13th CEO Unplugged – The Way Ahead!

Hsieh Hu Fua, CEO of the Singapore Stock Exchange, and Owen Ow, CEO Yeo Hiap Seng (Malaysia) Bhd, were guest speakers at the 13th Edition of CEO Unplugged at the NUS Business School.

While revealing himself as a lazy person who never had a long-term plan for himself, he was being very frank and laid the connecting platform really well. He mentioned that his greatest fear would be letting down people. His experiences during the early days and the struggles he had gone through carried a strong message to the audience as did his firm note on ‘never-say-die’ attitude which he said is needed for any CEO.
