GALBOSS Asia: Empowering women to bring on their A-game

Singapore — Galboss Asia, a new collaborative movement in Asia for like-minded women entrepreneurs, business leaders and those aspiring to be, will be launching the first of its efforts with the introduction of the inaugural all-women Galboss Asia Symposium, to be held at Grand Hyatt Singapore on 21st of July 2016.

Founded by five leaders in their fields, Sabrina Tan, Andrea De Cruz, Melissa Lwee-Ramsay, Velda Tan, Tan Yen Yen, Galboss Asia was formed with the goal of celebrating, inspiring and supporting women in both their professional and personal lives, at all stages in their career trajectories. The five women, representing different backgrounds and fields, were bound by a common desire and conviction to enable, empower and elevate women in Asia, while creating a necessary space and dialogue to help them overcome business challenges and go from strength to strength.

The Galboss Asia Symposium will present sharp, engaging talks from a dynamic mix of four headliners: Aimee Song, Shannon Kalayanamitr, Tan Su Shan, and Sabrina Tan, as well as a strategic lineup of seven power panels geared towards women from all walks and stages of life. The panelists comprise over 20 female thought leaders in the digital and global business spheres, each bringing a wealth of experience from across sectors and industries.

Sabrina Tan, co-founder of Galboss Asia says, “Women have the potential to make profound changes in the business landscape. We see Galboss Asia as a catalyst; a movement that will rapidly accelerate growth in women-run businesses. Galboss Asia Symposium is the first of its kind in Asia. Through the sharing of inspirational stories and tactical insight, we want to form a collective of Asian women who will dare to take risks and pursue their dreams.”

The ‘A’ in Galboss is a tribute to Asia as well as all the attributes that make a Galboss: ambition, the desire to achieve, and a sense of adventure. By highlighting the accomplishments of women speaking at the symposium, Galboss Asia aims to help inspire women to bring on their A-game.
