Last month as we ended the first half of the year we decided to celebrate our victories and success also plan our next steps and growth strategies to improve further in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
It was a wonderful experience for the whole team to work in such a diverse city and understand the dynamics of the culture. As much as it was productive to plan our next year about growth, business development, and most importantly Team development and learning opportunities for the whole organization. We enjoyed the culture and the entertainment the city offered us.
A fun filled and productive trip came to end with good food, healthy developed relations among the team and and an amazing city life along with having clear and ambitious goals to achieve for the upcoming year. We wrapped up the trip with a great dinner and potential business development opportunities for our organization.
This concluded our trip and everyone came back with a refreshed mindset and an amazing experience with unbelievable business opportunistic landscape in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
The HR department did something fresh this time – Tee-Art jamming. Definitely an experience for it was all our very first time doing this and of course, we knew who can really draw now. Thanks to our bosses to let us have half a day of let-hair-down session.
The Noteway Art Studio is a very cosy and bright space to have much inspirations flow. We will love to be back again.
After 2 days in Shanghai, the 6 of them landed in Shenzhen for another 8 days. Apart from testing the campaign in different sites, the team got to visit and do some shopping.
The culture and environment of these 2 cities we visited are slightly different. Our brand ambassadors got to test the sites from a touristy Disneyland in Shanghai to a more realistic lifestyle of people in Shenzhen. With the contrast of the standard of living, plus point is our brand ambassadors are trained to communicate and speak to people from all levels.
We are counting down to the return of our brand ambassadors already!
2nd time of test campaign in Shanghai, China after 18 months, and it got us all excited. The Group’s Vice President, Adrian Chua along with the team of 5 core players – Jovin Chia, Lim Xiu Zhen, Peh Qi Shan, Dawn Toh and Jeffrey Teo embarked on a 12 days’ trip – 4 days in Shanghai and 8 days in Shenzhen.
Despite being a new territory, the result on the very first day was impressive. The importance of a strong fundamentals was being emphasized to us by the VP, and it is definitely the reason why the team is doing well.
Team China, you have all our backs from Team Singapore! We are waiting to see you back soon!
Future Vice President Meeting (FVPM) took place on the last 2 days of our Seoul trip.
3 countries – Japan, Singapore and Korea, with more than 150 delegates in the meeting, it was definitely an experience for us, the Singapore team.
Thanks to all the speakers who spent time to prepare and share their topics with us, and there were so many take-away points.
Till the next FVPM….
‘What I really enjoyed about the trip is the networking and also the learning we had over there, learnt about the differences between Korea and Singapore, and brough back key action points to actually implement. Also asking all the questions I had and see what else to brush up on from another person’s standpoint. Seeing how the delegates actually fight the cold winds and cold weather to be on the ground still actively approaching, really makes me wonder, how it would be like in Singapore.’ – Samuel Yeo Le Quan
A very strong relationship was fostered when the Singapore team first met the Korea team. We would visit each other whenever we can, if we are at the country. This time, we headed to Jeongmin’s office in Sangwangsimni. The atmosphere was indeed hyped up, and everyone was so busy with training and networking. Our Vice President, Adrian Chua and Manager, Andy Tan, had the honour to be the guest speakers to the Koreans.
We took the opportunity to join the Korean team to the ground to see how they represented their Client and worked their day. For your information, it was 4°C and their enthusiasm was unbreakable.
Appreciated their time after work, to hang out with us for dinner and shared so much knowledge with us even.
