CMAA-Asia Pacific Pte Ltd has formalized a partnership with the Singapore Training and Development Association (STADA) and this partnership was sealed with an MOU which was concluded in Singapore on September 12.
STADA is a forty-two old organization which was established in 1972 by a group of training professionals from diverse industries who are both committed and passionate to learn and share best practices.
At the signing ceremony, Robert Yeo, chief executive officer of STADA said, “As an organization, we are committed to act as a conduit to facilitate the transfer of skills and technology of human capital capabilities to enhance the growth of individual human capital development (HCD) practitioners, corporations and our international networks.”
STADA fulfils this role through community of practice in different HCD domains, offering professional development opportunities and networking activities.
“By partnering with CMAA-Asia Pacific, we hope to bring growth to the HCD community in the club and hospitality industry as we push boundaries by using technologies, best practices and knowledge to achieve thought leadership in the field of learning across generations and to meet the diverse needs of the learning community,” Yeo added.
Commenting on the MOU, Mike Sebastian, president of CMAA-Asia Pacific said, “We are putting together strategic partnerships with organisations that can play a vital role in helping to improve and grow the quality of human capital in the hospitality industry in the region and STADA has been identified as one such agency that can play an important role in impacting how we can collectively impact the club and hospitality industry in the region in positive ways.”
CMAA-Asia Pacific’s director of education, Lawrence Young said, “With STADA coming on board, we now have alliances with best of breed organisations to help us deliver quality training and learning experiences to the club and hospital industry and most importantly, most of the programmes that we will be offering together with our education partners will come with valid and recognized certification.”
“This partnership is a significant milestone because it reflects STADA’s efforts to partner with professionals to provide solutions to organizations in the areas of change management, organization development, employee engagement, cultural change, leadership development, professional certification, coaching and mentoring, and team innovation,” stated Lim Khia Tat, president of STADA’s management committee.
CMAA-Asia Pacific now has partnership agreements in place with Training Vision and SDH Institute and a few more strategic partnerships are expected to be announced shortly.
