Changing your career path can be nerve-wracking, trying and challenging. Amidst these unprecedented times, we have been fielding frequent queries about how professionals can pivot and potentially change their career path; sometimes out of necessity, and often out of a strong interest in a different area of work.

Ansa Search has invited three esteemed speakers – Adriel Loh, Global Head of Compliance (Bank of Singapore)Mukta Arya, Head of HR SEA (Societe Generale) and Avalyn Lim, Executive Coach – to share their experiences. They will be joined by our Co-founder Helen Ng, drawing on her extensive experience as a recruiter who has placed legal and compliance professionals into various roles. The session will be moderated by Shulin Lee, Co-founder, Ansa Search.

Some of the discussion points you can look forward to:
