“Thanks for the great seminar."  Sunny Tan
25 May 2010 - Canberra
Event: A seminar on "Emotional Intelligence for Office Professionals" organised by AIOP ACT Steering Committee

"Thank you for your lively presentation today.
I found it very inspiring. I have been at a crossroad for the last 4 months at work and yesterday I found out that I had an opportunity to work in another Branch, within my organisation, for a six week period and I immediately baulked at it. I thought I was worried about my boss and how she would cope at this busy time without me but I now think it may also be because it requires me to step out of my five year comfort zone and dare to do something different. My boss is very supportive and says that I should be "selfish" for a change and think of me. And, as you said today, things happen that can seem magical and it would seem that listening to you today was exactly what I needed to enable me to put my current situation into perspective.
I enjoy my job and enjoy working with my new female boss after experiencing a very good relationship with my previous boss (male) of the past 5 years. Initially I did not react well to the change at the beginning of the year when my boss told me he was taking a transfer to Sydney as that also instantly took me out of my comfort zone. However, I am enjoying a great relationship with my new boss and am now motivated to endeavour to "re-shape" my current role to tailor it to our working needs.
Thank you for reminding me of how important my emotional intelligence is to my working life."  Cathy

11 Feb 2009 - PMI Global Congress Asia Pacific, Kuala Lumpur
Delivery of “Inspiring Peak Performance from your Project Teams” workshop

“The workshop delivered by Dominic Siow was the best focus area session I attended during the recent PMI Global Congress held in Kuala Lumpur. Through his unique and animated delivery of the topics, the participants were captivated and able to stay focus throughout the four hour session.  Dominic used a variety of delivery styles: a good combination of lecture, discussion and actual practice for some of the tips.  He also reinforced his points by using simple language, citing real life examples and getting the participants to try out some of the activities. The contents and tips provided are very practical and can immediately be implemented in our work as well as personal lives. I have started to put into action some of the steps I learned during his workshop and experienced the difference it made to the quality of my work.  My presentations are more energetic, I am giving feedback to my team more frequently, I am constantly assessing my team environment and I ensure that I always take the time to coach my team members.
All in all, it was the most memorable focus area presentation and most practical. Hopefully I am on the right path to become a better leader.”,  Maizitun Mat Ya, Head, IT Programme Management, Malaysia Airlines
