Meng Choon runs a software services practice Auguried Software that develop new ideas and approaches to tackle technological, organisational and social challenges in a constantly changing environment. He enjoys collaborating actively with clients, partners, peers and the youth and is a firm believer of we team win.
In between his career and family time for his wife and 3 children, he chills out regularly along running trails and on the volleyball courts and spends time sharing as a university educator and as a volunteer for various community programs.
By participating in this challenge, he hopes to reach out to like-mind individuals on our beloved island state and urge more to come forward to help one another and the less privileged to reach their fullest potential together.
