Remote working is here to stay, whether it’s due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the desire of individuals to work from home or leaders providing workplace flexibility to employees. The benefits of working from home include increased productivity, improved work-life balance and time and cost savings. However, the disadvantages are that employees may feel socially alienated and personal and team bonding compromised due to physical distances and time differences. 


How do you build virtual teams that thrive and are able to connect and deliver? In our next session of “Viewpoints from FWA Champions”, we tap on the experiences of FWA Champions - Joris Dierckx, Head of Corporate & Institutional Banking, SEA and CEO, BNP Paribas Singapore, Young Jin Yee, Managing Director, Market Group Head for Singapore and Malaysia, Credit Suisse Private Banking, and Daphne Chan, CEO, Goldman Sachs Asset Management & Head of SEA Institutional Sales – to share with our members how they lead across space, borders and cultures to build effective teams. 


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