Asian leaders enjoying the enriching session at Singapore Business Leaders Programme

Singapore Business Leaders Programme

Leadership from a Globalised Asia

The Singapore Business Leaders Programme (SBLP) is dedicated to deepening the understanding of leadership and human capital issues for a global-Asia. The region has now moved beyond the growth story stage to take on a more critical role in leading global processes and markets. This shift places greater urgency on forging new corporate leadership insights – For, and From Asia

Leveraging the Human Capital Leadership Institute’s open architecture, the SBLP is a platform to connect business leaders with an esteemed group of policy makers, industry champions, and thought leaders to forge new insights into personal and organisational pathways forward.  

This year’s theme is Intersections.

Programme Experience

The tenth anniversary edition of SBLP is an exclusive small-group gathering to refresh thinking while connecting with other seasoned leaders. It is about the intersections of ideas and actions that can yield value and bridge the intersections of today and tomorrow.

SBLP Connects People
Networking opportunities are built into the programme for the forging of strong ties and collaboration among the participants, and with the faculty.
Relationship building across industries and geographies will not end with the week. Participants will become part of an exclusive alumni network to continue their learning journey.
