Inspiring bolder marketing leadership in the APAC region

Having been the UK's most influential network of senior marketers since 1959 in 2014 we set our sights further afield and set up fabulous new hubs in Hong Kong and Singapore. We have since expanded succesfully into Dubai, India and New York.

Our mission has always been to inspire bolder marketing leadership and through our 7 global hubs the aim is to become the place for discerning senior marketers to learn, develop and share best practice through our global network.

With a programme of exclusive, world-class events, including our industry-leading Brave Awards, prestigious Marketing Leaders Programme and our online Clubhouse - we aim to inspire and challenge wherever we go.


What a wonderful year it's been for The Marketing Society Singapore. Thank you for being part of this formidable (and fun) network of peers; I am delighted to say that our membership now exceeds 75 of the most senior marketers from SEA.

Our brave agenda, inspiring our network to be bolder and braver leaders, has resonated with our members all across the world - but we've still got some way to go, particularly here in Singapore. 

Our exciting 2019 calendar of events means that there are so many opportunities just around the corner for you to step out of your comfort zone, to push boundaries, and to begin to have uncomfortable but vital conversations. - Erica Kerna, South East Asia Chair​


Vanessa Cardigan is our new Hong Kong Hub Manager. She started her career at Estee Lauder, before moving to L’Oréal where she worked for seven years both in London and most recently in Hong Kong.
