20 February 2020


Following a careful risk assessment on the global Covid-19 outbreak situation and after much consideration, with utmost regret, the organising committee of "Fuelling the Aspiring Minds Forum" has made the difficult decision to POSTPONE the above forum to a later, yet to be confirmed date due to the unfortunate and unforeseen circumstances.

Our postponement decision anchors on two priorities:

  1. The health and safety of all involved; and
  2. Our commitment to delivering a top quality forum, which would be substantially compromised if we were to proceed with the forum as originally planned, in the absence of some overseas panellists who are unable to be present due to:
    • travel advisories from their employers / countries of residence or
    • mandatory lockdown of cities in their country of residence or
    • community spread of coronavirus in their countries of residence

We understand the above decision will cause much inconvenience to all who have wholeheartedly supported us in this forum and we are truly apologetic to all involved. Nevertheless, the organising committee believes that postponement of the forum to safeguard the health and well-being of all involved and the community at large is in the best interest of everyone.

We will notify in due course once the new date of the Forum is confirmed. For those who are unable to attend on the later confirmed date, a change in names of participants is permitted.

Once again, our sincere apologies for the postponement of the above forum. We appeal to your kind understanding and your continuous support for our Fuelling The Aspiring Minds Forum once a later date is confirmed.

Thank you.

On behalf of
Fuelling The Aspiring Minds Forum
