William Hooi is the founder of Singapore Makers, a community whitespace that advocates technology and innovation in Singapore through the makers movement.

William Hooi, Founder of Singapore Makers

He will take the stage amongst seven other speakers at Backstage Pass, Peatix‘s community event for organisers. In the lead up to Backstage Pass, William shares a little snippet into his thoughts on organising events from the ground-up in Singapore #HomeGrownSG.

The best part about organising events in Singapore is that while you’ll never know who will come, you always get to meet awesome people.

The thorn in our flesh when organising events is the availability of space but we nipped it in the bud through securing commitment from our venue sponsors months ahead.
