About the Book

Madonnas and Mavericks is a tribute to outstanding Singaporean women who have scaled the peaks and thrived in unexpected places.  

The seventeen women in this book are leaders from diverse fields: business, politics, advocacy, sports, lifestyle and the arts. Known for their strong spheres of influence, some may frequently be in the limelight but others are elusive, preferring their actions to speak louder. Regardless, these women have all contributed to Singapore‚Äôs spectacular growth. 

Over the course of their interviews with Loretta Chen, the women share intimate stories, career insights and life lessons, along with much laughter and some tears. We are accorded a rare glimpse into their struggles to push boundaries and break glass ceilings, while maintaining a delicate balance between a demanding career and a fulfilling home. These stories of lives well lived are a treat and an inspiration to women, and men, who seek to excel and master their own destinies.
