Dear Members and Friends

Formulating a business strategy is the easy bit. Executing it is not and yet it is key for a business to move forward and to sustain its growth. Most strategies fail because they are not fully implemented. This is why your Chamber is focussed on strategy execution.

Join me on 3 October for the first of two deep dives into the art of strategy execution. You will hear from the following panel of business leaders who are practitioners of the art and who will share practical tips with you:

•   Mr Jonathan Asherson, Chairman, Rolls-Royce Singapore Pte Ltd and Chairman, Singapore International Chamber of Commerce

Mr Dennis Cheong, Vice President - Lubricants, Supply Chain, Shell Eastern Trading (Pte) Ltd

Mr Gerard Toh, Partner, Assurance and Business Advisory Services, KPMG in Singapore

Mr Darren Harrison, Co-Founder & CEO, bizzi.co

For full details of the event and to register, please click here.

I look forward to your participation and to hearing your insights and  experiences.

Have another productive week ahead.

Warmest regards

Victor Mills
Chief Executive
