KK: When did you first move to SG and where did you move from?
KS: To be specific – on 7th September 2005, from Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
KK: What was your first impression about SG? Still the same?
KS: A well planned city with very impressive infrastructure and landscape where I didn’t have to lock the front door! SG is getting better, each time in every aspect, hence 13 years in the country!
KK: How did you become involved with running yacht charters? What makes it so much fun?
KS: I was in HR for 13 years. After moving to SG, I headed HR for a start-up. One year into the role, I wanted to take a sabbatical, but I was offered a marketing role for newly arrived trimaran yacht. I found the chartering of yachts very interesting and took up the offer instantly. The best part about being in this industry is the people we meet and the services we offer. Every client is different and so are their requirements, that makes work interesting. The fleet has grown from just one yacht to more than 50 yachts hence our nickname the ‘Grandma’ of the industry.
KK: You have been actively involved with many social causes from wildlife rescue, to dog shelter, running cross city marathons and helping distressed children. What’s the latest project you are helping with?
KS: Currently I am helping an NGO “Sa Ni Sa” that empowers under privileged women by providing them jobs, income and education for the rural children. I am promoting/ selling their food product, a healthy snack that is handmade, in Singapore and Malaysia.
KK: What advice would you give for most of us who struggle with managing time to be able to do so many things like you?
KS: I would like to quote unquote “It’s the Will not the Skill”. Prioritize, make your do-to-lists and get cracking. Magic will unfold and you will realize your dream.
KK: What is the one thing people don’t know about you?
KS: I work like a Captain and Play like a Pirate !! (Laughs)
KK: Are you offering any special promotions for our readers?
KS: Yes absolutely! We would like to offer a SGD100 off for your readers when they book a yacht in their birthday month. They simply have to quote Promo Code: KITKAT.
