Top International 投資集團 總裁
這次 Covid-19 疫情的蔓延，讓全世界共同按下了「暫停鍵」，讓我們也能再度沈思、反省「生命」的核心價值，同時也藉由無遠弗屆的網路，有了許多的創新，然而值得大家去探討的是「生命與工作」是否有不被取代的可能？除了「效率與金錢」之外，是不是還有其他的價值觀可以追尋？

Happening Upon Bliss through Immersion in GFCBW
The promise I made two years ago to GFCBW has finally come to pass! I have been carefully preparing for this moment, by gradually releasing my duties and functions back in South Africa to my children and family members so that I could focus solely on GFCBW for the next two years. And as if the universe willed it, due to COVID19, my extended stay in Taiwan since December last year, has allowed me the opportunity to become more familiar with the operations within GFCBW, to travel this beautiful island and meet members from around the country. I have been able to hear directly from members regarding their best hopes for GFCBW, which has allowed me to better prepare for our future.
Since joining GFCBW 20 years ago, the biggest reward has been "Meeting Happiness"! To meet people in your lifetime that truly know you, love you, and care about you, is the greatest happiness. I am especially moved by the mutual support and love that I have experienced amongst all the GFCBW sisters. I am deeply indebted to all and hope to return this kindness double fold.
GFCBW stands before you today strong and glorious, is due to none other than our Founder Mrs. Jui-Chin Ko Tu's invaluable experience, Honorary Chairwoman Mrs. Nancy Shih courageous, Former Chairwoman Mrs. Liao-Yu Lin Former Chairwoman Mrs. Shu-Hui Huang and Former Chairwoman Mrs.Teresa Chen's crystal clear vision, as well as Former Chairwoman Mrs. Shu-Ying Li and Former President Mrs. Alice Liu's unstoppable determination. I shall not disappoint my predecessors, but will heed their teachings, and continue in their spirit of hard work and dedication to this organization.
With Covid-19 forcing the world to hit the "Pause" button, let us use the opportunity to contemplate and reflect on our lives and what we value in our lives. Although the internet has afforded us much connections and innovations, it also pushes us to explore the extent to which life and work are intertwined and whether each is replaceable by the other ? Other than productivity and monetary wealth, perhaps there are other more important pursuits?
I wish for each GFCBW member to have dreams, love, kindness, and meaning in their lives, to remember our mission "to develop world economy and trade by networking and utilising the world's potential with our heart and soul". May we work together in the next two years to connect more GFCBW sisters around the world, combining all our talents and strengths to improve and grow our economic footprint, and look forward to a even more successful and prosperous GFCBW .
Finally, please allow me to thank my team mates in advance for the next two years will require hard work and dedication, which I know I will receive from every member in the organization. My gratitude goes out again to all of the GFCBW sisters for your love and care, as well as the selfless dedication and support of the international consultants. I will always remember this kindness and will not forsake it. May we work together to cultivate wisdom and public welfare. I wish everyone peace, auspiciousness, happiness and health.
