SG Buzz

 
Launched in October 2007 by the Overseas Singaporean Unit, SG Buzz is a networking programme featuring luminaries from diverse fields like the arts, entertainment, sports and entrepreneurship, though not limited to these. Speakers hail from either niche or non-traditional fields and industries. These informal sessions allow for intimate networking and interaction with the speaker and among Overseas Singaporeans.
 
SG Buzzes have been held in cities like Los Angeles, Brisbane, Manchester and Guangzhou. Past speakers include George Quek (Chairman of Bread Talk), Douglas Foo (Chief Executive Officer of Apex-Pal International Ltd) and Dennis Foo (Chief Executive Officer of St James Holdings Ltd).
