The Future Leaders Summit is NTUC’s annual flagship conference, being the choice converging point for forward-thinking leaders, distinguished practitioners and our PMEs. A platform for prime networking opportunities and professional enhancement, PME delegates can leverage on future workforce trends, progressive perspectives and prospects to establish new alliances across industries and sectors.

One of the key findings of the Global Talent Index Report 2015 by the Economist Intelligence Unit highlights a shortage of workers possessing critical soft skills such as creativity and versatility, as well as the ability to adapt and deal with evolving situations. This trend, identified across over 50% of the senior business executives surveyed in the Asia Pacific region, points to a critical skills gap in the workforce. To help Singapore bridge this gap, the NTUC’s Future Leaders Series features a variety of events and seminars, incorporating both technical and soft skills to aid Singaporean PMEs to develop the challenger mindset. These industry-specific, in-depth programmes are sectorially focused and profession-led.
