Attend and Prosper! Make full use of the downturn!

Hi Guys, I’m just back from Vietnam and immediately I rushed down to Sakae Holdings Dinner and Dance. Douglas Foo started the business at the height of the economic crisis in Year 1997. From a single store, it quickly grew. The group nowhas over 100 stores around the globe and employs thousands. I am proud to be invited to be on the Board of Directors when the company was listed on the SGX. It was the most over-subscribed issue ever, and certainly a proud moment for the founder.

You see, many opportunities are created in downturns. You either suffer or you take full advantage of them. Take folks like Douglas, he created an immensely successful business and created employment opportunities for so many people. You too can make a difference if you give yourself a chance to be successful.

I started my business at the peak of the crisis and bought commercial shop houses. It was extremely challenging and the bumpy ride I experienced was emotionally stressful but I do cherish those moments. These moves set the foundation for ERC Holdings today, marking our foray into the education, real estate and hotel businesses in Singapore.

We will share more with you at the Success Forum on 2nd November. Douglas, myself and Dr John Vong with share with you how to create opportunties for yourself in the property and business arena in the months ahead. We will share with you how to overcome fear, analyse market opportunities and move ahead and create a great future for yourself.

For our students, it is free but we have limited allocations so book your ticket today! See you there and God Bless! Visit the event page www.erc.com.sg/ercsuccess2011
