HBS Club of Singapore 5 Year Anniversary GALA

November 9, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:45 pm SMT

It has been five years since our founding and it’s a moment to celebrate! The HBS Club of Singapore is pleased to invite you to our second Gala Dinner to celebrate both our vibrant and thriving community and the milestone of completing five years serving not just our alumni but indeed the broader Singapore society.


 We are very excited to share with you the stellar line up for our two panels at the HBS Club of Singapore’s Gala Dinner on Nov 9th. Each of the panelists have had wide ranging impact in their organizations and businesses, and their experience and passion will make for extremely exciting discussions. We will begin with our Panel on Building a Successful Business in SEA focusing on the business climate and opportunities in our region, especially those emanating from an increasingly exciting tech world. This will be followed by our second panel of the evening Decoding a Complex World where discussions will range from geopolitics and the ever-volatile world we live in.


There will be plenty of time to network and connect with not only the panelists but also esteemed guests ranging from various Ambassadors and business leaders. We also want to provide an opportunity for classmates to reconnect and will have tables organized by Class for dinner where we do have a quorum of 10 people from direct or exec ed classes.


During the Gala dinner we will also be giving out a print worth $2000 from Art Works in a raffle draw (with free installation in your home) and our Chairman and President will share with you some of the great programs the club is running in Singapore.


We’ve had more than 70% tickets/ seats taken up. Please RSVP and buy your tickets now and come celebrate and reconnect with all things Soldiers Field!
