Former Miss Singapore extends her expertise to ASSEMBLY!

Audrey Quek, Miss Singapore 1999, image consultant, trainer, brand ambassador, happens to also be a honors graduate in Real Estate. Singapore's transportation systems, housing, industrial policy and many features of the urban landscape were part of the curriculum at the National University of Singapore. In her public events and professional work, the in-depth knowledge of how Singapore developed certainly were a plus factor.

Audrey Quek is a keen advocate of Singapore's urban development to youths who would like to study how Singapore became the world's busiest port, secured its own water supplies, attracted top companies to be based here. Singapore is a very liveable city state, a former Miss Singapore would certainly flash a smile to that!

Competition gets another nod from The Centre for Liveable Cities, Singapore

The Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) is jointly established by The Ministry of National Development (MND) and the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources to enhance Singapore's expertise in urban development and management. The role of  CLC  is one of a knowledge centre and bringing together expertise among the public, private and people sectors in city development and management. It hopes to position itself as a centre of global excellence that brings together the best ideas and practices that support efforts in building liveable cities that are dynamic, vibrant, cohesive and sustainable.

The endorsement received from CLC to this competition is very critical because it means that we're serious in our business of raising awareness among today's youth. The recognition also opens up avenues for our young participants to be involved with sustainability issues on an international platform. Together we hope to effect a greater sense of what it means to live in liveable, green, sustainable cities and to share this timeless ethos with the youth.
