- How/Why did you start as an entrepreneur? What set you off?
In the early years of my career, I founded a global project with a brilliant educator from America. This programme called the Global Learning Exchange (GLE) was featured in both Singapore and the USA. It was a memorable project that saw two continents share useful lesson ideas leveraging on Skype and was housed in Moodle. We had tremendous joy working on this global collaboration as educators. The main objective of the programme was to allow students to enjoy cultural exchanges through effective collaboration using sound pedagogical tools of teaching. We shared our project on a few global platforms specifically at International Conferences.
