I started Singapore Consultancy in 2016 and I am grateful to see how far we have come. Today we hosted another town hall and Mr Ho Cheow Teck who is our oldest member at 75 and Melanie Wong who is our youngest member at 23 joined together from the office.
Mr Ho Cheow Teck has been my mentor since 2007 and he is one of the fittest among us still. I set our vision (as a social enterprise) to be like NTUC Enterprise and I should also share that Mr Ho's late father is a pioneer labour MP and I link below 2014 news article.
In 1962, Mr Ho was elected the chairman of the new National Trades Union Congress (NTUC) and became its first president two years later. From 1966 to 1967, he served as the NTUC’s secretary-general. In Parliament, Mr Ho succeeded in persuading the Government to modify the landmark Employment Act and the Industrial Relations (Amendment) Act in 1968, as the NTUC saw it unwise to legislate people above 55 out of a job, labour chief Lim Swee Say said.
I still look up to the example Mr Ho set and will continue to make Singapore Consultancy a place where generations are working hand in hand.
