18 Questions With Nadine Wong Ho | Meet The Senior Management Team

Meet The Team

18 Years of SOLID means 18 questions with each of the SOLID Senior Management team who, along with your support, keep the wheels of our successful business moving ahead.

Designed to be insightful and fun (what our brand is really all about) – this series is really a ‘the-people-behind-the-business’ type of thing. Please join me in getting to know our Senior Management Team a little more. 💙

Next up we have: Nadine Wong Ho

Nadine is our Finance Manager. She is a brilliantly hard-working and uber dedicated Team member who is ALWAYS ready with a smile and gentle encouragement for anyone who needs it. She also secretly loves to rip up the dance floor 😉

Nadine likes to stay in the ‘background’ but we actually wouldn’t be able to function without her watchful eye and amazing attention to detail. This is the perfect way to get to know her a little better!

Her 18 questions went a little like this:

Question 1: What’s your favourite time of day?

I’m a night owl

Question 2: What’s the biggest learning experience you’ve had?

The biggest learning experience I’ve had is realising and accepting that things may not always go my way, but there’s always something positive to learn from the experience. It leads to self-discovery, resilience and adaptability.

Hitting the snooze button 5 times before waking up.
