The French Chamber of Commerce Singapore is working with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) to help Singapore build a stronger culture of giving. There are many ways to give back to the community, to support it and show the care and kindness we have for our fellow Singaporeans.
You are invited to a session of ideas exchange. NVPC will share with you the current landscape and about Corporate Giving and Company of Good in order to drive the business community to give.
Ms Quek Shiyun, Deputy Director, NVPC on Company of Good, will first give some insight regarding the Giving status in Singapore.
Ms Winnie Tan, Head, Community Engagement & Sustainability, Standard Chartered Bank, will then share her experience as mentor for the Fellowship programme.
