Each semester, the Wee Kim Wee Centre brings to our campus distinguished CEOs from various backgrounds, businesses and industry. The goal is to have these heads of organizations/corporations come and share their visions, dreams, stories so that we gain a better understanding of how they operate and how they run their teams. It is rare to find good opportunities to meet with these CEOs as their schedules are so hectic that they hardly-as one of them told us-have time for themselves!So it is wonderful that they have all gone out of their way to pencil us in their busy and very full diaries. We are presenting the complete list for Semester 1 so that everyone can know who is speaking when and decide which CEO/s he/she wants to hear. As is obvious from the line-up, this decision could be a challenging one.
Looking forward to seeing you at the acclaimed Wee Kim Wee Centre CEO Talks.
