“I love my job and am very thankful for the opportunity that I have to seek purpose and help others find theirs in a global company. None of this would have been possible without the foundation of leadership I was given as a class prefect over multiple years in my JSS/SS sojourns, and as the Headboy of the class of 99 graduating set. The educational rigor prepared me for my undergraduate & postgraduate degrees in Engineering, Business and Education, and the exposure to inter school academic/sport competitions/social clubs prepared me for handling increasing levels of leadership responsibility” I’m a proud alumnus of ISL.
