CMOs kickstart their Journey to Board Directorship at QED’s pilot session

35 Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) joined us at our inaugural Journey to Board Directorship session on 20 Sep 2022, where we uncovered what it takes to land a role in the boardroom. Held behind closed doors under the Chatham House Rule, the CMOs had the opportunity to connect with established Board Directors and hear first-hand from them on their personal board journeys and advice for aspiring board members.

Our deepest appreciation goes to our keynote speaker, Philip Forrest AM, Independent Director and Chair of the Audit Committee, 8VI Holdings Limited and Council Member, Singapore Institute of Directors, whose insightful sharing shed light on the roles of responsibilities of the board.

And also to the CEOs & Board Directors who placed themselves in the roundtable hot seats for the CMOs to ask their burning questions:

  • Bill Chua, Independent Director and Chairman of Board Risk Committee, Citibank Singapore and Sunseap Group

  • Carmen Wee, Board Member, Home Team Science and Technology Agency (HTX)

  • Audrey Kuah, Board Member, Singapore Tourism Board and Head, Group Marketing Global Consumer Financial Services, OCBC Group

  • Clara Cheo, Chief Executive Officer, Golden Village

  • Felix Loh, Chief Executive Officer, Gardens by the Bay

  • Francis Looi, Chief Executive Officer, Polar Puffs & Cakes

We’d also like to thank our Patrons – Acorn Asia, Havas Group, Mediacorp, Redhill, and SPH Media – for championing the personal careers of our attending CMOs and for sponsoring this session.

In the spirit of forging new business connections, OneGoodTeam also sponsored sustainable smart business cards for all attending Board Directors and CMOs.

A CMO’s Journey to Board Directorship Handbook will be ready soon. If you’d like a copy or would like to join us for the next Journey to Board Directorship session, drop us an email at indicating your name, organisation and designation!
