Message from the Executive Director
Dear Members ,
A very warm welcome-back to all of you who managed to travel over the summer period and have come back to Singapore . It really is pleasing to see travel starting to get back to a nearnormal pace .
The last few months have been busy for the Chamber as you would expect , and I am pleased to announce that , on average , we have been welcoming two new member companies to our network every week since May . We will be reaching out to members to come and meet with myself and the team in the coming months .
We are approaching a really exciting time of the year with our Annual Business Awards , the longest running awards programme delivered by an international Chamber , and plenty of major events in the calendar .

This month , the Chamber welcomed Ashni Degamia as our Head of Events . Ashni brings with her a wealth of experience to drive the future of our events and we are delighted to welcome her to the team .
Finally , I would like to say a huge ‘ thank you ’ to Helen Starr ( Head of Events ) and Melissa Ng ( Membership Executive ) who have left the Chamber team after over four and three years respectively . Both leave us with our very best wishes for their next stages of their careers , having made an enormous impact , and we look forward to seeing them again at future events .
I look forward to seeing you soon , My best ,
