Changing career might seem daunting, but it can also be one of the most rewarding experiences. Here's the story of Dan Loi, who made the shift from a former Air Force Safety Officer to now a Great Eastern Agent of Life.
What motivated you to make the shift?
“Other than looking for a challenge and better advancement prospects, I wanted a long-term career when I can be happy with what I was doing and have a better work-life balance.”
How has your past vocation as a Air Force Safety Officer helped you in your current career with Great Eastern?
“As a previous training and safety officer, I learnt how to communicate and manage trainees and team members effectively. I was also able to listen and communicate with clients well and cater my planning according to their needs.”
What’s your favourite thing about being an Agent of Life?
“I get to meet people from all walks of life and I do not only have the opportunity to share about the importance of financial planning, but also the chance to learn new life skills from my clients.”
