The road to success for leaders is seldom predetermined, and whilst some may have been “born leaders”, in most cases, the path to success is varied, often marked by failures and obstacles along the way. For many, that’s what defines their leadership styles and drives them.


We ask three FWA Champions, Rahul Malhotra, Wong Chien Chien and Ivy Yong, to share their experiences as leaders, learning points, failures and successes, what works/what doesn’t, what they could have done better, and areas of improvement in leadership management. This session is moderated by our much-loved moderator, Jennifer Lewis. 

Please join us in another "Viewpoints from FWA Champions" series. We look forward to seeing you on zoom!


Registration starts at 12.15 pm. Registrants will be provided with a zoom link for the event closer to date.
