The 1.5hr program is fun and invigorating! Guest Speaker Philip Leung is the founder of Small Talks Circles.  Phil has had a successful corporate life in Canada/Asia that spanned twenty years, rising to the top of 2 multinational companies in charge of China.  Leaving a cushy corporate life Phil set up his own consulting firm while also venturing into “angel investment” to focus on early-stage start-ups.  He has interesting stories to tell… an evening definitely not to be missed ! The highlight of the evening is the cocktail reception where you will be smooching and rubbing shoulders with STC “Anchors”!

Anchors are young professionals from different industries and sectors- company executives, entrepreneurs, researchers, recruiters, engineers, accountants, bankers, lawyers, architects, interior designers, educators, philanthropists, artists, musicians, photographers and indeed, folks from all walks of life! You will enjoy meeting and talking to them, likewise, they will be excited to meet you!

Things have taken a very interesting turn… We’re going to have 15-20 super anchors gracing STC on 22 January, all very young and super achieving !
