Oxbridge Annual Dinner at the British High Commission

Description
Oxbridge Annual Dinner at the British High Commission

The Oxford and Cambridge Society of Singapore Annual Dinner will be held on Saturday the 20th of February 2016, at Eden Hall, the Official Residence of the His Excellency, the British High Commissioner to Singapore. In keeping with the Season, this year’s dinner will be a traditional Chinese New Year reunion of the alumni and guests from both places.

The highlight of the evening will be the Speeches, first from the President, Mr Michael Hwang SC, followed by the traditional witty riposte by one representative from each University. This year's representatives are Ms Tan Su Shan, Head of Consumer Banking at DBS who will speak on behalf of Oxford University. Her worthy opponent from Cambridge will be Mr Dennis Goh, founder of Singapore’s leading social media food site HungryGoWhere. Together with the President, they will dazzle with the wit, humour, eloquence, and goodsense for which our Universities are known. The winner will be decided by voting.
