Overall Winners of New
Entrepreneur Category, The Entrepreneur of the Year
Award 2016

Clinching the title as Overall Winner of the New Entrepreneur Category is an affirmation for our efforts in transforming the funeral industry. In the past, others used to call my fellow peers undertakers and many people would shun this line of work. Today we are very proud to be known as Funeral Directors and we believe that we are part of a noble profession; We stand by the families in their saddest of times, to bring dignity to their loved ones’ last moments and to be the gatekeepers of tradition. Winning the EYA will allow us to lead our industry to increase service standards and breathe new life into our trade. Most importantly, we are very glad to be a brand that our team is proud of, and a brand that is fondly remembered and called upon by our customers.

Overall Winners of New Entrepreneur Category, The Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2016

Winning the EYA definitely lends more credibility to me and the company. This is especially important in cases where we are looking to work with new partners or in trying to convince people of a new venture or business idea. 

My advice to future participants to EYA: Be authentic and sincere. If you know your business well and are hands-on, it will show in the judging process. Do not be afraid to try for the award. I think many people often hold back from applying because they self-doubt. My philosophy has always been that you never know till you try. Even if you do not win anything, you would have learnt about what else you need to work on to improve. See it as a learning journey and process.

Winning the EYA is a milestone achievement for both myself and the company. We have received great recognition within the entrepreneurial community especially in our niche market of Railway Engineering. Many new opportunities have arisen and we have been receiving increasing support for our future ventures. At the same time, the Award has given me a great sense of responsibility to strive further and achieve greater feats, to live up to the standards of an exemplary entrepreneur.

I believe that the EYA rewards those who have given their best and shown their utmost passion and drive in their business. I hope to see many more entrepreneurs such as myself being rewarded for all their hard work and determination.

Winning this Overall EYA 2013 opens up new opportunities for the company especially to those areas that have not previously crossed my mind and also the opportunities to know more friends in this business circle other than those in the construction industry; to learn from their journey to success.
