“Being a member of the Singapore committee for 100 Women in Finance has been hugely beneficial for me, especially in my move from London to Singapore. I have met so many like-minded, interesting inspiring women via the array of events the volunteers organise. Chairing the committee and working on events has helped in developing professional skills outside of my day job.”
