I’m in Singapore this week to do five presentations on multiple intelligences sponsored by Wyeth Nutrition. On March 20, I spoke in the afternoon to 40 health care professionals at the KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Singapore (click here for handouts) and in the evening to about 140 pediatricians, neonatologists, nurses, and other health care professionals at the Fullerton Hotel at a meeting co-sponsored by the Singapore Paediatric Society (see photo above) (click here for handouts). Then, yesterday, I spoke to a group of supermarket buyers at a product launch for Wyeth Nutrition’s S-26 PE Gold infant formula (click here for handouts). Today, I’m speaking on ”Awakening Your Child’s Natural Genius” to a group of parents and other interested parties at the SmartKids Asia Expo 2014, which is being held at the Singapore Expo (click here for handouts). After the talk, I’ll meet with bloggers and media people for an informal discussion over high tea at Table Manners restaurant nearby. Finally, tomorrow, I’ll do a workshop on multiple intelligences at the SmartKids Asia Expo 2014 (click here for handouts), before heading back to the United States on Tuesday.
It’s been quite a busy week, but I’ve been enjoying meeting new people, working with the wonderful people at Wyeth Nutrition, speaking with doctors, tradespeople, parents, and others who are interested in the connection between multiple intelligences, early childhood education, and nutrition. I should mention here that Wyeth Nutrition fully supports breastfeeding as the optimal nutrition for infants. But if the mother cannot breastfeed or chooses not to do so, Wyeth Nutrition’s line of infant formulas offers a healthy alternative. I’d like to thank Rene Wipperich, country business manager for Wyeth Nutrition/Singapore & Malaysia, and all the other fine people at Wyeth Nutrition who have made my stay in Singapore one that I’ll always remember!
