Global health crises often trigger anxieties and heightened concern for mental wellbeing. The COVID-19 crisis has led to the adoption of stringent containment measures around the world and has required significant changes in social behaviour– including the adoption of social distancing measures.
As the crisis continues to evolve globally, it is essential to develop coping mechanisms that guard against growing feelings of isolation and uncertainty. Covering a variety of contexts and coping mechanisms, EuroCham’s 17 August sharing session on Healthy Lifestyle and Wellbeing discusses the unique (and often unaddressed) challenges posed by the present pandemic, with special reference to preventing executive loneliness.

6:30 pm Wrap-up and End of programme
As the Founder & Managing Director with EGN (Executives’ Global Network) Singapore, Nick is passionate about matching senior executives in confidential peer groups where they can help each other face challenges and identify opportunities.
Nick has dedicated time and effort to raise awareness on Executive Loneliness and eliminate the stigma around this phenomenon. 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.

Dr Munidasa Winslow specialises in addiction and impulse control disorders such as alcohol, substance dependence, gambling, gaming and sexual compulsivity, and more.
His career began at the Institute of Mental Health, where he worked in general psychiatry and addiction medicine since 1988. His dedication to addiction medicine and commitment to the community culminated in the setting up of the National Addictions Management Service (NAMS), where he played a pioneering role. Before leaving public service to found his private practice, Promises Pte Ltd, he was chief of the Addiction Medicine Department at IMH.
Dr Winslow is a pioneer in addiction and impulse control disorders in the Asia-Pacific region as well as a figure of international renown in his field, making him a sought after speaker wherever and whenever addiction conferences are held. Whether it be speaking with a patient or addressing an audience, he burnishes his experience and intellect with a down-to-earth jocularity – inspiring confidence in his ability whilst making one feel at ease in his presence.
On top of being a fully qualified psychiatrist, Dr Winslow puts in the time and effort to maintain and further his therapy and counselling skills. Published widely in the fields of general psychology and addiction issues, he continues his academic and research interests through his academic appointments at NUHS. He also teaches many counselling courses, where he draws upon his extensive experience to empower therapists to develop and hone their craft – which for Dr Winslow, is a fierce passion.

In 2019, Sari was selected as finalist for the Shape Fit Girl by Shape Magazine. When she is not coaching or training, Sari contributes to her community via volunteering to work with youths with learning difficulties as a fitness dance coach, in a local vocational school and Aidha, a non-profit organisation that provides education and entrepreneurial skills for foreign domestic workers.
Sari uses a wide range of training methods that combine physical, mental and emotional states in order to produce powerful and sustainable results. In addition to improved performance, her clients report a shift in the way they see the world and the way they hold their body, often resulting in increased ‘executive presence’ and authenticity. Her approach is purpose-driven, holistic and dynamic.
Her passion for fitness and leadership led her to co-author the ground-breaking book, “FIT TO LEAD”, with her husband (who is himself a certified executive coach and leadership facilitator). The book combines the principles of executive coaching, movement, nutrition and fitness training to provide the reader with a holistic system for transforming their leadership and producing breakthrough results not only for themselves, but also for the people they lead.
