I have been blessed with the opportunities to experience BOTH, receiving funding or money to further my ambitions or efforts, and giving funding or money to make dreams happen for others! I have been in both end of the spectrum, of running a startup which received 'Angel Investment' from investors, to holding a key position in the past where i could 'Advice' and approve funding for new startups, founded by youths. 

People often asked me - What must i do, to get people to give me money to realize my ideas?

As one of the most anticipated movies hit all major cinemas worldwide today, comic book and entertainment juggernaut, Marvel sure knows how tell the story of their newest hero and one of the original members of The Avengers in the comics, the Ant-Man and bringing the character alive into the Marvel cinematic universe.

Well, staying up late is considered natural to many Gen-Y talents, primarily because their 'Active' mode has been hardwired into their system since they were in university, stressing through and burning the midnight oil of studying for exams and assignments. 

Now, the question beckons - What are the most optimum time for your Gen-Ys to function and what tasks should you assign to them during those specific time slots?

I have been mentored by record-breaking sales people, to builders of multi-million dollars businesses, to very effective politicians today, all of them share one common message about 'Winning Peoples' Hearts' - They ultimately 'Buy' YOU! 

Here are some powerful strategies on How to Design Your Destiny by Being at the Right Place, at the Right Time, with the Right People

In our journey of inspiring and creating a more 'Livable and Productive' work space and culture among the multinational companies and clients which we work with, we have been observing a certain trend among leaders in organisations behave towards their Gen-Y staffs. You may be leading a Fortune 100 company like many of our clients, or a small business in need of raw and genius ideas and energy from the younger generations, they all exhibit the same pattern of management.

All you have to do is - Be Humane and Be Present when they need YOU, or even when they do not need you.

Being a Marvel fan myself, i have developed a habit of analysing the 'Hidden Gems' in their line of movies, often reflecting on the application of the heroes or villains' ideologies, actions and consequences, affecting everyday business and life.

He had always wowed me with his ability to inspire, engage and evoke the inspirations of some 5,000 people in the same hall with his sheer charisma and energy! I even got the chance to meet him face-to-face and certainly enough, his presence was overwhelming! I would describe it as a 'Jolt of Positive Energy' surging across your body.

Now, being in the 'Training and Speaking' scene myself, i begun to analyse his best practices and strategies to engage and lock the attentions of 5,000 people in his most recent seminar in Singapore.
