30 Singapore Brand Leaders

Building a brand requires a mix of charismatic leadership, foresight, tenacity and strong communication skills. These are the same qualities that took Singapore from 3rd world to its present day affluence. Featuring Singaporean Top Brands, this 2nd book is a tribute to Singapore’s coming of age on her 50th birthday.
Entitled “30 Singapore Brand Leaders”, the 200 page, full colour and hard cover book compiles historical records, photographs and first-hand interviews with founders and leaders of up to 30 Singapore’s most influential companies.
These company founders and CEOs held onto their beliefs. They did not give up and some had to bounce back from bankruptcy. They had the tenacity to persevere, and eventually make a success from humble beginnings.
The book serves as a source of inspiration for young and would-be entrepreneurs.
