He is also an artist having received his training in art in watercolours and oils in the United States in the early 1990s. His exhibition record includes multiple shows at the annual Singapore Watercolour Society exhibitions and at various venues throughout North America as well as private commissions. His artwork can be found in collections in the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Singapore and Malaysia. He has been supporting an orphanage through the sale of his paintings.
As he is fluent in ancient Chinese, his contribution to the FCPA Blog is centered on his interest in the old Chinese classics, to breathe life into words of wisdom from the sages and their application in contemporary management. Compared to Sun Zi’s Art of War which is taught in every management school, the teachings from the Four books of Confucius offer great management insights but unfortunately remain untapped as it was not written as a management manual and requires understanding to decipher the ancient text.
