What’s your role all about?
As the founder and the CEO of the company, my role is extremely diverse, from managing the three offices to finding new customers, implementing activities or looking for new talents to join us. I also define the strategy of the company and plan its constant expansion.
What’s the hot topic in your sector right now?
The hot topic these days is definitely the change in the strategy of many companies, switching their focus from China to South East Asia, a region that has been a little neglected for the past 15 years. Singapore, but most of all Vietnam is definitively the hotter topics in the region.
Of course Covid is also a hot topic, it is a challenge that made us change our way of working and implement new solutions to our customers. Being a small new entity is obviously a great advantage.
Why are you a member of AustCham in Singapore?
To connect more with the Australian business community here in Singapore, which is among the most dynamic foreign communities. Australian business is thriving here in Singapore, and T&S needs to be part of it.
Where are your favourite places to go to relax in Singapore?
Pulau Ubin is among my favourite places. A glimpse of old Kampung life, it is laid back and refreshing. Lazarus is also a good place, which tends to get busier these days unfortunately.
What are your predictions for the next 12 months?
If I had such foresight… I hope that the situation will get better and that the region, and especially Singapore will open again and that it will recover from these hard times. We shall not forget what we learned from this situation, and be flexible.
