The Island Exchange Makes its Debut at HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore

New one day festival empowering attendees to thrive in their careers and beyond

Singapore, 8 February 2019 – The Island Exchange is an exciting new festival for the savvy and ambitious, debuting at Sentosa island on Saturday 2 March.


Held alongside the HSBC Women’s World Championship, The Island Exchange is a one-day event of transformative sessions, bringing together local and international speakers to share their tips and experiences on building a successful, meaningful career.


The exciting programme, set in the tropical surrounds of Sentosa Golf Club, includes energising talks, panels and workshops with founders and opinion leaders from various industries on topics including Instagram marketing and green business. Speaker highlights include TV host and UN Environmental Goodwill Ambassador Nadya Hutagalung, Rachel Lim, founder of Love Bonito, and many more.

Coupled with great music, wholesome food, refreshing drinks and even a morning yoga session with Under Armour ambassador Denise Keller, this is a new breed of festival not to be missed.


The Island Exchange’s mission is to empower attendees to thrive and define success on their own terms. A day of knowledge sharing and candid insights, it’s perfect for those who may feel uncertain about their career path, for aspiring entrepreneurs with a budding business idea or side hustle, or simply for those in need of a dose of inspiration.

Host for the panel segment “How They Did It: Leaders Laid Bare”, Class 95FM radio DJ Simone Heng, commented, “The Island Exchange is a new type of business forum that’s designed to inspire the next generation.”


“Attendees will hear from founders, trailblazers and changemakers who’ll share their career journeys and findings. From thought-provoking keynotes to hands-on workshops, you’ll take away juicy insights and valuable knowledge to empower you to thrive both professionally and personally.”

Stephanie Dickson, founder of Green Is The New Black, a guest panel host for the day added, “This fun yet purposeful event provides a platform to elevate talent who are experts in their field and are passionate about lifting up the next generation in business.”


“What’s really unique is that it’s more of a festival than forum and I’m really excited to be sharing my insights on living a greener lifestyle at The Island Exchange.”


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.
