My motivation for starting this new blog is primarily commercial. Its main purpose is to let people know about my work/business, and especially for potential clients to be able to find me whenever they search the internet to look for 5S trainers and consultants.
During this past few years, I have noticed an increased interest among foreign companies in implementing the Japanese technique of good housekeeping and workplace organisation known as 5S. Sometimes they do get to my website Hoshin Consulting. But other times they approach the bigger consulting firms; and then guess what happens. The 'Big Boys' end up subcontracting the assignment to me and the client ends up paying more, and I end up earning less.
Recently, I attended a internet marketing seminar where the speaker told us that nowadays, all businesses should set up a blogs. And thus My 5S Corner was born.
But, besides 'selling' my services, I really do hope to share knowledge and experience with my readers, including my clients and fellow productivity consultants. To quote my 'gahmen blogger' friend, Ivan Chew, the Rambling Librarian:
"I feel knowledge ought to be shared -- especially if people want to learn. It's also part of the general blogger's culture -- we willingly share and help the people we know, and if the cause is worthy. "Learning" is always a worthy cause"So please do drop by and look around. I will try to blog on topics that will be of interest to the general public as well. My brother Chun Chew (Zen) has also promised to support me with his stories. It helps that he is retired of course.
