I only hear good comments from various agencies on the SHINE program. Well done. – Datuk Vincent Lee President, Association of Accredited Advertising Agents


I know that you have made a difference in the lives of the people at the Shine training. Many thanks on behalf of the 4As. We need some positive outlook for the industry and it starts firstly with a small group and then I’m sure it will catch on. – Tony Savarimuthu Vice President, Association of Accredited Advertising Agents


I think this training is extremely useful for us advertising people, as it makes us realise that in order for us to successfully change people’s life, we first need to look at and evaluate ourselves. – Participant Cassandra Lee, DDB International


I have found my creative staff re-energised from their experience (which is great!). They are coming across more positive, determined and taking the lead in some instances rather than just sit back and let things slide. – Szu Lee, Deputy Chairman & Executive Creative Director, McCann Erickson


I thought this seminar was for demotivated people. I was wrong! It’s to move potential people to greater heights that they’ve never imagined before. – Mabel Lau, Media Planner, Universal McCann
