Rebecca Siow
Vice-President, Research & Insights
Human Capital Leadership Institute

Rebecca is Vice-President, Research & Insights at the Human Capital Leadership Institute (HCLI). Since joining HCLI in November 2011, she has co-designed HCLI's flagship executive development programme, the Singapore Business Leaders Programme 2012, as well as its inaugural Asian Human Capital & Leadership Symposium 2014. As a key member of the Research & Insights team since 2012, she has steered joint research initiatives with partners including INSEAD, Deloitte Consulting, Gallup, and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), covering topics such as talent competitiveness of countries worldwide, Asia's talent challenges and strategies, leadership development strategies for Southeast Asia, and the future of talent in Singapore 2030. In addition, she took on the editor role for two issues of HCLI's leadership publication, HQ Asia: Surviving the VUCA world and Is your company future-proof?

Significantly in the last two years, Rebecca spearheaded HCLI's propriety leadership research, Leadership Mosaics Across Asia. Based on interviews with 165 senior business executives across nine Asian countries, this research describes the ways of leadership in each country and how leadership styles may need to evolve; suggests how emerging leaders of each country can become global leaders; and offers foreign leaders quick tips on engaging the local workforce. Rebecca is recognised as a thought leader in these topics, and has been invited to share her expertise in dozens of conferences, programme workshops, and other speaking platforms.

While continuously cultivating an interest in Asian cultures and leadership, Rebecca is now fascinated with the phenomenon of populism. Her current research is on the appropriate responses of business leaders in such a season, and the solutions they can co-create with their stakeholders.

Prior to her time with HCLI, Rebecca was at Deutsche Bank, Asia Pacific where she engaged in numerous change management projects for its Finance division. She was also with the Singapore Economic Development Board, specifically looking at the development of new industry frontiers such as performing arts and music in Singapore.

Rebecca graduated summa cum laude from the Singapore Management University with Bachelor of Business Management and Bachelor of Accountancy degrees in 2006. She also holds a Master of Arts in Management & Organisational Analysis (with Distinction) from Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, UK.
