Chin was previously the Head of Learning, Competency, and People Development with ExxonMobil, as well as a Certified Professional Trainer and Facilitator (certified in University Malaya) who has also trained under Joel Bauer, a mentor of mentors.
Chin chose a non-conventional path in the late 1970s to pursue his vocational /craft education (Mechanical Engineering) in one of the only two polytechnics that existed in Malaysia then. He subsequently spent his entire 38 years career with ExxonMobil Corporation Malaysia, half of which was at offshore platforms in South China Sea. He was one of the pioneers in developing leadership, and rose through rank and file to be a notable safety advocate.
Facilitated by the systematic application of best practices in learning and mentoring, he quickly rose to become the Person in Charge of offshore platforms in less than 8 years. He was in this role for 12 years prior to his various overseas postings in USA and West Africa (Angola), expanding his experience from shallow water, conventional oil and gas platforms to deep-sea - FPSO operations.
In his capacity as Head of Learning and People Development group, his team was responsible in recruiting and grooming hundreds of best-in-class offshore technicians specializing in oil and gas operations; many of which have since progressed to leadership positions within the organization.
Chin and his team are fond of using role plays and storytelling as effective ways to impart safety knowledge, many of which are featured in this book.
Post retirement, Chin pursued his dream of writing this book as a legacy of his journey in safety leadership. He recently joined Alliance for Safe Community (IKS) on invitation from Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye, the founding chairman of the NGO with the mission to promote and realise safety as our way of life, for the betterment of the community and the nation.
