Hello there. My name is Richard Ong and I am someone who is passionate about helping people realise their full potential to create value and build meaningful relationships. After 14 years of management experience at a multi-national company, I left my corporate life behind to further pursue my deep interest in technology, education and endurance sports.
It was during this time through my solitude and my meetings with giants that pushed me to create a more fulfilling life, filled with purpose and passion. Today, I am on my mission to help others discover their own Purpose, Passion and Pursuit in 3 simple steps, together with my values - Be Kind, Be Brave and Speak The Truth.
Fast forward a few years later, Richard Ong is now an author of 5 books, amongst them are Mindsets and Core Purpose. He now devotes his time to helping people build businesses and projects that can make a difference. He is also a business coach and keynote speaker. A former professional violin player, he is the proud holder of multiple IBM Bravo and Performance awards. He was met by Prince Charles from the UK to discuss his entrepreneurial efforts in Malaysia. Richard has been featured on BFM and Sunway and is the founder of Petalz.org, a company that helps people connect through stories.
