This is the time of the year where we reflect on our journey in 2014. I always take this opportunity to re-read my previous postings. Look at what I have said in Dec 2013 and Dec 2012. Each year, I told myself I want to finish the year in a stronger position. Well, I believe we have done that as well !!
First, our apollo has made base landing in global markets. We are expanding our business relationships to other regions and things are getting exciting.
Second, we have been expanding our talent pool. We have great talents coming on board to become our team members. From diverse background and experiences. This is certainly exciting.
Third, we have a new basecamp – our new home. For the past 2.5 years, we have stayed in Blk 71 Ayer Rajah Crescent – the block that was deemed as the most compact Silicon Valley in the world. it has been a good place for us to work things out. But now, we have moved into a bigger office. We have our own server rooms, sufficient meeting rooms and breakout corners, sufficient play space for the creative juices to kick in. This is excellent.
In my own view, this new basecamp is like the basecamp for climbers making the assault up Mount Everest. It is the camp that is equipped with sufficient supplies for us to make the climb. It is the home that we would spend a considerable amount of our time to work things out, clear obstacles, overcome challenges and celebrate our victories.
2014 has been a great year for us. I can’t imagine this at the start of the year but we finished well and strong. This is most important.
We also have a good strong basecamp now for us to begin our assault up Mount Everest, to be among the best in the global market. It is going to be much tougher. Conditions are unknown and uncertain. Weather would be tricky. But we know, we are ready.
2015 – here we come !!
With best regards
