To be Asia’s No.1 Business School.

A healthy lunch with Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai, Chairman & the Top Glove management team to signify the beginning of awesome things to happen with the ATCEN Education Group and PORTMAN Education Group. 

  1. When I first started the company 14 years ago, I was just a trainer with NOTHING but the support of Carole, Ken & Jeremy. They believed in me since day one and they are still supporting me to achieve our vision.
  2. Carole has been with me for 19 years. She was my girlfriend then and now my wife and business partner.

  3. Ken has been with me for 16 years. He was my colleague and now business partner.

  4. Jeremy has been with me for 18 years. He was my client, colleague and now business partner.

  5. They may not have always agreed or are happy with my decisions. However, they have always followed my instructions and directions. This I always appreciate.

  6. Trust is NOT built by what you say but by what you do and goes through with me in good and bad times.

  7. As such, I have always focused on building a sustainable business so that it can benefit everyone. Our clients, students, staff, and business partners.  It must be a win-win-win situation for all.

  8. Our vision is very clear – To be Asia’s No. 1 Business School. When we are nobody, people will say the vision is nothing but a dream. That’s exactly what it is. We must have a dream so big that it drives us every morning to move mountains and make things happen. Remember we started with nothing and today, we have built a very strong foundation and platform for us to move towards that direction.

  9. The picture you see above is a very meaningful picture. It is meaningful because we have a very notable, humble and successful billionaire, Tan Sri Dr. Lim Wee Chai that runs the largest glove company in the world that shares the same values with us with the same alignment of business integrity, high performance and high productivity with the exceptional focus on Top Quality.

  10. I am confident with the continuous engagement and joint business ventures that we will achieve from this awesome relationship with Tan Sri Lim and Top Glove, we too will become Asia’s No.1 Business School in due course. The best way to become No.1 is to learn from those that are there now.

  11. I will be sharing more on our new goals in our Annual Strategic Direction Meeting 2018 in November later this year.

  12. We are now on a mission to provide beyond education. We are making a difference by making lives better.

  13. Awesome things are happening. You definitely want to be around for all this to happen and experience it yourself.

It is not easy to find a business partner (partners) appreciate our effort to make the business grow to achieve the mission and vision. Some do not have the integrity to grow a sustainable business with us.

Agreed!! Trust is NOT built by what you say, but by what you do and goes through during good and bad time together.

Yes! I definitely want to be around to witness the awesome things happen and experience it myself.

There are ways that lead to everything, it is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible. Faith is the first factor in a life devoted to service, I can sincerely say that nothing is impossible to a willing heart. Lets work our vision & mission together.

Putri Kaseger said...

You are so lucky to have Ms.Carole, Mr.Ken and Mr.Jeremy. It is so blessed to have someone that trust us, and stay loyal to us in good and bad times. And definitely I want to experience that AWESOME moment as well. I humbly thank you for giving me this opportunity.

In my opinion, the quote reflects you, Mr. Ernie. I am happy to be a part of the team and let's create a positive atmosphere for good things to happen.

This is indeed a great milestone to achieve in a very short period of time. However I am very sure it didn't come easy. The up's and downs that the team has gone through has lead to this milestone. Awesome things are already happening and more to come!

Every moment I read & comment the blog, I will always flash back to the moment I first join to this AWESOME organisation.

Starting from a stanger to student, then graduated and now work and making something AWESOME with everyone of you here. I always appreciate I got the opportunity to join this organisation. This place give me wonderful memories, memorable war scars, life direction and AWESOME lifestyle!

I will definitely stay around with all these AWESOME Happenings and make things from good to great, great to AWESOME!

To make all these happen and go to the next level, everyone of us must focus our part and do it right. A lesson taught by my mentor, "The next level only for those who can achieve basic results."

Everyone must do our part and make sure everything go right, we learn, we fail, we gain, as long as we continue do it right, we will get there together very soon, because I have an AWESOME Organisation with a strong CULTURE here!

Appreciate and thanks for everything.

3 months ago, I was thinking to quit my job because of a lot of bad influences and negativity outside, and started to see a lot of people quit from this organisation.
It's painful when seeing people come and go, especially all the people that I really care.

But I decided to stay, and FOCUS what I need to do for all the young generations. Because I know what I want and I really want to make a difference to make lives better.

Today, I really proud that I made the right decision and it really amazing when see your students growing and improving every single day.

- Make a difference to make lives better through education.

I am glad that I am a part of this journey, thanks for everything.

I strongly believe that PORTMAN College can become Asia's No.1 Business School!
Although we are just a 4 years college, but we have a very strong team and a very clear direction to achieve what we want to achieve.

If you want to go fast, go ALONE.
If you want to go far, go with a TEAM!

Let's go ALL OUT and make it happen!

Dream can never be achieved if we only plan for a strategic goal and expect it to happen by itself. We have to transform the strategic goal to a tactical goal in order to make our dream comes true. Talk is cheap, we must always take action to get what we wish to have. No matter how others criticise us, we just have to take it positively and focus on what we are doing now. Results are the only thing to prove them wrong. If they keep criticising us, what we have to do is just keep moving forwards and upwards. As long as we know exactly what we are doing, We should not take their words personally. Instead of that, we take it as a force to push us to the peak of mountain. These are the things that I can find in PORTMAN College.This is why PORTMAN College can become who it is now, just within 4 years. My friends have been asking me why do I study in PORTMAN College, "you can never feel that you are a part of your college and grow together with it in any other colleges", this is what I told them. I am so proud of my college, PORTMAN College. I wish to learn more from Mr.Ernie, the Asia's No.1 Business Coach. Besides, I really can't wait to witness PORTMAN College shifting to the new building and more and more AWESOME things to happen.

By the way, thank you so much for the AWESOME sharing, Mr Ernie!
