The Hub is an initiative driven by our heart and passion to see the working adults develop personally and professionally by inviting subject matter experts to share their knowledge and experience. This initiative intends to provide for the ideal avenue for working adults and similar groups to invite friends by hosting professional development events. There are also refreshments and networking time at the end of each event to allow for the opportunity to build professional and social contacts.

Under the direction of Joan Foo, The Hub committee members Antonius Silaen, Eva Silaen, Michelle Lee, Patrick Nguyen and Fatima Lay have all been instrumental in delivering three successful events to date for The Hub this year. It has been such a privilege to have highly esteemed guest speakers delivered both excellent and relevant topics to our target audience. We would like to thank and honour each of the following:
1. Kody Thompson, Founder of WodSites, Making Your Dream a Reality
2. Sue Schoonbeek, Nurse Manager, Winning with People
3. Tony Lee, Founder and CEO of Lee and Lee Group, Financial Wisdom: from Ordinary to Abundance

For each Hub event, we were pleased to host approximately 90 to 100 attendees. The feedback we have received from attendees has indicated that the events have been interesting, informative and interactive. We would like to sincerely thank all the volunteers who assisted with video recording, photographing, graphic designs, emceeing and for everyone’s donations and support with this new venture. We are thankful for what The Hub has achieved to date and are excited about what is to come with The Hub in the coming year with your continued support.
