Testimonials from Attendees

“As a business leader, we play a critical role in setting the overall company goals, provide directions and motivate employees to boost productivity so as to drive maximum performance. Identifying internal talents particularly Singaporean workers is important so as to give high potential employees more responsibility to excel and prepare talented middle managers for the transition to senior leadership through mentoring and coaching. This way, it will attract and retain local talents further developing the leadership pipeline the company needs for its growth and internationalisation plans.”

- Mr Neo Kah Kiat, Vice-Chairman of WAF and Founder of Neo Group Limited

"The learning journey hosted by entrepreneurs for fellow entrepreneurs is a good way to help SMEs be exposed to best practices from their peers. This platform allows us to mutually share, learn and mentor each other to build a more robust HR in our companies."

- Mr Ken Koh, Group CEO of Yang Kee Logistics Pte Ltd
