Dear Members and Friends

Just like anywhere else in the world, companies in Singapore are always looking for talent. There is never enough especially when you are expanding and need trusted talent to manage overseas offices.

MNCs and SMEs have exactly the same challenge with this: motivating their trusted talent to take overseas assignments especially in South East Asia. ASEAN is our backyard and is our future. It is essential that our future business leaders increase their knowledge of the region in order to sustain themselves and their businesses.

Singapore is a cocoon or comfort zone for far too many talented Singaporeans. Overseas assignments are essential for career and skills development. No-one should expect to be in the running for C-suite or top jobs without having overseas experience. It just makes commercial and corporate sense.

I recommend you attend a very relevant event organized by Enterprise Singapore in collaboration with SICC and SBF on 8 October 2018 on Enterprise Singapore's SEA Talent Development Programmes. These are designed to help you help your trusted talent and your business. Click here to register.

With warmest regards
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
