09 Our Culture | Multinational and Multicultural
Entrepreneurial
One of the most common descriptions of the
company is that it is ‘entrepreneurial’. We have
indeed created a new industry. Whatever the
challenge, the spirit has always been to “say ‘yes’
then find a way.” Equally if something really isn’t
working we are happy to move on and change
with the times. The fact that we have remained
privately owned has been key in giving us the
freedom to do what we want.
Everyone is encouraged to take responsibility,
come up with ideas, and solve problems. All efforts
are treated with respect – there’s no such thing
as a bad idea. Equally, we do not welcome repeated
mistakes – especially when people’s lives are at
stake. People work as a team to make sure they
get it right.

Mr Wong Ngit Liong, Chairman of the judging
panel, described Arnaud as embodying “the
true spirit of entrepreneurial excellence and
commitment to continue making a difference
to people’s lives.”
