She is one of Singapore’s noted social media influencers, inspiring a large following across various social media channels.

    Her bubbly and likable personality has made her a much sought after emcee and personality at major events. Years of experience hosting live events, a knack for thinking on her feet plus her ability to connect to the professionals, managers, executives and businessmen (PMEB) and youth make her an attractive proposition for corporate clients such as Singtel, Nokia, Estee Lauder, Casio and McDonald’s; and government agencies such as the Health Promotion Board (HPB) and the National Envionment agency (NEA).

    Seen as a tastemaker and influencer as well as a role model for young women, Jade has been picked to front numerous successful campaigns for reputable brands such as Nivea Visage, Clarins, Fisherman’s Friend, Ciba Vision, Puma and Topshop.

    Jade is also a strong online personality with an Instagram account of over 70, 000 followers, and a Twitter following of over 20, 000. She runs a YouTube channel called ‘Jade Seah OFFICIAL’ with style tips, chats with celebrity friends, snippets of her life and street interviews. Total views on her channel are over 3 million, and through her ability to connect with almost anyone, many of Jade’s street interviews in particular have gone viral with more than 200 000 views.

     All online activity is aggregated on her website, where Jade also blogs.

    Terence Lim

    A self-proclaimed expert disruptor of comfort zones, Terence first disrupted his comfort zone at the age of 17 when he left Singapore to pursue university life in the US on his own. His next big disruption came when he made the uncommon choice of walking away from a 10 year career as an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. During his time at Goldman, he had a couple of small disruptions, including unplanned stints in Hong Kong and New York.

    His most recent big disruption occurred last year when he decided to leave Temasek to join his mentor at the Kuok Group for an undefined role in the Executive Office. He is extremely passionate about personal growth and is always looking for new ways to be inspired.
