The great thing about a career is, it builds. The slate doesn't wipe clean with each move, it just gets richer and more detailed. So, the idea of change should never stop you: it should actually drive you on.

  • We all want a great career but how can we galvanise it, using the knowledge we've acquired whilst still striving for more?
  • What are the key trends/issues/opportunities the IR industry is facing today, and whos winning in the war for talent in this space?
  • How is the region developing, and what should IROs be thinking about now, to further advance their careers?
  • Beyond IR; the path from IRO to CEO/NED/CFO whos doing it and hows it being done?
  • How the rise in interest in Sustainability is changing the landscape of IR in Asia.

We are delighted to welcome Katrina Andrews, Managing Partner of Andrews Partnership, an Executive Search firm which specialises in Investor Relations and Corporate Affairs placements across Asia. She will provide valuable insights and advice for IROs who are interested in furthering their career both in the IR space and also into business leadership positions.

This event is complimentary for IRPAS Members and only S$30 for non-members. Register early to secure your place!
