For life planners Wong Kooi Fong and Abel Lee, the ‘people’ factor at work is something that money can’t buy.
By Joyce Lin
When Wong Kooi Fong, 30, an Executive Life Planner with Great Eastern Life, made her first call to a prospective client, she remembered standing outside a shopping centre, trembling and hesitating for 30 minutes before pressing the ‘dial’ button – even though the other party was her close friend.
Today, a year and a half into her job, Kooi Fong exudes a quiet confidence while recounting the incident, with nary a trace of her former self. A self-confessed introvert, you would find that this is hardly the case when you talk to her.
This same type of confidence is found in Abel Lee, 25, also an Executive Life Planner, who carries himself naturally and is experienced beyond his age.
