Love Cheng Family – an initiative to show love and donation to late Mr Cheng’s Family

Mr Cheng Teck Hock, a taxi driver and a sole bread winner, died in a fatal accident on 12 May 2012 when a red Ferrari crashed into his taxi.

As a result of the tragedy, Mr Cheng’s eldest daughter, Stephanie Cheng was reported to have to put on hold her dream of going to the university. Her brothers might need help to catch up with their studies and to finance their education.

The family has to suffer the loss of a loving husband and father. In addition, they face a difficult and uncertain future.

This tragedy broke the heart of our nation. A lot of people have attended the funeral, many of whom have stretched out their hands to offer support and assistance.

I started this initiative to show that we have soul in Singapore. There is love, compassion and kindness burning in our community.

This initiative is started by a group of businessmen purely out of compassion and love for the family of Late Mr Cheng. We do not represent any organization, companies or interest groups.

My Top 10 Most Memorable Moments in 2010

What’s your top 10 moments in 2010?

Before you set new resolutions for 2011, it is always wonderful to reflect on the year and celebrate every wonderful moments so that we can grow from strength to strength.

My very best Top 10 Most Memorable Moments in 2010 are:

10. “The backup Plan” movie launch

On 29 April, Sony Pictures and my company (Table For Six) jointly organized the Back up Plan Movie and Dinner event. Our company conducted a survey on Singapore’ ladies’ backup plans should they remain single for the rest of their lives. The results were insightful and the press/media given us a lot of coverage.

9. Authorised Training Provider for NCSS

In early Jun, I was informed by National Council of Social Service (NCSS)  that I am granted the status to be the Authorised Training Providers for Charitable organisation and VWOs under the VCF Training Grant. I created courses:

  • Developing a Winning Social Media Strategy for NPOs
  • Social Branding for NPOs
  • Getting Sponsorship for VWOs and Publicity for Business
  • Coaching and Developing your Volunteers

8. Advanced Certificate in Training and Assessment – Certification.

From 9 Apr till 15 June, I took 6 modules, get through the assessments under Singapore National Employers Federation (SNEF). With this Advanced Certificate, I am able to Develop, Train and Assess courses under WSQ framework from WDA.

7. Singles Cruise Asia

Many people would have heard of Dating@Sea since 2007 where it is only open to singles from Singapore. It was all along done with Star Cruises as our cruise partner. Finally from 6-10 Dec, the 1st ever Singapore-Malaysia social event (Single Cruise Asia), a 5D/4N cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas was organised.

6. Interviewed by Ian Wright for Discovery Channel

It’s not everyday you get to be interviewed by a host from a international media, much more a international celebrity host – Ian Wright. He was in Singapore in May to do a special 10-part episode on Singapore. At the very last part, there is always the angle of singlehood issue in Singapore. I was contacted to create a social event where his team can film the entire event with interviews about myself and some of my participants.

5. Marrying Charity with Art

I had always wanted to do my bid for charity in forging strategic alliance between charities and business entities. I am glad in 2010 I have helped my good friend Ocean Wang to launch her career by painting 3 portraits of F1 drivers : Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber. The Alonso portrait was successful auctioned silently for $4000 in the charity dinner of Lutheran Community Care Services (LCCS) with the kind planning and organising service of Annie Chan.

4. 938live guest speaker for Positive Business Minute

3. 1st Malaysia media exposure

Though I have enjoyed more than 120 media and press interview and coverage of myself, business or events in Singapore and international main media, Malaysia was not one of them. This changed in August where I was invited to be interviewed on Malaysia radio BFM 89.9. From then on, i enjoyed 4 weeks of NTV 7 Breakfast show as a regular guest, 2 Newspaper features about being a Dating Coach for Singles Cruise Asia

2. Hosting 200 friends for Walking with Dinosaurs

Walking with Dinosaurs is the most successful and money-making family entertainment theatrical production in the world. For the first time ever, it came to Singapore from 1-12 Dec for a 10-day 20-show performance. My company won the tender to manage the social media marketing platform. One of my deliverables was to raise social brand ambassadors. I was given 200 tickets for the very first show and I invited charities and brand ambassadors to be the first few people to watch it. The turnout was 4000 so I had 5% of the stadium on 1 Dec.

1. Successful Entrepreneur award 2010

My 1st Successful Charity Project – linking Lutheran Community Care Services and Ms Ocean Wang

After months of conceptualizing a art project which will charity organisation with the passion of a racing sport – F1 Grand Prix, the Lutheran Community Care Services Gala Dinner puts a wonderful full-stop to a beautiful journey.

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Almost a year ago, my good friend Ocean Wang were in advanced stage of pregnancy, and decided to paint portrait of famous people. I suggested F1 drivers as Singapore was preparing for our 3rd Night Race since 2008.

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Believe it or not, we chosen Lewis Hamilton (not in picture), Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso months before F1 comes to Singapore. Little did we know the same 3 drivers were on top 3 driver standing vying for the ultimate driver championship. Though it went to Sebestian Vettel, it was a fun journey.

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Ocean had always wanted to impact the society in her unique ways, though she didnt know exactly how her paintings at that time will achieve that objective.

At about the same time, I was giving training to many VWOs, one of them was Lutheran Community Care Services (LCCS) where I met Rev Daniel Ang, the Executive Director. He was convinced that the new media is the way to go in engaging the public and the client they serve.

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Intuitively, I visualise the linkage between F1 racing and the youth (client of LCCS). Ocean and I shared the same concern that the the problems youth are facing today are like challenges F1 drivers are facing. There decisions to be made and dangers to risk. There is a need for pit stop and the staff and volunteers of LCCS are like the crews of the team to help refuel, change the wheels and strategise for the rest of the race. This process is termed “Changing Stories, Transforming Lives” – the tag line of LCCS.

Finally on 19 Nov 2010, during the inaugural Charity Golf and Gala Dinner organised by LCCS in Orchid Country Club, we managed to put up the 2 paintings for silent auction.

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110
Ocean was very excited!

The guest of Honour is Mr Ang Mong Seng, MP for Hong Kah GRC (Bukit Gombak)

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Yes! We sat at table 24!

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

Ocean is awarded with the Certificate of Appreciation from LCCS and she is gracious enough to share the limelight with me. :)

LCCS Gala Dinner - 191110

We did a silent auction of both painting during the dinner to raise funds. At the time of this post, I heard there is a gentleman by the name of Peter who got the highest bid for Fernando Alonso’s portrait. Many thanks for Annie Chan, who coordinated all the event schedule and the wonderful hosting by Sebestian Sim.

Make Birdies When Organizing Charity Golf

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of my VWOs’ participants for Social Media Training approach me today for some advice on organizing a Charity Golf. Both her organization and herself has zero knowledge about golf. The draw to organize one is try something new besides organizing yearly movie events.

Here are my suggested approach:

VENUE

This will need to be selected nine to twelve months in advance. Pick a golf country club that is willing to provide you with a concession for holding the event (discounts,  etc); you will have some bargaining power as your event will promote their club. Agree on prices for two types of attendee. Firstly you will need to accommodate golfers; they will require breakfast on arrival, golf and dinner for the evening. The second attendee will be for the non golfers only requiring dinner. Use the golf clubs facilities in your planning of the event – their golf professional will be able to advise on scoring, set up of the event and team or individual games and they can organize scoring for the golf cards etc.

PLANNING

You will need helpers, both for planning and preparing for the event and on the day, so recruit early! You will need to get together regularly to brainstorm ideas, set a timetable for completing tasks and create a budget. From this you can determine your entry fee by what your target market can afford and plan your expenses around that, such as food. It will be a long day for the golfers so you will need to think about what food is provided in the cost, and when you will begin the day. Your venue will be able to provide guidance.  Entertainment can vary but an after dinner speaker who will also compere the evening is ideal, as they can run an auction too.

SPONSORSHIP
Selling sponsorship can provide guaranteed income, prizes and promotional materials. The key to selling sponsorship is to convey that they are getting their money’s worth. You could design various levels of sponsorship:

• Title – company name could appear on all event marketing materials, tee sponsor signs and reception signs
• Supporting – company name could appear on all event marketing materials
• Hole in 1 – company name could appear on one tee; you could also offer this sponsorship to family and friends.

If you are employed by a large company you could start by asking them as well as local businesses, don’t forget to encourage them to enter a team. If you are mailing local businesses concentrate on industries that are linked e.g. Insurance, Legal, Property. You will be amazed at what a small local business world it can be!

PROMOTION

The more exposure your tournament receives the more participants and sponsors you will get. There are many ways to market your event including local press, radio, websites (free listings websites), council run calendars of events, press releases, signs and banners (place these in highly visible areas), flyers and posters which can be displayed in offices, community halls, the venue, local shops etc.

Your invitation is your most powerful promotional tool so ensure it is appealing and contains essential pieces of information such as name of event, date, time, sponsors logo, entry fee, entry deadline, what’s included in the fee, prizes, participant(s) details, handicap etc.

AUCTION

A maximum of five or six items is recommended as people will lose interest after that. Ensure there are lower value items as well as one or two key prizes and make sure you choose a good auctioneer. Consider hosting a silent auction as well with smaller prizes where the items (or a description of the auction item) are placed on display throughout the evening, and guests write their bids on open forms next to each item. This continues throughout the evening, with each person bidding higher than the previous one – especially successful after a drink or two! Prizes you source could be signed sporting goods, golfing holidays, golf equipment however they can be non golf related too. If these cannot be donated don’t be afraid to ask for the items at ‘cost’ price.

MANAGING THE DAY

Don’t forget to pre order fundraising materials such as banners, balloons, collection boxes, paper work for the auctions etc.  On the golf day you will need to register your golf teams, furnish them with score cards and a programme of events that should include an itinerary and a list of sponsors (speak to a local printers who may donate the programme), keep a scoreboard, ensure a timetable is kept too and ensure promotion of the fundraising activities is maintained.

Social Media and Charity are made for each other

In my VCF-approved training for VWOs/Charity/NPOs, I am often told the biggest obstacle for Volunteer Welfare Organisations (VWOs) is the lack of support/approval from top management. Social Media is utilised in the west for raising awareness, encouraging volunteerism and increasing donation. The best VWO I find which is the fore-runner on the social media applications is Lutheran Community Care Services (LCCS) led by Executive Director Rev Daniel Ang.

They are setting up Facebook fan pages, updating fans on their events like Charity Golf, causes, fund raising status, etc. Plans are underway to create Twitter, Youtube and Flickr pages. The latest is a campaign to auction off 2 paintings of F1 drivers – Mark Webber and Fernando Alonso

In my corporate training, I encourage them to do research on 5 international charities and these may be 5 good case studies for other charities to follow

If you belong to any VWOs and would like to explore using social media, I would be glad to design a customised training for your organisation.

A few Good Men & Women from Teen Challenge (735 Old Choa Chu Kang Rd)

On 5-6 August, i had the honour to conduct a social media strategy workshop for one of the leading charities in Singapore for Youth and Rehab program – Teen Challenge.

A key factor of success in the implementation of social media is always the question of corporate readiness and stakeholders’ buy-in. Teen Challenge has risen up to the challenge in devoting 2 days for corporate training of 9 key staff.

Their objectives is to use social media to increase awareness of their brand, share their mission, vision and organisation’s objectives. The increased awareness will help them to be well-positioned as a worthy cause for charities among businesses who have little or no knowledge of their existence.

With increased awareness will come increased publicity. The public will be able to identify them and be gainfully engaged through future volunteerism and fund-raising.

Situated in the wild wild west of 735, Old Choa Chu Kang Rd, TC Dare serves as a pitstop to many in the society who are struggling with rehab and addiction problems. Everyone deserves many 2nd chances. Even the best in life will make a mistake and need a pitstop in their lives. TC Dare serves that function, how far the occupants recover and integrate with the society will depend on our acceptance.

We can do our part by giving generously to their cause, please contact Adrian Tan 67937933.

As a trainer, my company – IDEAS & CONCEPTS will donate the social media workshop/training fees back to Teen Challenge as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) to support what they are serving.
