I believe that people are at their best when they love what they do and are great at doing it. I help people leverage their passion, sharpen their abilities and find the right opportunity to productively apply their talent to make a difference to their work, to those around them, to their organizations and to the communities they operate in.

Through a career that includes serving governments, MNCs and a family owned conglomerate, operating across three continents and working with wonderfully gifted colleagues, I have established platforms to help people do what they love and be great at doing it.

These include setting up the J&J China Talent Centre, managing an umbrella of GE Leadership Development Centers, launching Singapore’s first national video-based Worker Development Program, establishing a Talent Development Infrastructure in one of Indonesia’s largest conglomerate – the Sinarmas Group – and designing the Leadership Curriculum of Bank Negara, Malaysia’s Central Bank.

Going forward the key question that captures a large chunk of my attention is how to leverage the power of knowledge to further the well-being of individuals, organizations and communities? Knowledge is everywhere – it is a commodity. But the power of knowledge is not about having it but from extracting value off it – through analysis and the productive application of gleaned insights. I see IASCC playing a small but significant role by:

  • Identifying, packaging and delivering practical knowledge to individuals, organizations and communities to help others make better decisions, discover solutions and formulate implementable policies;
  • Scaling up a digitized delivery system so practical knowledge is accessed at the right time and by the right people and organizations.
