28 JW Sam

Con­nect­ing the Dots

Prestige (Malaysia) - - Hublot -

A cit­i­zen of the world, a vi­sion­ary real es­tate de­vel­oper and an en­tre­pre­neur with the fore­sight to con­nect busi­nesses with new op­por­tu­ni­ties. Through­out his child­hood, JW Sam has led a multi-faceted life­style across mul­ti­ple cities, which in turn has in­flu­enced his ca­reer in var­i­ous in­dus­tries. Whether it is im­prov­ing the lives of Kuchin­gites through in­no­va­tive prop­erty projects un­der the RH Group or de­liv­er­ing cre­ative so­lu­tions to brands through his epony­mous con­sul­tancy firm House of JW, Sam counts him­self as for­tu­nate to be able to lever­age on his global up­bring­ing be­fore re­turn­ing to Bor­neo, a place he fondly calls home. “Through chal­leng­ing of stereo­types from both ends and shar­ing new per­spec­tives on pre­con­ceived ideas, be­ing able to share these per­spec­tives from the view of the re­spec­tive sides, al­low for bar­ri­ers to drop and stronger bonds to de­velop be­tween both sides.”

Con­stantly main­tain­ing an open mind to un­der­stand­ing, adapt­ing and learn­ing to new sit­u­a­tions, is­sues and ideas are part of the work phi­los­o­phy he em­bod­ies. By adopt­ing a com­pre­hen­sive un­der­stand­ing on how dif­fer­ent de­vel­op­ments have the power to im­pact the lives of the sur­round­ing com­mu­nity, Sam is also in­volved in a tech­nol­ogy sys­tem known as SO­COE. The sys­tem en­ables mo­bile apps to sit on it by pro­vid­ing more ef­fec­tive con­nec­tiv­ity and coun­ter­act­ing dig­i­tal dis­par­ity. “The vi­sion of smart cities and in­te­grated homes can be re­alised through this tech­nol­ogy sys­tem. That would dras­ti­cally im­prove the qual­ity of life and safety of the peo­ple, as well as trans­form the way peo­ple live, work and learn.”
