When the going gets tough, the tough get going! – Seng Boon Hock has been saved
Life at Deloitte
When the going gets tough, the tough get going! – Seng Boon Hock
Decisions magazine - Issue 12
Seng Boon Hock was born with cerebral palsy. He shares with us how he overcomes adversity to emerge stronger each time, and his belief that the only limitation is yourself.
Tell us what do you do at Deloitte?
I am currently a Junior Audit Associate and my role encompasses providing hands-on assistance to the audit engagement team. I hope to stay in the audit industry in the long run, and I would like to gain more industry knowledge, exposure and experience.
Describe your journey in Deloitte so far?
I am currently part of the Deloitte Associate Junior programme which supports my professional pursuits while working, and I am in the midst of obtaining the ICAEW Professional Certification.
Deloitte has a very inclusive, understanding and supportive culture. Despite having cerebral palsy, my colleagues do not treat me any differently and engage me actively during discussions. I am also thankful to have wonderful mentors who give me good advice whenever I encounter any challenges at work. Outside of work, my colleagues are also helpful and caring, and one of them even shared with me a contact where I can seek possible treatment for my cerebral palsy.
What do you do in your free time?
I like to watch football and I follow the English Premier League, World Cup and Euro Championships closely. My favourite football team is Manchester United and I am an ardent supporter of the England National Team!
“I feel that it is important to keep on learning, be willing to work hard and take both good and bad feedback when you are on the job so that you will be able to do the job better the next time.”
- Seng Boon Hock, Junior Audit Associate
