Team Surplus - Jeff Ong.jpg

“How can I help?” is Jeff’s signature tagline. When Jeff asks you questions, it’s because he knows that asking the right questions is better than knowing the right answer. He is patient, open and creates safe spaces to build on your own self-discovery with further insights.

Dr Tanai.jpg

The buoyant energy from Dr. Tanai comes from inside out and people gravitate to his warmth. He is easily the smartest person in the room yet bowls you over with his child-like curiosity about you. Dr Tanai can make a dry topic like financial statements analysis funny by relating it to courtship and marriage.

Team Surplus - Dominic Chew.jpg

Dominic describes his sense of humour as The Economist - a succinct way of saying he is level-headed in his views on global, social, economic and business news while being quirky  and unconventional at the same time. He takes a visual approach to issue framing and solutioning and draws on his sketchpad to clue you in.

Team Surplus - Irene Teo_edited.jpg

Irene draws you in instantly with her positivity and succinct quips. She makes you feel like you’re the only person in the room even if the room is full of people. Some people are the life of the party and then there’s Irene – the actual party.  When she is facilitating, the energy is electric and the learning is high.

Team Surplus - Peter Lim.jpg

It is impossible to take a bad photo of Lynette as she is impeccably groomed at all times. The detail orientation carries into her facilitation where she is on point with her summaries and recaps. We have role-played debate before with Lynette, she’s a super-substitute in any role be it preposition, opposition or moderator.

Team Surplus - Peter Lim.jpg

When asked to complete the sentence, “At home I’m the go-to person for…”, Peter laughed, “whatever they want me to do!”. In his free time, he takes long contemplative walks at MacRitchie and serves in church doing meet-and-greet and guiding new visitors. His favourite film genre is action and crime. He carries his can-do attitude, investigative inclination, action orientation, patience and shepherding to his role as a facilitator.
