Dear Members and Friends

I’m a big fan of Susan Chong who, as you know, is one of Singapore’s most respected and successful entrepreneurs. Her business is Greenpac (S) Pte Ltd.

Susan is also President of the E50 Association which aims to increase the capabilities of SMEs. We met recently to discuss the role of mentoring in business. Susan and I want to explore the possibility of senior executives in MNCs mentoring SME executives.

MNC executives could think of this as an extension of the mentoring they already provide to SMEs in their own supply chains. Mentoring is also a great way of giving back to the community at large and placing purpose over profit.

If you are an executive working in a MNC and would like to know more about this initiative, please send me an email to [email protected] and state your area of interest and expertise.

With my thanks and best regards.

Yours faithfully
Victor Mills
Chief Executive
