These days, companies that promote servant leadership with a drive for watching people reach their fullest potential are scarce. However, at Mary Kay, this philosophy is pervasive throughout the ranks. Besides being one of the most successful direct selling organisations in the industry, Mary Kay is also known for its unique mission – to enrich the lives of women.

“Mary Kay is a company that sells a way of life, and that way of life is development of women, allowing them to believe in themselves, to be the best that they can be,” says Mr K K Chua, President of Mary Kay Asia Pacific. “It almost sounds too idealistic, but I can tell you that it works.”
