Five CEOs including YTL's Francis Yeoh yesterday attempted to delve deeper into the meaning of true wealth at the Forbes conference in Singapore. They share their views during the aptly named session Beyond The Pot Of Gold: Lessons On Drive And Success.

   

The Star Online, September 13, 2007

TAN SRI FRANCIS YEOH  

Managing Director  

YTL Corp Bhd  

There are many different ways to measure success. I had a dream to own a private island and to have Pavarotti sing for me and both happened in 1994 when I was still a very young man. So what's next? For me SUCCESS is a means to an end. The end is of course to be a man of value. To be so we have to  understand the concept of stewardship where you take personal responsibility to God for all of life and also for manís affairs.  

People can sometimes be arrogant and want live long but not deep lives. My father is more than 80 years old but I do not want him to retire yet because he is still a force for good. 

You can continue giving jobs to people and your products and services can be enriching. If you keep taking from people then you should retire fast. Are we all moving too fast? To me the ultimate luxury is time. Not many people seem to be able to boast they possess quality time in abundance. 


   

ANDREW FORREST

Chief Executive Officer †

Fortescue Metals Group Ltd †

MY strategy is to divide my work into little achievable steps. Most important is the first step. †

By taking steps, we can take the illogical elements out and it becomes easier to populate people to create the vision. It is a self-fulfilling dream and if you keep your people focused on the distant point, you should not worry if you fail. †

People should spring out of bed with joy and energy (every morning) that they can be useful and play a critical role. If we have the steps lined out for them, their tasks become meaningful and identifiable. †


   

ANOUSHEH ANSARI †

Chairman †

Prodea Systems Inc

(In 2006, she captured headlines around the world as the first female private space explorer and the first astronaut of Iranian descent) †

I PAID US$20mil for a one-way ticket to space. It was well worth the money spent. I look at the image of earth and it is a very small part of the universe. We sometimes lose perspective ... why do we worry so much. †

Iím pursuing my second Masterís degree in astronomy. One measure of success is: how many lives we touch and change. Success in business is used to fulfil my dream.††


   

LINDSAY FOX †

Founder

Linfox †

ACADEMICALLY, I was a disaster. At 16, I convinced a second hand truck dealer to sell me a truck. It has been a practical experience for me and my company now operates in 12 countries in this region with full operations in the supply chain management. †

The real key is people. You have to bring them along with you, like an extended family, to work with you and not for you. †

If you lose your real objective, it is not going to change your lifestyle, so get out there and do something you enjoy. †

When you have nothing, you are more adventurous. †


   
SHASHI RUIA †

Chairman †

Essar Global Ltd †

AFTER achieving success, the question is when to stop. To me, it is about dissemination of information and knowledge one has gained. How to teach others, take them under your wings, guide them and make them into entrepreneurs Ė that has become a mission for me now. †

In that respect, I have guided one entrepreneur who now builds offshore supply boats and another runs a shipbuilding yard.†
