Thought Leaders Series

What is the Thought Leaders Series?

The Thought Leaders Series (TLS) is a biennial signature event hosted by SSB. Since its inauguration, SSB has had the great honour of inviting international key opinion leaders to educate the Singapore community on the latest industry insights and market trends in medical technology development. Through an “in-conversation’ styled forum, the distinguished speakers illuminate international perspectives on the challenges and future of the medical technology industry.

SSB aspires to continue bringing in such luminaries to this forum.
