leadership panel: going from zero to hero – may 5, 6:00 PM
Hear them speak on what it takes to build a successful business from start up to IPO, managing large corporate teams, their strive to 'break the glass ceiling', the courage to fail and perspectives to working across a diverse Asia region.
If you have always aspire to be an IPO Entrepreneur or run a Global Operation leading a 1000+ team – this is the leadership event you must not miss!
Similar to last year, there will be a networking session prior and post the panel. All attendance is welcome to pitch for a 3 months mentorship. 2 of our mentees last year each had a very successful outcome for the mentorship, with one receiving a promotion and the other successfully landing a job in Singapore shortly after her relocation into Singapore.
Event will be held at the new 2MM talent hub @ SOTA, a networking space for talents and more.
All ticket proceeds will be going to the Halogen Foundation.
