Of French, Swiss and Filipino descent, Christine Amour-Levar is Social Entrepreneur, Marketing Consultant and Author who passionately believes in women empowering each other. She grew up between Manila, Paris and Tokyo and is currently based in Singapore, where she lives with her husband and four children. After graduating from Sophia University in Tokyo, with a BA in International Business and Economics, and a minor in Japanese language, she embarked on a fulfilling career that took her across Europe, Asia, North and South America for brands such as Nike, McCann-Erickson, Philippe Starck and her own Brazilian fashion retail business, Beijaflor. After selling her retail business in 2010, she went on to write the motivational guide, The Smart Girl’s Handbook to Being Mummylicious, published in May 2012. Today, Christine heads Marketing and Communications at Temasek Trust and Temasek Management Services, two wholly-owned subsidiaries of Temasek Holdings, a global investment firm headquartered in Singapore. She is also the Chief Marketing Officer of iRace Group, one of Asia's leading horse racing publishing and media companies and the Founding Partner of Women On A Mission, a non-profit organisation, which combines challenging expeditionary travel to remote locations around the world with the support of humanitarian causes.
