"Crystal is a most impressive person. Clearly ahead of the curve, bridging business and education, (she) meets the often overused criteria of being a thought leader..."
- Ronan McGarvey, Director, AbbVie Singapore, Biopharma Manufacturers Advisory Council Steering Committee Lead
"Crystal is passionate about mindset change and social intelligence programmes. Roots & Wings became a flagship success with the students and a mainstay of future-ready skills development for the University. Her hands-on leadership, willingness to push boundaries and ability to connect with students and senior stakeholders served her very well. Her energy and enthusiasm can be infectious!"
- Mitesh Patel, Managing Director, Black & Veatch, Member of the National University of Singapore's Industry Advisory Board
"This training is extremely useful to me as I just got into a new managerial role and the skills I learnt has made me feel much more confident!"
- Derek Seah, GSK
"Crystal's work at NUS has created powerful transformations in many students. I had the privilege to participate in the Future-Ready Leaders programme, which equipped me with an heightened awareness of self, and the courage to confront my limiting beliefs and pursue my dreams as a trainer. Thank you!" - Sze Zhin Lee, Leadership Development Consultant at Halogen Foundation Singapore
'Future Ready Leaders' programme made me realise that even though life is hard, a lot of things can actually be made better just by improving one's own 'mindset'. Personally, I have used these techniques in bolstering my career, making new friends, improving my relationship with my family and so on. Yet, the most important gain is that I now enjoy peace of mind." - Saurab Verma
"Who doesn't want to learn about themselves from real professionals and heartful participants in one of the most beautiful places in the world, being pampered within an inch of your life? Thank you all for a memorable week" - Cameron O'Reilly, CEO, Bayard Capital
"A breakthrough! The best program myself and my wife have ever been on and the most meaningful." - Declan Macfadden, President, Symrise Asia-Pacific
"I really appreciated Roots & Wings' focus on personal development, because this is something that's often neglected in Singaporean education.
A good education should teach us how to be better people, not just better students. Roots & Wings also taught me that your priorities in life are yours to decide, not for society or the people around you to dictate.
- Erica Lim, NUS Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences
"It was only until I was elected into a leadership position within the school, I realised that I had undermined the value of the soft skills introduced in the program. Interpersonal skills and removing limiting beliefs are key tools that leaders have to utilise to execute their portfolio with efficiency and class.
The lessons I have learned in Roots and Wings are now values I hold dearly, in pursuit to become a better leader, and a better person. I believe Ms Crystal has not only inspired me, but many other individuals as well, and I believe she will continue to motivate many others at Forest Wolf!"
- Benjamin Lau, President of National University of Singapore Economic Society 2017
