How do you gain the trust of others and what keeps you going at work?
We get Ms Claire Chua and Mr Josh Lim from our Corporate Services team to share with us.
“The most rewarding part of my job is receiving appreciation from my clients spurs me on and constantly reminds me that I am supporting them well. I like to be proactive and knowledgeable so my clients can trust and rely on me. Many times, they introduce clients to me and it makes the acquisition process easier.” – Claire Chua
“I read up to keep myself updated with the latest medical news and equip myself with relevant knowledge. This helped me to offer professional advice to my clients as a trusted healthcare consultant. I feel affirmed when my clients request for me to continue as their account manager. It encourages me, giving me the confidence that I am on the right track.” – Josh Lim

Young children, before the age of two, get as many as eight to 10 colds a year.
“This is not a sign of a weak immune system but simply that the growing child is being exposed to many viruses,” advises Dr Wong Wei Mon, Senior Family Physician, Raffles Medical – Raffles Holland V.
Dr Wong adds that though cold medications offer relieve symptoms; they do not provide a cure or shorten the duration of the common cold.
📖 Reading to your child has a lot of benefits. Not only does it help promote bonding and strong relationship with parents and carers, it also inculcates one’s love for lifelong reading.
“Reading and sharing stories can help children learn the difference between “real” and “make believe,” shares Dr Chitra Ramalingam, Specialist in Paediatric Medicine & Consultant, Raffles Children Centre.
🎊 In case you didn't know, Raffles Holland V will turn ONE on October 21! To celebrate this joyous occasion, the mall is giving away mall vouchers! To stand a chance to win, all you have to do is to head to down to our mall and 📷 snap a photo of it*!

“There was a couple who had unsuccessfully tried to conceive for many years despite turning to fertility treatments. I was with them throughout their whole journey, encouraging them and telling them not to give up. They eventually succeeded, and I was so happy for them!
