7:00 pm - Tech And Re-imagining Food In Our Everyday Lives

Overview: At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders from a specific industry — such as finance, food, or art — to explore new intersections between their field and technology. Together, we discuss how they’ve been impacted by the rise of tech, ways they’ve adapted and innovated along the way, and what they expect to see in the future.

What You’ll Take Away: Gain insight and inspiration from experts in specific fields and hear first-hand how technology is transforming their work. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.

Featured Experts: Leaders in the energy sector will break down the biggest challenges and opportunities they face with the rise of new technology, and explain how their teams adapt to the fast pace of innovation.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.


  • Check-in & Networking 6:30 – 7:00 pm
  • Panel/Lighting Talks 7:00 – 7:45 pm
  • Q&A and Networking 7:45 – 8:15 pm

Elika Mather
Owner, Kitchen by Food Rebel, Health Coach

Elika became a health coach following frustration of years of yo yo dieting & lack of nutritional support available from personal trainers she had used. Her own health had deteriorated as a result of working long hours for nearly 10 years in the corporate HR consultancy industry and she was looking for her own answers to her health issues.

Having personally healed herself of Insomnia, sugar cravings, lack of energy, food intolerances, adrenal fatigue, chronic stress, PCOS and imbalanced hormones, these became some of the common areas she supported her clients with through ElikaFit. In addition after losing herself 3 kgs from reducing body fat, whilst increasing muscle mass she also supports their weight management goals.

As a Health Coach she works with individuals & companies and provides the truth about nutrition enabling healthier lifestyles through coaching, consulting & access to exciting healthy food.
Having worked nearly 4 years in the Raffles place area Elika was extremely frustrated with the lack of healthy food options that provided ‘real food’ that wasn’t highly processed & with quality ingredients that had no hidden sugars & preservatives. When her clients started to voice similar concerns from her recommendations of what types of foods to eat, she saw a need for a CBD cafe.

As the owner of Kitchen by Food Rebel and a certified Raw Food Chef, the cafes mission is to improve their customers health through a recipe of awareness, education & great food. Elika provides education workshops & cooking classes onsite and works with a number of local start‐up and suppliers to source quality fresh ingredients that can be used in house to make fresh meals daily. At Kitchen the menu consists of a range of fresh food with in house made dressings, sandwiches with quality bread flown from Austria, hot fusion warm meals & a range of desserts that are gluten, dairy, refined sugar free. The cafe is inclusive so welcomes vegans, vegetarians, athletes, clean meat lovers & those with food intolerances. Whether the customer is a new to healthy eating lifestyles or an avid organic food purchaser the cafe caters to them through their level 1,2 & 3 concept, which is illustrated on the walls of the cafe . In the cafe you will find a strict ban on refined sugar, preservatives & chemicals used in cooking all the foods that are made from scratch using only traditional cooking techniques.

Darren Ho
Project Lead, Citizen Farm

As a Natural Resource Management & Economics graduate from Australia. Darren has a deep interest in all things related to food and community. He is drawn to the idea of making the global food production more sustainable with the principles of circular economy across the entire food chain (from production, logistics, manufacturing and processing, up to the plate on the table).

He has worked in and managed farms in Australia and Singapore and would like to continue to do so all around the world, understanding different practices, climates and cultures. This helps him shape his farming philosophy and allows him to cross-pollinate ideas with different farmers.

In his current role as the Head of Citizen Farm, he aims to transform the agriculture sector into a more decentralised model, especially in developing cities where infrastructure is not too set in stone. He believes that urban agriculture is the solution to the growing demands of mega cities and more efforts have to be channelled in that direction to make it sustainable.

Darren is equally passionate about driving the industry forward and in his role as the Project Lead for the Singapore Young Farmers, he organises symposiums to attract younger generations into the agriculture industry. He hopes that one day Singapore becomes a more food resilient country and is recognised as the regional knowledge hub for agriculture.
