Guest Speaker : Kim Tan
Our welcome guest at Rotary lunch on Wednesday 28th January was Kim Tan who spoke on three personal elements, first his early life, loving family and English education, second his business career and third two charities which are changing destitute peoples lives for the better.
Kim payed tribute to his father's dedication and hard work.Although coming from humble origins he had assured Kim and his other brothers and sisters the advantage of a first class English education which individually led to a Phd and ultimate business success.In the UK he had met a lovely lass from Yorkshire, who became his wife and lifelong partner.
A very busy Kim is the Founder Chairman of SpringHill Management Ltd managing a number of private equity funds including the biotech VC fund, SpringHill BioVentures Sdn Bhd.He is also a director of a number of biotech companies including GeneMedix plc, TranXenoGen Inc, Active Capital Trust plc and AsiaPrise Biotech Sdn Bhd.He is an advisor to Psimei Pharmaceuticals plc, BlueSpace International Ltd, and a number of government agencies on biotechnology.He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and Director of Saracens Rugby Club.
Kim spoke of the International business issues of capital chasing low labour costs on a global scale to maintain or increase margins.India and China can offer a relatively unlimited labour resource in manufacturing and services together with a graduate potential becoming ever more skillful and tuned to the needs of multinationals.
The heavy labour costs of the initial European community states are presenting difficult challenges.More moves could be seen towards fostering marketing partners to utilize the best of low cost labour and added value with the old world expertise.
Kim highlighted two charities close to his heart, speaking first of the excellent works of Jubilee Action who are based locally in Wonersh, a charity working primarily with street children in Brazil, Guatemala, Phillipines and Thailand, with new projects in India and Eastern Europe.
