Agnes Liew is an ex-banker, entrepreneur, and studio owner. She spent 35 years with Citigroup, where she was last head of its Asia Pacific corporate bank and based in Singapore.

She wants to share her vision of becoming fit and fitter no matter your age or stage in life, and especially to empower women to age healthily and gracefully.
