“I believe in catching them young and grooming them. The Spartans took the kid at seven years old and trained him to be a fighter. He was released from the military at 30. That’s how Sparta became powerful despite only a population of 20,000. If you want to develop talent, you must start nurturing them from young.”

Hear From Our People
NUS Intern, 2016After joining EDIS, work literally gets the upper hand as compared to school because it’s just so fun and meaningful. I got to work in a team of talented and experienced individuals who then became more than just mentors at work, we forged friendship beyond work, which in turn has blessed the team with even more synergy. The EDIS team is dynamic and empowering because of the EDIS individuals, though each unique in their very special ways, embrace a common set of core values in mind. I am so priviledged to be part of the EDIS family where professionalism intersects with flexibility, this is indeed the place where personal and career development go hand in hand!”
