About this event

Singapore is facing an ageing population, and it is estimated that one in four Singaporeans will be aged 65 and above by 2030. In anticipation of this, organisations like banks have been adjusting their services to better meet the needs of the community. 

Not only are banks collaborating with the public sector to promote active ageing, they also work to improve their standing as a dementia-friendly organisation in Singapore. Hear from our speakers as they share about the efforts put in by the banks in Singapore to support the diverse needs of the community. 

  • Presented by: Mr Bob Ng, Senior Vice President, Head of Personal and Premier Banking Onshore, Consumer Financial Services Singapore, OCBC Bank (Singapore) & Ms Yeo Wenxian, Head of POSB and Head of Retail Customer Segment, Consumer Banking Group Singapore, DBS Bank (Singapore).
  • Moderated by: Ms Sufei Lin, Deputy Director, Company of Good, National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (Singapore).

About Time of Your Life Celebration 2022

Connections: Past, Present and Future

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being.

Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
