Don’t get me wrong: I’m not saying that these people who have been lamenting the state of talent in Singapore are wrong. They have certainly got a point. But it strikes me that everyone has got a talent problem. If local companies are not even successfully reaching out to the best their local universities have to offer, then perhaps they should try that first before complaining.
