I have great empathy for people, especially youths, because they are the future and leaders of the next generation. A keen learner of lifeskills, I have brought a few of my hobbies up to professional instructor level, such as photography, yoga, freediving, scuba diving etc. In teaching, I learn more. With close to 20 years' of experience in the travel, leisure and media industries, I would like to share my experiences and mistakes with the next generation of professionals in these industries. In 2020, I have founded 10:10 Media Productions Pte Ltd as a non-profit media production social enterprise to train ex-offenders into media professionals and technical crew on film production sets. With IHL volunteers in my social enterprise, I hope to guide them better in their path of life and early career development.

Achilles Systems Pte Ltd, Francois-Guillaume Lutton
Francois-Guillaume Lutton Achilles Systems Pte Ltd
Occupation : Executive
Industries : Finance/Insurance , Technology , Venture Capital / Private Equity
I am a Finance and Legal Head with over 10 years’ experience in financial management, risk management, budgetary control & forecasting, compliance, and auditing, at start-up and established companies within Tech (SaaS), Banking, Auditing, and Oil & Gas industries across markets in Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, and France.

I’ve always enjoyed tackling complex puzzles and challenges. This passion is what first drew me to Finance, where I was able to use critical thinking, data analysis, and strategy to take on any problems. From there, I branched into corporate development and start-up scaling, as well as investor and client relationship management, which allowed me the opportunity to drive tangible, meaningful results, and spearhead change first-hand.

I’ve now been fortunate enough to lead business cycles (regional expansion, launching new business verticals, M&A, restructuring, etc.) across multiple regions, develop deep expertise in business risk management (especially for start-ups), and come to specialise in devising strategy, penetrating new markets, and introducing new product lines.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Not that I had major adversity or misfortune but there had been times where I had to make decisions or got thrown into situations that were less than desirable. In every scenario, I stick to my career resiliency framework – take a leap of faith, pick up new knowledge and skills even if it was the most boring role ever while at the same time looking out for better opportunities through my network. Throughout my 26-year career, there were several inflections points that shaped how I grow personally and professionally. I hope to share these experiences with others and at the same time learn from others.

I am based in Singapore, currently working as Operations Director for the sales organization in ACI Worldwide, a payments software company. In this role, there are 3 main responsibilities - Partner Operations, Market Expansion and Risk Officer Delegate with a common denominator of ensuring governance and compliance against corruption and bribery practices. As my role is global, I work from home and my nights are busier due to meetings with people in the US and Europe. Prior to ACI, I worked in Hewlett Packard for 11 years doing various roles in customer service and support. HP was the place where my career bloomed and ACI is the place where my career flourished thanks to investment I made getting mentors, coaches, and sponsors.

When I am not working, I enjoy cooking and baking, a skill that I picked up while working and living in the UK last 4 years. I am constantly looking for recipes that are not only easy to make but delicious and beautifully plated. I also try to exercise regularly, an area where I have low discipline and hired a trainer to keep my commitment!

One word to describe my work is growth. I gain great satisfaction seeing people grow in their skill set and get transformed in their mindset. Shortly after graduation, it was a choice between a good paying banking career and a start up focusing on youth development. I chose the latter.
But looking back, I've never regretted the choice. It means I can wake up each day knowing that I do what I believe in. This work has enabled me to inspire youths of different age group, background and culture; and engaging fellow educators and parents in their roles.

Returning to Singapore, he worked with local social enterprise, Edible Garden City, to continue to build urban edible landscapes and champion Singapore’s grow-your-own-food movement.

Today, he is the Director of Carbon InQ Pte Ltd - a local company that teaches Agriculture-based experiential learning programmes at schools and corporate firms. Furthermore, he is also the founder of Project 33 - a family initiated farming movement that aims to unite neighbourhoods through community farming, cooking, educational activities and the practice of sharing first.

Traveling down an unusual career path as an urban farmer, Alexius is driven by the mission to help fellow urbanites reconnect with Nature and with one another.
