Marbles, Mayhem & My Typewriter
- About the Author
In a world where so many people believe that they cannot go far because they were not born gifted or with a silver spoon, Mano Sabnani's story provides profound inspiration – showing how an ordinary man can achieve extraordinary things by following a very simple and ethical set of principles. As a top journalist, banker and activist investor as well as intrepid traveller, Mano offers over six decades of unique experience and special insight into a myriad of topics and life itself. This humble man has also enjoyed a front-row seat to the transformation of Singapore since independence and some of the painful trade-offs that have been made as his tiny island nation achieved its phenomenal economic development and physical transformation.
Mano Sabnani is currently Chairman and CEO of Rafflesia Holdings, a company he founded to pursue opportunities in the investment, corporate advisory and media sectors. A well-known activist investor, financial writer and advisor, Mano held senior positions with The Business Times and The Straits Times from 1977 to 1995. He then joined DBS Securities as Director of Research, moving on to other positions within the group. He left DBS Bank to join Corporate Brokers International (CBI) as Executive Director. CBI was focused on nurturing and investing in small, promising companies. He also spent 5 years as the CEO and Editor-in-Chief of daily newspaper TODAY from April 2003.
