Endowus Leadership Forum 2023

About the event

In today’s hurried, complex and volatile world, leadership is all the more critical for success. It is increasingly clear too that there are many paths to being a successful leader, whether in a small team, a start-up, or in a large corporation. 

In conjunction with International Women’s Day, Endowus is proud to bring together top leaders to discuss ideas under the themes of influence and empowerment. How are leaders pushing for progress and change, to bring about refreshed ideas to respond to various forms of disruption? How do they build the right culture, empower teams, and make the best possible decisions in a VUCA world? 

The forum hopes to bring together both big ideas while celebrating our own path to success. Learn how top corporate leaders have built their careers and journeyed through different life stages of their professional pursuits. Then pick up guiding principles on how different individuals can build a vibrant career while planning your finances through your current life stage, with advice from mentors and investment experts.

Expect a session of thoughtful discussion and networking among leaders and leaders-to-be.

Keynote panel: Rethinking Finance

Finance is as old as 3,000 BC — money is needed as an enabler for commerce, trade, and self-actualisation. Fast forward to modern times, and we are seeing new innovations in investment options, and the rising call for financial institutions to support ESG considerations.

From meeting financial gaps among small businesses to retirement preparation, what are the key gaps in finance today, and how are leaders in the financial world working to tackle these business opportunities? In our opening session, we gather leaders from one of the biggest industries in Singapore, to find out how they are tackling these topics head-on.

Moderated by: Min Axthelm, Director of Investment Research, Endowus

  • Sabrina Gan, Head of Southeast Asia and Country Head of Singapore, Fidelity International
  • Dora Seow, CEO, Natixis Investment Managers Singapore
  • Cindy Tan, CEO, GMO Singapore 

Changemakers session: Business Builders

How do you become a leader? Is it a big burst of radical change? And if you’re part of leading broader business transformation, how do you set your organisation up for success with the right culture and the right matrix to track and nudge progress?

We’ll ask how these changemakers make decisions in a time of greater flux and unknowns, how they’ve built their careers, what defines success to them, how they empower their teams, and ultimately, how they drive holistic transformation.

Moderated by: Jamie Lee, Head of Financial Planning and Editorial, Endowus

Investing conversations: Our Net Worth

Climbing the career ladder also means thinking more holistically about your wealth goals through the years of accumulating income, so you can find freedom and peace of mind amid the harried pursuit in your professional endeavour. 

From building a career to setting ourselves up for financial success, how can we all be intentional in investing in ourselves so as to hit our life goals through the years? We’re pleased to bring together investment ideas and mentorship advice that can carry you through different life stages.
