The best part about organising events in Singapore is that there are so many energetic and enthusiastic people willing to help out. Throughout the years I have met a lot of great people and I am amazed at the amount of time people are investing in their events, without any financial gain.
The thorn in our flesh when organising events is finding great free/sponsored venues but we nip it in the bud by building relationships with venue owners, and ensuring there is a win for them as well. We are looking at signing an agreement with one long term venue partner which would allow us to focus more on speakers and content
Giving opportunities to local talents to show their craft/ideas/thoughts to the rest of the world is #HomeGrownSG to me!
