Also, I am very thankful to Henry Tan and HR for nominating and supporting my application for this competition. I hope that by attending this, I can build lasting friendships and also adopt best practices to help us grow as a firm.”

Talent development is highly regarded in the firm to groom the next generation of employees to be great leaders by honing their unique skillsets and creating opportunities that allow them to understand what makes them tick.”
