Professionals can get career advice from corporate leaders

Published on May 22, 2014 2:30 PM

SINGAPORE - Professionals here will soon get the chance to chat with the heads of Singapore and global firms and get career tips from them.

Singapore's labour movement started the sessions in response to members who said they wanted to hear from corporate leaders on how to progress in their careers.

These chats will be "informal and freewheeling", said National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) membership director Vivek Kumar at a press conference on Thursday. Groups of ten to 15 participants will meet the leaders over coffee and ask anything they like.

Four sessions have been planned from July until year end and 10 will be held next year. Already on board are NTUC Income chief executive Ken Ng as well as Mr Sandeep Suvarna, head of consumer marketing at social networking website LinkedIn.
