    Member Relations Officer, Thailand

    “The Great Room has changed the way I feel about coming to work. It’s always positive vibes at a great place, working with a great team which makes each day, a great day. One of my favourite quotes that inspire me is “Dance like nobody’s watching, sing like no one is listening and live like it’s heaven on earth”, and my personal motto is to not be afraid to give up the good to go for the great!”

  • Aakriti Saproo
    Center Manager, Singapore
    “I started my career at The Great Room as an intern. Having worked in executive roles previously, I was taking a big risk starting from scratch in an unfamiliar industry. It’s been two years since I took a leap of faith and I haven’t had a dull moment at work. The steep learning curve did make me feel a bit vulnerable at times but I had a steady support system to fall back upon. The Great Room doesn’t just offer a fulfilling work life but also some amazing friendships and a lifetime worth of crazy stories!”
  • Amelia Bulner
    Associate Director, Singapore

    “The great room culture is the epitome of a perfect balance between corporate work and spontaneous fun. Our members are like a resourceful extended family, who share their different life experiences, work advice and travel adventures with us. I get to know more about the world around through the members who travel frequently. When I get to travel, I have all these amazing recommendations from them!”
