I joined PageGroup as a consultant in Page Personnel Finance in Singapore and also had the opportunity to setup our technology & secretarial disciplines in this location. Working in different disciplines, brands and locations is a great way to develop professionally and when I was presented with an opportunity for a transfer to India (Mumbai) after being based in Singapore for three years, I grabbed it with both hands!
The learnings have been tremendous, and many have come through facing challenging business situations. There are numerous differences in the way a business needs to be driven in an emerging versus developed market as well in a new setup versus mature business. However, the basics remain the same. Living in different locations also builds up your adaptability and appreciation of people from different backgrounds. Having experience in running businesses successfully in multiple markets has given me the confidence and insights into various aspects of the business. After a successful four and a half years in Mumbai, I have recently moved to Delhi, India to embark on a new journey with PageGroup.
