Dear Members,

This year marks a special milestone for the Singapore Business Council. I am extremely honored and privileged to be your first female President since the Council was formed in 1999.  I am also grateful to be a part of an incredible team of professionals this year.

The executive committee of Singapore Business Council is working with a renewed focus on the Council’s underlying theme of Engage, Enrich and Enable for our members.

With a strong commitment to our Mission and Vision, the Singapore Business Council hope to provide a platform to enhance members’ business development, as well as personal development. The new Executive Committee comes from different walks of life, with a diverse skills set which will bring fresh and new ideas to the table.

Over the next 12 months, we are looking forward to an array of exciting events. We are confident that we will provide our members with an arena to expand networking opportunities not only through the ASEAN Business Council Alliance events but also through the Inter Business Council events with other business councils such as the Australian Business Council, the Canadian Business Council and the Turkish Business Council to expand members’ networking reach. The Council will continue to forge partnerships between the different business communities (i.e. EXPO 2020), which will enable our members to explore new trade and business opportunities.

The Council will continue to organize our signature events such as the “Knowledge Series” events (in the form of seminars, forums and panel discussions) where we will discuss state of art topics to keep all our members abreast with new developments and innovations in the business world. This year we will also be introducing a new initiative called “Discovery Series” events where topics surrounding lifestyle and wellbeing will be explored. We believe that continued pursuit of knowledge is key to the sustainable growth of our members, both professionally and personally.

Last but not least, the Executive Committee represents the voice of our members throughout our community. We want you to get involved this year. We need you to be involved this year! Please reach out to any of our Executive Committee members, or me directly at to learn how to get the most out of Singapore Business Council in 2018/19.

Thank you all, for your continued support and being an integral part of the Singapore Business Council. We are looking forward to another great and successful year ahead!


Yours sincerely,

Tiruselvi Krishnan-Kelly

President 2018
