The Changing Faces programme is back!
I had the chance to be selected and given the scholarship to attend this women’s leadership programme in July 2019 and it was life-changing!
Thanks to this programme, I launched my Womenpreneur Asia podcast which is now in its 4th season with 45 episodes to boot. And to think back in July 2019, I was scratching my head trying to figure out how to get the podcast launched!
If there are pivotal moments in my life, this programme is one of them. (I did a presentation and talk when I came back. Here are the slides from that session.)
I met amazing women from the rest of Asia Pacific whom I still keep in touch with. And one of the best things is that I get to meet other women who have taken the programme. We are now alumnae of this leadership programme and share a kinship even if we haven’t met each other. The network is incredibly diverse and when you take part in this, you are plugged into an ecosystem of knowledgeable women across the Asia Pacific and beyond.
In fact, I recently interviewed a Mongolian woman for my podcast who is my “senior” from this programme – she had been part of this programme a few years before me. In the Hawaiian term, we are “ohana” or family!
I blogged about my experiences in Hawaii and they are unforgettable.
If you want a quick version, here’s a summary video of what we did in those 2 memorable weeks on the islands of Oahu and Maui.
Can you spot me in the video below?
This year, the programme is open again for applications and if you do get into the programme, you will experience the magic that is Hawaii.
It is only for women though so read the application criteria carefully and may your body of work, experience and knowledge get you into this programme.
