The Island Exchange

 

 

This is held in conjunction with the HSBC Women’s World Championship, but deserves an entry all on its own. This is simply because even if you aren’t into golf, you should still consider making the trip down just for these series of female empowerment workshops. Many distinguished women speakers from various industries in Singapore and other parts of the world. Some notable speakers include social media star, Mongchin Yeoh commonly known as @mongabong, TV host and UN Environmental Goodwill Ambassador Nadya Hutagalung; Rachel Lim, founder of Love Bonito; and many more! And of course there will be a variety of food and drinks to keep yourself fueled!

The initiative has been driven by the desire to create a platform to elevate female talent. By giving women a stage to thrive, The Island Exchange hopes to inspire the next generation of Singaporeans. It’s a chance for women to prove their worth and tell their stories, showing attendees the endless possibilities they have in life. We want to ignite a spark of optimism and excitement for what is to come and what is achievable.

The Island Exchange is a one-day event of transformative sessions which will empower you to thrive and define success on your own terms. With energising talks, great tunes, wholesome food, refreshing booze and even a yoga session in the mix, this is an event not to be missed!

The Island Exchange is free for tournament ticket holders with Saturday access and includes entry to the HSBC Women’s World Championship, a $15 food voucher plus a goodie bag and access to all six sessions on the day. A Saturday tournament ticket is priced at $29. Capacity for The Island Exchange is limited and registration will be on a first-come-first- serve basis. All attendees of The Island Exchange will also be entered into a lucky draw prize to win a four day, three night holiday for two at Club Med Bali worth $2,500 (terms and conditions apply).

There will be brands such as Frankskincare, oasis:skin, Want Skincare, Alcheme, The Sustainability Project and many more! Also, what’s unique about this event is also the fact that you can bring along your lightly-used beauty products to swap with others!
