Looking for people who live in Singapore!

Postby dinohuskic » Thu, 22 Sep 2016 7:55 pm

Dear expats,

I'll shortly introduce myself, because this post isn't very much about me, it's more about you.
My name is Dino Huskic and we (the other group-members and I) are conducting a research for the Ministry for Education for the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. The research is about leadership styles that are being used in Singapore.

We are looking for people that have been living in Singapore with a managerial function. We wondered if there are managers over here that could fill in a short survey about leadership styles in Singapore. We would be very grateful if some if you could help us further. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate. We are glad to answer them.

So to summarize: we are looking for people with a managerial function, that have been living in Singapore for at least two years.

If you are ready to fill in the survey, this is the link to the survey: https://nl.surveymonkey.com/r/ccbsleadership

Thanks in advance & have a great day! :D

Yours faithfully,

Dino Huskic

Hi there,

I'm sorry, but what is the meaning of "FT"?

Surely you can not be a Singaporean.

To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Hi x9200,

Well, I'm not a Singaporean. I'm an employee of the Dutch Foreign Ministry of Foreign Affairs. :)

If I'm correct, FT means 'Foreign Talent', right? Well, in that case, for this survey it does not matter whether a respondent is foreign or a native Singaporean. The only requirement is that respondent must have been living in Singapore for at least 2 years, while the respondent has to be working in a managerial function.

Yours faithfully,

Dino Huskic

Let me get it right, you post to a Singapore expats forum calling "fellow Singaporean", yet you are not even a Singaporean but you try to back up your stand (or no idea what else) telling us you are an employee of Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. I mean, you even don't know the name of your employer? Right. Spreek je Nederlands?

I'm not sure how one can be an employee of the "Dutch Foreign Ministry of Foreign Affairs" and a student at the same time (as of September 22 at 9:53pm, according to FB) but I'm sure Dino will come back and clarify this shortly.

Hi all,

I see a lot of replies. Unfortunately, I see that I was not clear when it comes to explaining who I am and what I do. Also, I've certainly made a mistake when it comes to using the word ''fellow'' (for which I am sorry). I am affraid I used it in the wrong context.

I'll reply on the messages in order to tell you guys who I am, what I do & what I want. :)

@x9200: I'm not Singaporean, I'm Dutch. I used the word ''fellow'' in the wrong context. I'm sorry. I prefer to say that I am an employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, since I am doing an internship over there. This strategy is often used by interns in order to be taken more seriously when it comes to an online survey. That being said, I am a student of the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. Consequently, the research I am doing is partly for the Ministry and partly for the University.

I must admit this one made me laugh. I was typing that message on my phone. I couldn't really clearly see what I was typing, since the website does not seem to be compatible with my Android phone. :p
