Singapore Speakers Series

Singapore Speaker Series


As part of our ongoing commitment to constantly refresh and reinvigorate our suite of engagement programmes and initiatives for overseas Singapore, the Overseas Singaporean Unit re-branded our high-profile Distinguished Business Leaders Series, which saw 51 successful runs since its inception in Sydney in 2006 and the newly conceived Evening Series which took shape in San Francisco in August 2012 under the Singapore Speakers Series banner with effect from 17 April 2013.
About the Singapore Speakers Series
The Singapore Speakers Series is a high-signature event aimed at fostering greater interaction between eminent Singapore-based leaders and the overseas Singaporean community residing in cities with significant pockets of overseas Singaporeans such as New York, London, Sydney, Melbourne, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

The series will feature prominent Singapore business leaders from the private sector as well as distinguished public sector luminaries who have made significant contributions to Singapore's nation-building efforts. Through first-hand accounts of these top leaders, overseas Singaporeans can keep abreast of industry trends, developments in Singapore’s business and economic landscape and gain fresh insights on job and business opportunities back home.
