What is the motivation that fuels your daily routine?
I would say that I am a self-motivated person and at the beginning of every year, I set goals for my firm to accomplish. As a leader, I further divide my goals into quarterly goals such as increment of clientele, revenue, training, and staffing. To achieve our firm’s annual designated goals, we tend to perform every single work on a day-by-day basis very carefully and we make sure that every step that we take is right. Therefore systemization and computerization of business data are very essential nowadays to get the reporting and analysis to monitor the business operation. We make the time-to-time correction for any incorrect steps to accomplish the annual designated goals and that’s how motivation comes along without creating it.
How would you define NSH Corporate Consultants as an organization and its current position in the market?
I consider NSH Corporate Consultants a new form of a professional firm that departs from a conventional accountant practicing firm. In this technological world with high gearing of technology, we need to adapt it to our present business environment. Clients now are expecting more services from the public accountant to satisfy their needs, changing and complying with the prevailing business environment, particularly regarding government agencies’ rules and regulations. Thus, the firm is not only providing financial reporting or filing but also creating extensive accountant services for our clients to meet their demands. We have a unique firm structure that implemented a low-level management structure whereby all the workers directly report to an accountant without going through a series of superiors, such as managers, executives, or superiors. This is important to guide the subordinate directly and enhance reporting and problem-solving time, consequently reducing the cost of conduct, mean increase profit margin so our consultation fee is affordable. Our reward program is also unique where we give rewards to our staff based on the volume of work done by them. After adopting information technology for communication and recording, we became the first to start an accountant interactive website built in Malaysia for free-utilize by our clients where they could retrieve their documents and other information about their corporate accessible through our website at anytime and anywhere.

What advice would you give to budding industry leaders?
The budding leader is advised to be more sensitive to the development and expansion of AI as most of our consultation works maybe migrate from personal to AI in the near coming future. However, AI cannot replace human work thus advise to put more commitment to understanding the environment of clients’ entities. To be a good Business consultant means not only having in depth knowledge of various aspects of a corporation, but also covering your experience and knowledge about a specific action taken that will lead to any consequences, impacts, and results in the short and long term. Thus, good business consultants always acquired vast experience in various industries and are sensitive to prevailing market conditions which may be interlinked with the entire business environment of your clients to make good judgments and correct actions for improving your client’s business performance.
