Dato’ Sri David Yeat Sew Chuong
Aspiring to lead his group to a greater height.
Dato’ Sri David’s life has never been a straight road since he was born, from zero to hero, he experienced numerous challenges. With his extraordinary perseverance and indomitable spirit, he has overcome all sorts of difficulties.
His achievement today is no fluke, each hike came with its struggles and success was never a coincidence for him. His career path, like a roller coaster; bumpy, up and down, through rain and shine. Decades of hard work in the industry included joy and disappointments. He truly enjoyed the limelight during his success, but when he fell it seems the taunts and slanders would never end. Dato’ Sri David reminds himself to always be vigilant as he knows that no one can stand still on the top forever. We must always be aware of the global environment and economic trend; constantly strengthening our competitive advantage to ensure continued growth. He truly believes that god will always help those who help themselves.
This mind set and belief is what leads him to great success. Having gone through all difficult and rough times, he is aspiring to lead his group to a greater height with more determination, wisdom and synergies from various strategic alliances.
“Be vigilant and progressive in difficulties persistence leads to victory.”Dato' Sri David Yeat
