needs are prioritized over content in SEAC's upskilling methodology. As a result, our star 456 Learning Experience is user-oriented and focuses on learners' immediate needs, as should any similar education and training framework."

SEAC leads the Thai Smart Learning market and provides high-quality, all-inclusive smart education to a diverse range of learners and organizations seeking to upgrade their capabilities. SEAC are the only holistic SMART Learning Service provider and hold 35% of the Thai upskilling market. The Company created a learning -experience for people of all age that serves as a bridge to the other side and a better self and future.

SEAC's innovative 456 Learning Experience encourages learners to find the best and most useful ways to learn, apply, and grow by balancing out other out-of-date L&D models. "Practicality and creativity are important parts of who we are as an organization, and they are deeply ingrained in our DNA," Ms. Arinya Talerngsri continued. "We have obligations to everyone, whether they are users or not. Gaining a larger share of the $7 trillion global consumer market for education is both difficult and worthwhile. We will give back to the industry and rely on the capital market to assist us in empowering our learners and partner organizations through learning."

Established in Thailand, and with more than 30 years of experience in people development, SEAC has provided innovative and practical approaches to over 2 million learners from more than 1,000 companies, especially in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, and Singapore. SEAC helps them to improve their life through bespoke transformative learning experiences. The Company reimagines how people can upskill and reskill themselves. By integrating learner context, content, process, community, and technology, SEAC has built a complete smart learning ecosystem that serves the needs of learners across generations, industries, life changes, and organizational levels.

Miss Universe and Mouawad unveil Force for Good Jan 2023

Miss Universe and Mouawad unveil Force for Good Jan 2023

The Miss Universe Organization today unveiled "The Crown Number 12: Force for Good", crafted by world-renowned luxury jeweler Mouawad. The new crown, with pear-shaped blue sapphires surrounded by diamonds and valued at approximately USD 5.58 million, will be the prestigious mark of honor for the winner of the 71st MISS UNIVERSE® Competition. The event will take place on January 14, 2023, in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

A unique, bespoke work of art and craft, the Force for Good crown emanates Mouawad's passion for crafting the extraordinary, featuring the meticulous setting of sapphires and diamonds, whose design is replete with symbolism. Reflecting the point that significant change does not happen in an instant, the base of the crown is set with diamonds symbolizing the status quo. From the base upwards, rippling wave motifs reflect the momentum of change, with their varying sizes portraying that this momentum gains ground gradually through advocacy at different moments and places, to audiences large and small, over time.

"It has been an honor to craft a new crown for The Miss Universe Organization, and to create a new sparkling chapter in the story of Mouawad Miss Universe crowns, said Mouawad Co-guardian Fred Mouawad. "The Mouawad Miss Universe Force for Good Crown is a work of extraordinary craftsmanship, completely crafted and set and by hand total 993 stones setting, featuring 110.83 carat of blue sapphire and 48.24 carat of white diamond in a design that evokes The Miss Universe Organization's belief in a future forged by women who push the limits of what's possible and the incredible women from around the world who advocate for positive change."

Upon closer inspection, the culmination of these wave-like curls at the base emulates a serpent's head, symbolizing the challenges involved in swaying opponents and those with a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. As the eye moves upward from the base of the crown, the color gradient changes from the glistening white of diamonds to the warm blue of sapphires, deepening in intensity toward the pinnacle of the crown. At the top, a stunning of Royal Blue sapphire pear-shape 45.14 carat displays a depth of color emblematic of the goodness that can be achieved through persistent action and of the hope for a brighter future.

Anne Jakapong Jakrajutatip, Chief Executive Officer of JKN Global Group Public Company Limited, as the new owner of The Miss Universe Organization, said: "The Miss Universe 2022 Force for Good Crown stands for a graceful reincarnation of The Miss Universe Organization's long-standing values and heritage as a guiding light, shining bright to the future glory. The new crown is also the dazzling illustration of both the challenges and rewards that come when young women advocate for causes close to their heart and strive make an impact on the world."

"As we are stepping into the new era of women's empowerment, The Miss Universe Organization will continue to be a global organization run by women for women with a promise to serve as an inspirational platform that celebrates diverse women, supporting them to realize their ambition and build self-confidence, while evolving the brand over time to be more relevant and appealing to the next generation. Our new ambition is to instill the sense of passion for 'transformational leadership' among us all, with firm belief that everyone can lead, to be successful and achieve their life goals. With this future-oriented approach, the Miss Universe brand is keen to take on a pivotal role in involving and engaging people on a journey toward social inclusion, gender equality and environmental sustainability," added Anne Jakapong.

The "MISS UNIVERSE x MOUAWAD: Unveiling the new crown "Force for Good", the New Emblem of Beautifully Confident" press conference revealed the new crown held in TRUE ICON HALL, 7th floor, ICONSIAM. Bangkok, Thailand, and has been witnessed by over 150 local media and VIPs. The event was also broadcast via JKN 18 TV channel and live streaming on Miss Universe YouTube channel and JKN18 Facebook page, attended by thousands of international media.

The partnership between The Miss Universe Organization and Mouawad was formed in 2019, which saw winners of a prestigious competition, MISS UNIVERSE® honored with crowns crafted by Mouawad.

Anne Jakapong Jakrajutatip said she was excited to bring the new crown to the stage of the 71st MISS UNIVERSE® Competition herself. The event will take place on Saturday, January 14, 2023, at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States.

Bangkok Beauty Show 2022

Bangkok Beauty Show 2022

Organized by KINTEX (Korea International Exhibition Center), the 6th K-Beauty Expo Bangkok and the 3rd Bangkok Beauty Show 2022" will be held for 3 days from 15th – 17th of December 2022 at BITEC (Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center) with the aim to update the latest trends in the K-Beauty industry and open new business opportunities for companies from both Thailand and South Korea.

Under the theme "Where beauty blooms and cosmetics professionals come together", this year's expo will feature more than 100 companies from South Korea and 50 companies from Thailand and international, making it the exhibition with the largest number of South Korean companies participating in beauty fairs held in Thailand.

Hwa Young Lee, President of KINTEX, explained "The Thai market is one of South Korea's five largest cosmetics exporters and is the largest cosmetics market, with an overall cosmetics market size of 6 trillion KRW (around $4.4bn). It is also regarded as the base market for companies looking to expand into Southeast Asia. The recent rise of 'Hallyu' (also known as the South Korean Wave) in Southeast Asia through Netflix and K-POP is expected to increase the demand for South Korean cosmetic products even further, providing an opportunity for companies seeking entrance into the Southeast Asian market."

This exhibition will bring together all the promising K-beauty trends. The South Korean beauty industry is focusing on "Clean Beauty" products using eco-friendly packaging materials or excluding animal-based ingredients, on "Smart Beauty" items enabling intensive beauty care at households, and on "Hair Care" related products with rising number of populations suffering from hair loss.

The exhibition also provides an opportunity for international cultural exchange to promote K-culture. The Korean Makeup Artists Association and Hair & Beauty Magazine of Thailand will collaborate to hold the " International K-Beauty Fair & Hair Show 2022" and will host an international makeup contest. Makeup artists will participate in the categories of makeup, hair, and nail art, with the

following categories: bridal makeup, fashion fantasy makeup, character makeup, art mask, and body painting for the makeup category; creative cutting and styling for the hair category; and salon art and flat art for the nail category.

KINTEX has been focusing on K-Beauty's international expansion continuously since 2016. In Thailand, where KINTEX first entered as the overseas market, KINTEX launched a local exhibition brand called "Bangkok Beauty Show" in 2018. While "K-Beauty Expo Bangkok" presents "K-Beauty", the "Bangkok Beauty Show" presents "Southeast Asian Beauty," differentiating and making competitive KINTEX's "K-Beauty Expo Bangkok" from other beauty exhibitions held in Thailand. Through the localization of the "Bangkok Beauty Show", KINTEX has continuously strengthened its network with Thai associations and organizations, further enhancing its entry into the Thai beauty market. Currently, the Korean Cosmetic Association (KCA), Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), The National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Thai Cosmetic Cluster Trade Association (TCOS), and Chamber of Commerce and Board of Trade of Thailand (TCC) are participating as official sponsors of the K-Beauty Expo Bangkok.

K-Beauty Expo Bangkok and Bangkok Beauty Show will be the last exhibition of the year to present among the series of K-Beauty Expos that kicked off in Taiwan and Indonesia in August and South Korea in October. The consecutive success of the three previous exhibitions confirmed the influence of "Hallyu (Korean Wave)" and K-Beauty in the Southeast Asian beauty market, and the upcoming exhibition in Bangkok is expected to reassure the growing interest of K-culture in the Southeastern area.
