Attention: Lynn Koo, Senior Manager
SHRI Academy | Singapore Human Resources Institute (SHRI)
Commendation: Bernard Tay
I had enrolled
in the HR Plus Postgraduate Diploma in HR and Talent Management
programme currently pursuing my 2nd last semester of the programme. I
had just completed the 36 hours training session for Human Resource
Development (HRD) Module delivered by lecturer, Bernard Tay and felt
well placed and confident on his strong professional teaching
As the session is on HRD, he had successfully internalised the true
essence of HRD by going slow, steadily and progressive to equip the
students with the relevant Skills & Knowledge. Bernard is a good
lecturer as per logical flow of his classes, detailed preparation of his
teaching materials, and his good use of examples. He is highly versatile
in his teaching and noteworthy in his provision of assistance and
guidance to the learners outside his professional and personal time to
ensure learners are well prepared for the assignment, including sharing
his teaching resources and approach with the learners.
Bernard is dedicated, not prepared to cut corners, and committed to high
quality research driven teaching with both academic and professional
practice impact. He is one exemplary teaching profession who is hard to
come by. I have absolutely no reservation in recommending Bernard to any
academic institutions or SHRI Academy’ Postgraduate Diploma programmes
to corporations who will like their HR capabilities to
move up the value chain, achieving long term sustainability.
Last but not least, I am sanguine that my HR colleagues and friends
shall gain insightful, meaningful experiences under his tutelage and
guidance in future courses at SHRI Academy. He had indeed made my
learning journey at SHRI Academy a meaningful one.

“I am writing to thank you for giving me this opportunity to upgrade
myself and to especially thank Mr Er Peh Nak, the course co-ordinator. I
am from the 79th Intake of Certificate In Human Resource Management. I
had not studied for many years since I left ITE in 1988. My mood was
down when I failed my examination for the first module. I will always
remember Mr Er for his advice to grab this opportunity to continue this
course. He is also friendly and helpful. With Mr Er’s encouragement, I
put my best effort to re-sit my examination. Without which, I would have
dropped out of this course. I am taking this opportunity to give my
compliments to Mr Er. I hope to continue with my Diploma in Business and
HRM at SHRI Academy."
A thank you letter from SHRI Academy student to Mr Jack Tan, lecturer
for Diploma in Banking & Finance.
I am a student from the just graduated class of Diploma in Banking &
Finance - (18th Intake). I am very thankful to my Bank Marketing's
lecturer, MR. JACK TAN for his great efforts and knowledge contributed
to my achievement for the diploma. I also wish to extend my special
thanks to Mr. Jack Tan for his very positive and inspiring slogans that
he shared with us in EVERY lectures .
It really inspires me to act and think positively during the course of
my studies and also in my personal life. Mr. Tan is always so
encouraging, motivating and positive in his thinking and teachings. He
conducts his lectures in a very interesting and fun way by sharing his
jokes from real life experiences relating to the topics to assist the
students to have a better understanding of the subject. He puts in lots
of efforts and time in developing the materials and make the lesson fun
for easy learning.
He also makes learning easier to understand and interesting by
summarizing the detailed lecturer notes into points forms in differently
well designed slides.Without his skills of teaching ,relevant knowledge
and patient , I may not be able to have a good understanding of the
subject. Throughout the last module of my course, I have learned and
gained a lot of knowledge from Mr. Tan.
As such, I am always looking forward to his interesting and exciting
lectures every week ! (Gosh ! Already started missing his lectures ! )
A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO MR. JACK TAN !

Two memorable experiences stood out for me
– one with my CEO and the other was with my Chief HR Officer. The
experience with my CEO occurred during his closing address at one of my
company’s leadership development programs. His simple question was
“What’s next?” This simple question if reflected and acted upon
earnestly, will prevent us from being complacent and drive us to
conscientiously think ahead always.
The second experience was a conversation with our CHRO during this
year’s HR leadership meeting. When asked what words of wisdom she could
offer to guide us into 2011, she said “Always stay close and relevant to
the business”, which we all knew was meant to inspire us to continue to
add value and be strategic partners to the business.
If I may add, I would say, “Stay close to doing what you love, stay
relevant and ahead by developing future capabilities needed to be
successful in the near future”.

Diploma in Business & Human Resource Management graduate
I graduated from SHRI Academy with professional
knowledge which helped in my HR career. The knowledge that we learnt
enhances our effectiveness and efficiency as HR Practitioners as we were
able to apply what we learnt at the workplace. I would recommend it to
anyone who is interested in a HR career. We need to constantly upgrade
ourselves & move ahead with times; learning is a never ending journey
for all of us.
