Event Details

Many senior executives were already anxious and isolated before the COVID-19 physical distancing regulations kicked in. With companies now in crisis mode and many employees suffering, senior executives often have to carry this weight on their shoulders alone. Executive Loneliness is now a more critical topic than ever.

Nick Jonsson, Managing Director of EGN, one of the premiere professional networking organizations in Singapore, has dedicated time and effort to raise awareness on Executive Loneliness and eliminate the stigma around this phenomenon, and in this webinar, he will share his lessons-learnt on this important topic. During his work at EGN, Nick has identified that feelings of isolation and depression, personal struggles he himself had to grapple with and conquer, are much more widespread than we think. Modern work culture encourages executives to project success and achievement, while thousands are actually suffering in silence and denial.

EGN recently conducted a study which showed that 30% of senior executives have experienced depression and 82% of executives find it difficult to talk about stress and depression in their company. This is made worse by an "always-on" culture partly caused by digital transformation where people are constantly connected to their personal devices.
