By Sean Tan        1 December 2020

On the top of everyone’s mind during this COVID-19 pandemic is especially the concern over one’s own career stability and the future it holds. In addition to the support which the government has given to level up the job prospects of Singaporeans, there are also many upskilling support means which are available to all. This is all part of the Economic Defence pillar which is about strengthening the competitiveness and attractiveness of Singapore’s economy so that we are special and relevant to the world, and to keep it strong and resilient to overcome any challenge or crisis.

To support Economic Defence, and as part of the Be@SAFRA Total Defence-themed activities that are held in December, SAFRA has organised webinars to help you put Economic Defence into action while learning ways to improve your own skill sets. Called the Executive Learning Series Webinars, this series of talks will be conducted by professionals and experts in each of their respective fields. Come take part and walk away with some valuable tips to transform your own career.
