“Shape the Future: Smarter, Better and Faster”
– delivering value through operational excellence
If business agility enables rapid adjustments to effect change, and sustained innovation allows an
organisation to stay on top of the game, then operational excellence is the epitome of orchestrating
such capabilities and resources across functional disciplines to drive continuous improvement and
financial growth.
With “Shape the Future: Smarter, Better and Faster” as the theme focusing on operational excellence,
this year’s APLA Annual Regional Conference puts the focus on rethinking and revitalising our
management practices, organizational processes and structures for maximum efficiency and
effectiveness so that great performance can be sustained in the face of many challenges in today’s
ever-changing environment.
The Government Lottery Office of Thailand, with support from Singapore Pools on the business
programme, has lined up a power-packed 3-day conference to share the latest consumer trends,
business insights and best practices from renowned thought leaders, lottery operators and APLA
Sponsors. One of the key highlights is the introduction of “In Conversation” sessions. This discussion
format between speakers and moderators will immerse participants in a lively exchange of ideas while
broadening our minds on how corporate social responsibility and people assets can be harnessed in
innovative ways. We have also retained the popular “Debate Session” to contemplate the divergent
views on whether aggressive marketing by gaming operators makes us irresponsible ones.
Highlights of the business programme include:


of Singapore, and one of Foreign Policy's Top Global Thinkers in 2010 & 2011
