Singapore, 1st April 2018 (Sunday)
In 2018, The Busy Woman Project set its intentions to raise awareness on building resilience; wiñth a focus on overall wellbeing. Why do some people face challenges head on and not buckle? Resilient people have been theorised to possess three characteristics: a firm acceptance of reality; a deep belief that life is meaningful, and exceptional improvisation skills.
The event is conceptualized upon this premise and in-line with 1Q18's theme: Living a Purposeful Life.

About The Busy Woman Project:
The Busy Woman Project exists to build resilience in busy women across Asia - empowering them to be healthier mentally, physically, emotionally and to lead more fulfilled lives.
Since the launch of the platform in October 2016, The Busy Woman Project has held SOLD OUT events in Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
About Clare Lim & Aaron Martin:
Aaron & Clare are the founders of SharedSpace, a movement studio and community, for both movement practitioners and professionals. They also love brand building, and watching other small businesses growing alongside theirs.
They are excited to be growing a friendship with the The Busy Woman Project, because they believe in the The Busy Woman Project's vision and love connecting with like-minded, women hustlers!
About Dinesh Balasingam:
Dinesh, 29, is the Chief Operating Officer of Chope - Asia's largest restaurant reservation platform and head of its Singapore office.
The epitome of the path less travelled, the then 22-year old Dinesh Balasingam joined Chope as its 3rd founding member instead of heading to New York University to pursue further studies in 2011.
This was no easy feat, and the result of Dinesh being the lynchpin in Chope's 6-year growth into one of the region's most recognizable home-grown internet brands with 9 offices, 150 professionals, and 3,000 clients.
Despite his youth, many of Asia's largest F&B companies now turn to Dinesh for advice on strategic, technology or marketing matters, and he is without doubt one of the most prominent names in Singapore's dining hospitality community. He is often approached to
share his experiences at various seminars and technology industry events alongside peers from Uber, Spotify and Netflix.
As Chope's COO, he now oversees operational matters for the tech company which has received investments from the likes of Singapore Press Holdings and Alibaba's ex-CTO John Wu. Colleagues will attest that he's often the first person in, and last one out the door
well after midnight, and despite running a team managing thousands of restaurants knows the intimate details and backstories of almost all of them. Perhaps most telling is the respect that Chope's more senior executives and board members accord to Dinesh, knowing that
few 20-somethings have accomplished so much from so little, so fast.
