Dear Guest Speaker,
We are honoured to have you as a guest speaker as part of our 2018 Change School TV (CSTV) channel by Change Ventures Pte Ltd - a series of weekly LIVE and recorded videos aimed at sharing valuable content, inspirational stories and expert insights for embracing change, navigating career change/transition, and thriving in Life+Work.
Hosted by Grace + Solonia, CSTV aims to give viewers a positive start to the work week (Mondays at 830pm GMT+8), with a motivational dose of #mondaymojo for career success and reinvention. Each episode addresses a key career change topic under the following themes or categories:
Mindset - How do people who've made successful career changes think or do things differently? What are the most common career risks, challenges, or barriers we face today, and how can we reframe our thinking and make paradigm shifts in order to achieve our greatest potential.
What's Changing - Featured conversations with career experts to address current and emerging trends in the world of work, and how this is shaping today's employment opportunities, organisational change, and essential skills for the future.
How To... - Tutorials, strategies, tools and tips shared by Grace + Solonia for navigating today's career landscape, finding meaningful work, and building a fulfilling career.
Humans Of Change - Inspiring stories of transformation, from our alumni and wider community, to share their personal journeys and key lessons from career change, transition and reinvention.
Guest speakers are invited to share their personal stories and insights on career change as part of our Humans Of Change series - aired LIVE on our Facebook Page and made available for re-plays on our Youtube channel.

- Turn off or silence any devices with audible sound.
- We suggest using a headset or mic for better audio quality.
- Shut down all other programs or wireless connections that eat up bandwidth.
- Important! Ensure spot has strong, stable wireless signal and fast connection speed.
During Our Conversation
- We’ll first do an initial sound and quality check.
- We’ll briefly go over the interview questions that will be shared with you in advance.
- We’ll do our best to keep the conversation fluid to meet our target 30-40 min episode length.
- Just be yourself and allow yourself to be vulnerable as this is what really resonates with our viewers!
