Walter de Oude, Executive Director & Deputy Chairman of Singlife
I think the single most important success story is, is alignment across your C-suite, senior levels. Having a combined or joint vision of where you want to go is the secret sauce for bringing opportunities together. It makes for good transactions, it makes good for the corporate culture it makes good for how integrations happen. All of that is so so fundamental to what we need to do to be successful. It’s all about hearts and minds.
People don’t wake up in the morning anymore and say I’m going to work today because I need to get a salary. People go to work today to get and feel that they are part of something bigger than themselves and if we can’t demonstrate to the people that that work with us, through our organisations in every way, and through partnerships through what we’re trying to achieve, this joint idea that people are working towards something better or something improving, or something that they can look back in their lives one day in the future and say I was involved in something special and if we can get back to people we can do great, great, great things.
