Singapore Tatler Unveiled Generation T List 2018—50 Young Game Changers And Achievers Shaping Singapore’s Future
[SINGAPORE – 10 May 2018, Thursday] Singapore Tatler unveiled the 50 individuals part of Generation T List 2018 with an extraordinary celebration at private members club 1880. This is the third list released in Singapore, as well as the third year of Asia Tatler’s regional Generation T initiative. Generation T, or Gen.T for short, is a list of 50 young achievers across various industries including entrepreneurs, creatives, and innovators who are shaping the future of Singapore. Says Corinne Ng, Managing Director of Edipresse Media Singapore, “Our Generation T List is a microcosm of the actual arsenal of talent needed to shape a city. We have individuals from a spectrum of industries—from finance to tech, to design, to music —who are quietly breaking boundaries. They are the ones making Singapore multi-dimensional, and we hope they can use Gen.T as a springboard to further success.”
“Launching the Generation T List is always exciting because we get to acknowledge the achievements of 50 extremely talented individuals and welcome them into our growing regional Gen.T community. We unveiled the 2018 list during a time when young people around the world are increasingly questioning and disrupting the status quo—it’s this determination to be a catalyst of change that you’ll also find in our Gen.T listers,” adds project editor Chong Seow Wei.
