September 10, 2018, Singapore
"I have seen Break the ceiling, touch the sky conference go from strength to strength every year. This year’s conference was the best yet, bringing together great participation from CEO’s, C-Suite executives, Diversity & Inclusion practitioners and founders/heads of businesses.

Anthony’s BTCTTS summit is really mobilizing a movement for building more gender balanced workplaces. It has something for everyone – CEO’s to learn from one another on how to drive change and progress towards gender diversity. Women who are looking for advise on how to take their careers forward and Men who want to be champions of change."
