What drives success in Asia?

How did the pioneers do what they did, how are they planning their succession?

What are their views on life and family?

After six seasons of Channel News Asia's Power List Asia, with 73 episodes high-powered guests, over 26,000 manhours of pre- and post-production and 130,000 airmiles, comes Power Talk. Distilling the very best and most memorable conversations with various head honchos, Karen Lam sits down (not on television this time) to compile the best business ideas, personal philosophies, attitudes and intriguing stories into common themes of leadership and entrepreneurship in Asia.

Featuring more than 20 Powerlisters and a range of topics such as crisis management, brand building, expanding westward and succession planning, Power Talk is a must-read for any Asian entrepreneur on the cusp of that next league.
Karen Lam has been a media and business consultant for over 20 years, helping organisations in the region in the areas of presentations and media communication. In 2012, she took on another role, returning to her first love in television as host and series producer of the business personality series, Power List Asia, on Channel News Asia.

Karen started off her career as a broadcast journalist with the general news desk of Singapore Broadcasting Corporation (now known as MediaCorp). She covered local stories interviewing politicians, business people and other newsmakers in the local and international scenes. She later went on to anchor the nightly news.

When the opportunity to explore the world of corporate training arose, Karen jumped at it to get perspectives into people development and business operations from a variety of industries and countries. The opportunities she's had to rub shoulders with captains of industry, to walk the factory floors with them and hear from the people who keep the organization running — both on-and off-camera, as a journalist and as a consultant — has given her rare insights into the intricacies and vicissitudes of business Asia.
