Automation, machine learning, data intelligence, and regional expansion were just some of the key takeaways from our Vision 2020 event. The four-hour company-wide session was spearheaded by our co-founders CEO Rhonda Wong and CPO Race Wong. Leaders from 19 teams presented to 72 team members across Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines about their biggest accomplishments (and setbacks) in 2019 and goals for 2020.
Vision 2020 is akin to the start of a race that has been three years in the making. This helps to align all our team members towards the same goal, as we continue to strive for excellence in our respective roles in striving to become the world’s leading proptech ecosystem.
After the event, Rhonda Wong, CEO, commented;
Even though we know our team is working hard on a daily basis, it is still mind-blowing hearing the presentations of the work they have accomplished and the sense of ownership they have. It was inspiring to say the least.
