I have worked in many different settings and organizations, and ROHEI is definitely quite unusual. In most places, there are one or two exceptional, diligent, kind, courteous, smiling, friendly, helpful people, but at ROHEI I have not found anyone who isn’t any of that!
“ROHEI is such a great place to work!” is something I hear often from different colleagues. I have experienced that ROHEI is indeed different—it is special and vibrant to people inside and those looking in–visitors, participants, clients.
ROHEI’s culture starts from the top down. ROHEI’s leadership allows the company to have the same heart, to exhibit the same ethos of humility, of diligence, of helpfulness, a culture that stirs us to care for each other and to do good. It is a privilege for me to work and serve alongside with—as one client puts it—“an exceptional team with an extraordinary touch.”
When he is not in coaching or mentoring mode, Kenneth loves to play the role of a comedian. Kenneth’s warmth and genuine care for those around him as well as his sense of humor makes people at ease around him.
Kenneth loves to spend his free time with family and friends building and deepening relationships through meals. He is also the handy man of the house and loves working on all kinds of projects with his son and even his daughter chips in! He loves char kway teow (fried noodles) and yu-tiao (deep fried dough sticks!) but has to restrain himself for health’s sake!
