Whilst we live in a world that is always changing, 2020 has seen unprecedented changes that business needs to acknowledge. Consumer confidence is shaken and needs to be restored. One of our specific issues is accessing property for inspections and making sure that colleagues and clients are safe. Beyond that we have issues with transactional evidence – the market effectively closed for three months with very few sales completing. Even though trading has restarted, the impact of lockdown has yet to be felt. Some sectors, for example hospitality and retail, will take some time – perhaps years – to fully recover and many businesses will be lost.

Selfless leaders create a healthy level of trust necessary to create a culture based on authenticity and transparency, affirms Eric Goh, Vice President & Managing Director, Singapore, Dell Technologies. He tells Jerene Ang about his leadership style, the ideal CHRO, and bridging the gender gap in tech in this exclusive interview.
Q How would you describe your journey with Dell Technologies so far? Tell us what motivates you, keeps you passionate and driven?
In life and throughout my journey with Dell Technologies, I have often been guided by a phrase from one of my favourite books – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. In the book, the author talks about bringing balance to one’s work and personal life.

I’m lucky enough to work in a place where my needs have been met. It is this, along with the thought of building on what I have, that keeps me going.
Besides that, two things continue to fuel my passion for what …

Long story short.
Kanye wants to be president. 

We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States 🇺🇸! #2020VISION

Elon Musk gave him his FULL support!

Kanye West then did an insane interview with Forbes magazine where HE retracted HIS support for Trump, admitted he’d never voted in his life, revealed he’s kinda of anti-vax and also very much not ‘Pro-Choice’ and just a whole lot of crazy.

He then DELETED that tweet, probably in fear of Kanye’s terrifying wrath, BUT Elon should know better than anyone that once it’s on the internet it’s always on the internet.
