For banking and finance veteran David Seow, the African proverb “If you want to run fast, run alone. If you want to run far, run together” carries a particular resonance — it encapsulates his core management values of teamwork, communication, innovation and action.
“Each person’s contribution matters, but only if we work together,” says the group managing director of Singapore Exchange (SGX)-listed precision plastic components manufacturer Fu Yu Corp.
“Teamwork is key for an organisation to flourish. We need people who are able to complement each other’s diverse skillsets, and people who do their part properly to derive the right outcomes for everyone in the organisation,” Seow says.
