Did you know that 72% of entrepreneurs are directly or indirectly affected by mental health issues compared to just 48% of non-entrepreneurs? For Mental Health Awareness Month, we are asking three well-being experts and entrepreneurs – Louisa Lee, CEO, DP Healthverse Holdings; Prionka Ray, Pyschotherapist & Well-Being Consultant; and Tani De Gregorio, Holistic Health Coach & Certified Hypnotherapist – to share their valuable insights and practical strategies for achieving success while also prioritising your mental health.
Organised in partnership with Seasoned Singapore Expat Women (SSEW), we’ll explore the importance of defining one’s own definition of success. You’ll learn hacks on overcoming challenges and daily routines to get ahead of the day. We’ll also discuss grit, resilience, the importance of knowing when to push and when to let go, and how to navigate through obstacles while staying grounded and keeping it cool. This session is going to be jam-packed with helpful tools and techniques to help you find your path to success – both professionally and personally.
But what’s an Ask Party you say? At Launchpad’s signature Ask Party, we welcome members to network while wearing their ask, literally on their sleeve, thus inviting insights, advice and maybe even solutions! Through being more vulnerable, stepping out of your comfort zone, and having genuine and real conversations about things you need – making this not just another networking event, but a night where you receive real help from peers, mentors and other entrepreneurs who have walked in your shoes.
Don’t miss this evening of connection, inspiration and learning – drinks and nibbles included!

After working in the corporate world and as a freelance content creator for over 10 years, Tani changed careers in 2019 and offers today online hypno-coaching sessions where she combines hypnotherapy with impactful health and stress coaching tools.
In the past, she often pushed herself to her limits, both physically and mentally, and ignored many of the messages her body was trying to give her (panic attacks, eating disorders, digestive and sleeping problems etc.) before she had a wake-up call when her mum passed away due to cancer.
Today, Tani works with both the conscious and subconscious mind to empower women from all over the world to make powerful changes in the following areas:
• Stress management
• Eating habits (sugar cravings, more mindful eating etc.)
• Exercise motivation
