Board Event, Leadership Event the People at Work
The People at Work will be holding its “Boards Really Talking” closed-door session entitled: “Avoiding common pitfalls as a Director“. This by-invitation-only session will be led by Prof Mak Yuen Teen, who was the founder and Director of the first corporate governance center in Singapore at the National University of Singapore.

Prof Mak has served on key corporate governance committees in Singapore developing and revising codes of Corporate Governance for listed companies and not for profit organizations. He is an active and passionate commentator, speaker, advocate, and author and is a much sought-after speaker and trainer in this region for his sharp insights, firsthand exposure in behind-the-scenes corporate tangles and straight talk!

He will highlight key issues, insights and share lessons based on real-life examples from corporate governance scandals and board failures. Please join us for a lively evening of closed door discussion and sharing!
