I commit to a cause, be it in my personal life or the vision
for the company, I believe in giving it my best and going the
full distance. Success can only be achieved with true commitment
to a cause, a vision or a dream."
PETER SEAH LIM HUAT, CHAIRMAN
"Coming from humble beginnings has taught me never to take anything for
granted and to treasure every bit I have. Never be afraid to dream, and to work
hard towards that dream. There are no short cuts in life, and no promises. But
if you're passionate enough about what you believe in, you can succeed."
TAN PHENG HOCK
"After a long stint as a financial regulator, adjusting to and meeting the
challenges of the private sector is exciting for me. Particularly in manufacturing
and technology, which are entirely different from finance. I intend to leverage
on my background to deliver value to shareholders by striking a balance between
sound financial management and commercial considerations."
KOH BENG SENG
"One of my favourite Bible verses is from Micah Chapter 6, Verse 8: "And
what does the Lord require of you? But to act justly and to love mercy, and to
walk humbly with your God." As a lawyer, I could identify with that calling.
I have tried, consciously or otherwise, to excel in my legal career by acting
justly and loving mercy."
LUCIEN WONG YUEN KUAI
"Hope for a better Age (Auspicium Melioris Aevi) encapsulates the Singapore
story of the hope and faith of exceptional leadership, which under stress tests,
revealed qualities of excellence, honesty, courage and endurance. All Singaporeans
have a better life as a consequence. The truths of faith and hope shape and sustain
DR PHILIP PILLAI
|"I love working
on challenging assignments. It gets my adrenalin all pumped
up and requires me to focus all my energy and abilities to
deal with the task. Always one to look on the bright side,
I treat all difficulties not as problems but as challenging
TAN GUONG CHING
"We all have one life, and it's
up to us what we make of it. No one owes us success in
life, and it's up to us to choose what is important and
work hard towards it. For me, I would be happy to know
that I have done my best and that I have been a blessing
to my friends and loved ones."
MG NG YAT CHUNG
"I have been in public service
since I graduated as I feel that there is so much to
do to help make Singapore a better place to live and
to work in. But as government administration is an
extremely complex process with the needs of Singaporeans
so diverse and ever changing, there is no end of things
to be done in the limited time and resources available."
DR TAN KIM SIEW
"After working with colleagues
from National Service days to Temasek Linked Companies
to overseas business partnerships, my greatest takeaway
from my career will always be the many long lasting
friendships fostered, and the smiling faces of the
young ones as they confidently overcome their tests
and tribulations of working life. It is so satisfying
to see them emerge, pick themselves up, and climb higher

have an old plastic frame on my desk my wife gave me
years ago. It holds a saying, “If you have a
dream, never let it go. For dreams are little seeds
from which tomorrows grow." It isn’t great
poetry but it is an inspiring thought. I often wish
I had the courage to follow it always."
at school and the Boy Scouts helped channel my energy into discoveries
and having fun doing things. They let me skip classes to collect
films from distributors for our Friday school viewings, and have
a free run of the Physics lab to improvise new experiments. With
encouragement and practice, dreaming and doing became second
PROF LUI PAO CHUEN
" Being the youngest in the family with seven siblings has taught me the
meaning of service excellence, especially since I was always imposed with high
standards and expectations. For me, success means being able to satisfy all those
I care for, whether it's my family, bosses, customers, subordinates or friends.
This value has always spurred me to greater challenges."
WINSTON TAN TIEN HIN
" From an early age, I was taught that the only thing restricting a person
from achieving great things is the limits he chooses to impose upon himself.
Life is therefore a journey of constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible – and
most importantly, one must have fun doing it!"
