  1. Dear Dr Neo,

    On behalf of ITE, we would like to invite you to be one of our speaker for our Eco Conference on 16 October 2014 held at ITE College West. It would be a 20 minutes presentation on your Marine Life Park at Sisters Island sharing. At the end of the conference, there would be a panel discussion.

    Please email your response to me at sharon_yeo@ite.edu.sg. I am contactable at 64111239.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you.
    Sharon Yeo
