McMillan Woods: Staff annual trip
- 14-17 October 2010 Siem Reap, Cambodia

This year, our staff annual trip took us to the magical allure of the Angkor ruins in Siem Reap, Cambodia, where there are thousands upon thousands of beautiful and awe-inspiring sights to explore around the world and nothing speaks better of them that the experience of being there!

"This trip brought about a better team building bonding and an even greater camaraderie of closeness among the staff members where material wealth is not everything but the value of friendship and the true meaning of real living is what enhances the team spirit of everyone. What material wealth that is lacking for you and me, may well be more than enough for others as evidenced from the visit" echo Dato' Raymond Liew during the tour visit to Siem Reap.

 

Certainly, this staff trip leaves a memorable and mind-boggling experience worth retelling for many years to come. Siem Reap is a charming destination that imparts a sense of timelessness unfound anywhere else in the world.

Already, staff members are planning for the next trip and the destination is none other than Guilin, China.

Guilin, here comes the wonderful team from McMillan Woods in Year 2011...

Global Meeting

The global meeting for McMillan Woods Global held on Saturday, 3 July 2010 at Nikko Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was, as many new and existing members highlighted, as an "eye-opener" with a very positive feel for global growth.

The meeting commenced at 9.00am and ended at 6.15pm where members subsequently had a "Get-together" drinking session at the hotel lobby to watch the world football match where Germany scored 4 goals against Argentina which was to the delights of our German supporters!

1st Global Launch of McMillan Woods
- Friday, 2 July 2010 at Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The 1st Global Launch of McMillan Woods was a runaway success - Please refer to the newspaper write-up and the press release under "Publications" column.

At the global launch, the President, Dato' Raymond Liew announced that McMillan Woods Global is the first of its kind and the only global network to offer financial interest (which is optional) to all its members worldwide where each and every member have an ownership stake in the global firm.

He further emphasised that “Organic growth can be somewhat slow and may well be non-competitive, more so when Malaysia now goes global. Hence it is important that firms, particularly the smaller ones, consider some forms of joint ventures and affiliation arrangements with foreign firms with a view to be more competitive.

In view of the evolution of the business landscape, by going global with such affiliations, firms will be in a better and more dynamic position to offer a wider variety of services and technical expertise across more sectors of the industry and cover wider geographical locations. Additionally, they will be able to provide for the more sophisticated and diverse needs of the individual clients."

McMillan Woods seeks to be recognised as a global strategic financial business partner in fulfilling the needs of its clients by way of a ‘Multiple Disciplinary Partnership’. In today’s fast-moving business environment, accounting firms need to increasingly transcend Malaysian borders and move into international frontiers if they are to access new markets and to achieve greater growth potential, Liew said.

The theme for the First Global Launch in Malaysia was "One Name, One Network & One Malaysia", Liew offered. "We want to be able to be able to propel Malaysia as a leading home grown brand worldwide.

Each year, McMillan Woods organise an annual staff vacation to a different part of the globe to reward their staff for their loyalty and hard work.

Recently, the staff members had their annual vacation in Chiangmai, Thailand in the month of November 2009.

Says, Dato' YS Kok, "What better way to thank your staff members than to reward them with a yearly vacation other than the yearly Christmas dinner, Chinese New Year's "lou-sang", Buka Raya etc. Long after the staff members have forgotten their yearly bonuses and cash rewards, certainly they will always remember the unique experience of adventure, discovery of the unknown horizon and most importantly, relaxation that a holiday provides - not forgetting the shopping spree!"

At McMillan Woods, we believe in rewarding our hardworking staff members by providing them with at least, a fully paid vacation each year, as a gesture of our gratitude and in showing them our appreciation.
