I had a new understanding of what entrepreneurship means to me. Before I thought only people that were either super creative or charismatic could become entrepreneurs. I was very inspired by Tom, Jackie, Winnie, Karen and many of my fellow peers on how they found their life purposes and worked their way up to become a leader. I've become more affirmative with my passion in education and management consulting. I was really charged during those three days from the training and discussion I had.

I was greatly touched by the generosity and spirit of sharing of the coaches, especially Karen. Sharing will not take anything away from you, but will help you earn a lot of sincere friends who will help you in the way to success. I was also deeply impressed by Mir Irman's innovation philosophy and his great success. I really hope I could become someone like him in the future, and bring values to our world.

I was pleasantly surprised by how much the program helped me with my MBA application…. After so much self-reflection and self-introspection, I realized that 3CForum really guided me to a clear path after my MBA education. My growth was not just professional, but personal.

All the stories sharing from Karen, Wannie, Mary, Karl, Tom are so inspiring. I also really enjoyed Tom Kosnik’s and Jackie's lecture, and also getting the reinforcement about the importance of emotional intelligence. I greatly appreciate the resume revision and mock interview as well, it's great to learn from others' "mistakes".

Participating in 3CForum’s career accelerator program was definitely an inspiring journey for me. There are many enlightening moments:
We need to identify and develop relationship with career stakeholders (learned from Prof. Tom Kosnik); Don’t be afraid to speak out and ask for help. Worry less about the cultural obstacles and convert them to an advantage whenever possible. (Learned from Drs. Karen Wong & Winnie Wan); Innovation is the way to redefine the problem, not solutions. (Learned from Mir Imran); Be loyal to the team and team members, even sometimes very hard decision need to be made. (Prof. Tom Ehrlich).

3CForum’s Career Accelerator Program was an eye-opening event to me. I'm not new to career planning as I have read a lot of great articles mentioning the importance of networking, leadership, interview preparation, etc. However, this is the first time how intensively and systematically I rediscovered the importance of these core skills, and how urgently I felt the need to improve myself. It might be because I was truly inspired by so many great speakers/mentors and some extraordinary attendees. Another heart-opening change was why I wanted to be a better me with higher EQ, strong leadership, and passion.

I was most impressed by the stories told by the highly achieved speakers. They inspired me a lot by opening up new possibilities of career and life, and encouraged me to overcome setbacks and follow my passion.
