Feedback for Celebrating Education - Joy of Learning

Were you at the dialogue session  "Celebrating Education - Joy of Learning" with Dr Tan Lai Yong?
Here is some feedback from some participants at the event:

Ng Siew Bee: "Dr Tan has been inspiring as he displays much clarity and conviction in what he believes in. He is exemplary of an outstanding individual who translates his passion to action. Don’t just talk, do."

Grace Tan: "…. he has a very different and authentic approach to learning, teaching, educating the human spirit."

Caroline Sin Mei Chuen: "I was extremely touched and inspired by Dr Tan's sharing. Through personal anecdotes and stories drawn from a life of community service, Dr Tan reminded me of the values central to education - character development over results, imparting values over achieving KPIs. It was an incredible privilege to be able to hear him in person."
