Within 12 months, at the age of 30, he was appointed train-the-trainer for Malaysia, to help fresh facilitators establish themselves.

SC Lee, Co-Founder, Business Development
SC Lee started her career in corporate banking where she was one of the fastest rising star, trusted with handling a portfolio of RM3 billion in her early twenties, including key conglomerates accounts such as Usaha Tegas group(Astro, Maxis), Hong Leong group(HL Industries, Hume Group, Hong Leong Financial Group), DRB-Hicom, Berjaya Group and Lafarge Malaysia.
Her impressive track record lead to her being recruited by a foreign bank, where she was tasked with building their SMI/SME financing business, building accounts such as Bonia, Perfect Foods Manufacturing, Brahims and many others, most are family owned businesses.
Upon achieving her Masters degree in IT, which she did part-time, she was headhunted by an MNC IT company to be a key account manager handling the financial industry, where she achieved her quota and qualified for their incentive trip in her first year.
At that point in time, her husband, MW Chow's coaching practice took off and she decided to take the entrepreneurial journey.
Her exposure and experience in banking/financing and working with SMI/SME's and family businesses proved to be invaluable in refining Familybiz Work's programs.
