One of the most ardent supporters of the SIF’s Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) programme, Andy Holley has played the roles of both guest speaker and mentor since 2013. Even as Chief Operating Officer of Digital McKinsey Asia, Andy remains active in the Lead Mentorship programme, and has lifted YSE's profile to the business community in Singapore and beyond.
Today, the SIF’s YSE programme is supported by over 100 institutional partners across nine global cities, with a growing community of 780 young social entrepreneurs representing 27 nationalities, with successful social enterprises in 13 countries.
Christopher Davies has been the SIF’s representative in the United Kingdom (UK) since 2013. A strong advocate of collaborations, he has also helped facilitated partnership opportunities for the SIF with UK institutions. Christopher was a valued panellist on the SIF Connects! London 2016 dialogue session and he also contributed to the SIF’s publication “Singapore: Insights from the Inside”, a collection of Singapore stories from members of the international community who have lived or are living here.
Mochammad Nunung Kurniawan (Iwan)
As the SIF’s longest serving overseas representative since 2012, Mochammad Nunung Kurniawan (Iwan) plays an essential role in enabling collaborations between the SIF, the SIF-ASEAN Indonesian Fellows, and the Indonesia Bright Foundation (IBF). Founded by 135 SIF-ASEAN Indonesian Fellows, the IBF supports bright but financially-challenged Indonesian students and helps them achieve their academic potential through education sponsorship. Iwan has been instrumental in driving IBF’s impactful initiatives such as study trips and has also supported all the SIF Connects! events in Indonesia.
Taweesak Kritjaroen (P’Tao)
Since participating in the SIF-ASEAN Student Fellowship programme in 2000, Taweesak Kritjaroen (P’Tao) has actively promoted Singapore as the go-to destination for study visits. During SIF Connects! Singapore in 2013 and 2015, the university lecturer organised study trips for groups of postgraduate students from King Mongkut's University of Technology Thonburi – they were so well received that the study visit has since been institutionalised.
