Meet two Great Eastern representatives who have managed to thrive in their career and are now reaping the rewards of their hard work and labour.

Great Eastern Life: Making Life Great With Small Favours

By Charlene Tan

“Great Eastern’s Centre for Excellence has given me the knowledge, skills and the right attitude to keep persevering to drive my knowledge and skills,” says Louis Ching, a Senior Associate Manager with Great Eastern Life Assurance. Today, his title reflects that he’s scaled the mountain of success, yet he humbly adds that “the climb up the mountain is more fun than being at the mountain top”.

About five years ago, after hitting the big ”three-O”, Louis decided to leave a well-paying job in the civil service to answer his inner thirst to join the business world. “I realised that insurance is a good business model, never out of fashion, with no start-up cost.” Yet facts and figures aside, Louis found that the insurance industry held deeper meaning both for himself and people around him.

Commissioned with a goal to make life great for clients, Great Eastern takes pride in grooming their team to help people achieve their financial goals and receive maximum coverage for their families.
