· Books,Alumni,Strategy

USQ Chairman, Dr Janson Yap, launched his second book, "Wow, how did you know that" at an exclusive launch event at the Reading Room on the 23rd November, 2017.

The 275-page book, featuring 15 contributors, including USQ Alumni Dr Luke van der Laan, Lex Lee and Leesa Soulodre, is the brainchild of Dr Janson Yap, chief innovation officer of Deloitte Southeast Asia. Other contributors include a Singapore Billionaire, 3 millennials and an Olympian.

"A different world requires a different game", is the mantra of author Dr Janson Yap.

The book discusses risk intelligence from different perspectives, such as in personal relationships, professional decisions, sporting ambitions, business ventures and financial commitments.


Luke van der Laan sets the scene with his foresight on Asia Pacific's economic risks and futures.

Leesa Soulodre shares her thoughts on the Essentials of Future Corporate Governance, the DNA of governance, reputation risk management and reinventing enterprise architecture.

Lex Lee outlines the SMART methodology, a framework for the application of risk intelligence.

In his chapter titled Dedicated to Win, 28-year-old Olympian, Derek Wong shares his thoughts about the risks - such as putting his studies on hold after his O Levels - he took in his 20-year badminton career, eight of which were as a professional.

Priced at $30 per copy, Wow! How Did You Know That? is expected to be sold in major bookstores and online from March.
