Interview With Media Entrepreneur Ryan Tan

Founder and Cinematographer of Night Owl Cinematics

I got to know Ryan early 2013. That was when I first came across fascinating YouTube channels such as nigahiga and Smosh.


It was such refreshing content from the boring stuff you get on TV.

It also got me thinking if there might be such channels locally. My search brought me to Night Owl Cinematics channel.

They just released a video which became 2013 Singapore most trending Youtube:

Back then I was still running RecruitPlus and was constantly looking for new ways to get publicity and market the business.

Interview With HR Entrepreneur Madu Ionascu

Co Founder and CEO at Salary Board

I first got to know Madu via LinkedIN.


This was back in Oct 2015 and he was a recent follower of my blog. Coincidentally both of us registered for the same event within that week and that is where we first caught up.

We met up a few days later over coffee and spent close to 3 hours learning about each other products and businesses. You know those moments when you first got to know someone new but it felt like you had known them for ages?

The first thing that will strike you about Entrepreneur Violet Lim is her bright purple outfit.

Save time by sending customized InMails to all your prospects at once.

Interview With HR Entrepreneur Gordon Ng

The first time I met Gordon was probably about four years ago. Back then I was searching around for a payroll solution that could cater to our unique client requirements.


He didn’t have much of a product yet but I could see fascinating concepts and sound principles. We both agree that payroll solutions are very antiquated solutions that need to catch up with modern times.

Fast forward to today, the solution is polished and is gaining rapid adoption in Singapore.
