FREDA LIU, LEAD PRODUCER | BFM 89.9
“I met Ed when he joined 2X as the Digital Lead. Ed was very quick in building rapport with his team members and stakeholders. When we worked together, Ed engaged me to design and deliver a team effectiveness session for his teams because he is keen to build a high performing team across his teams by bringing people together. He is the kind of leader who cares very deeply about people. Although we’ve only worked together for a short time, I’ve no doubt that Ed’s nurturing leadership will inspire and continue to bring the best out of his teams and people around him.”
